Oscar fame kids may be gifted flats

A day after the child actors Azharuddin Ismail and Rubina Rafiq of “Slumdog Millionaire” walked the red carpet and shot to fame, the Mumbai Congress has proposed to gift a flat each to them.

Azharuddin Ismail Shaikh Usman and Rubina Rafiq Asghar Ali Qureshi, both residents of Garib Nagar slum in Bandra East, Mumbai, played the youngest version of the lead characters in the Oscar-winning film and were flown to the US for Hollywood’s biggest awards ceremony Sunday.

“Slumdog Millionaire” won eight Oscars at the 81st annual Academy Awards — almost following the fairytale journey of its hero in the movie.

“These children have brought laurels to the country. It is our duty to look after and safeguard them,” Mumbai Congress president Kripashankar Singh said Tuesday.

Rubina’s father Rafiq is a casual carpenter while Azharuddin’s father Ismail trades in old furniture.
