Fire rages through ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actors’ previous homesMarch 5th, 2011 - 12:25 am ICT by IANS
Mumbai, March 4 (IANS) A major fire raged through a slum in Bandra area of Mumbai Friday night where the child actors of Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire” used to stay.
Apart from two people taken to hospital with breathing problems due to the smoke, no other casualties were reported in the fire in Gareeb Nagar slum, adjacent to the Bandra railway station, police said.
The blaze broke out at around 8.30 p.m. and quickly spread through the dense hutments. A total of 15 fire tenders were struggling to extinguish the blaze as of 10.45 p.m.
As the fire was near the railway station, the Central Railway has partially curtailed operations on its Harbour Line.
Azharuddin and Rubina, who played the roles of the protagonists in their childhood, used to live in this very slum until they moved out after homes were arranged for them by the “Slumdog..” crew. Several other children, who played bit roles in the movie, still stay in the slum.
