Slumdog Millionaire’s Star lost father

A huge controversy has arisen over the issue that whether people from slums have a right to live a normal life or he is destined to be a Slumdog.  The child star Azhar Ismail who played the role of Salim in The Slumdog Millionaire has recently lost his father who caught tuberculosis and couldn’t survive due to it. Muhammad Ismail was a poor man who was very proud of his son. The family was living in a slum called Garib Nagar until two months before the movie director managed to buy them a flat by setting up a trust.
The film grossed 86m Euros woAzhar Ismailrld wide and won 8 Oscars. But the ground realities couldn’t be changed. A Slumdog lost his father and further to it, most of the amount he earned from acting was spent on the cure of his father. The boy is just ten years old. He was at school when his father passed away. He knew about his father’s death on returning to home. It is also said that Muhammad Ismail was addicted to alcohol which could be a vital cause for hindrance in recovery. But, Azhar’s story has become the real
story and has superseded the film’s fake story.
