PostSubject: Gerry makes a second visit to Slumdog kids while in India   Tue May 26, 2009 11:13 am

The India Times is reporting this:

Gerard visits Slumdog kids
27 May 2009, 0000 hrs IST, AFSANA AHMED , TNN

Hollywood actor Gerard Butler, who notoriously partied at Priyanka Chopra’s Versova residence, also reportedly took Slumdog Millionaire kid stars Azhar Ismail and Rubina Ali to a five-star dinner when he was in Mumbai recently.

What nobody knows is that the actor also secretly visited their shanties in Bandra’s Garib Nagar slums. With a severe headache and fever, Gerard first went to Azhar’s house, but the boy had gone out to buy some pet birds and the Hollywood actor was compelled to wait for him to return. Gerard, who has seen Slumdog thrice and is a fan of the young actors, was shocked at the pitiable condition in which child star of the Oscar winning film lived.

From there, Gerard went to Rubina’s house, where he chatted the girl and her parents. He reportedly told Rubina that he would one day love to have a daughter like her. And that when she grew up, she was bound to be a stunner.

But before that, the Hollywood star promised to help in cash and kind towards bettering the kids’ living conditions. “Humne suna hai ki woh paanch lakh dene wale hai Azhar ke naam pe,” said Azhar’s mother. There was no confirmation of what Gerard has promised Rubina.

I thought one of the little girls lost her home...I hope there was help before that happened.

I'm sure going through the slums makes one sympathetic towards those less fortunate.

Hollywood Hunk Gerard Butler was very excited to meet the small stars of reel and real life Rubina Ali and Azhar Ismail. This Hollywood actor infamously Partied at Priyanka Chopra’s place. Hardly people know that Hollywood actor Gerard Butler secretly visited them in Garib Nagar Slums. Gerard who was suffering from cold and high fever still visited first Azar’s place and then Rubina’s place. He has watched the movie more then five times and so he is biggest fan of these small children’s. He was shocked to see the place where they lived and decided to help them financially. Rubina’s mother said that Gerard have told them that he is paying five Lakhs for Rubina’s Future.

Neither have I Alice and I can't seen myself doing it too soon.

The lives of the young actors in the film after the movie release was one that I knew could haunt all concerned and perhaps draw some negative backlash and more speculation around their sub-human living conditions.

Danny Doyle (and producers?) has apparently set up a care trust for the two young lead actors which should see their educational and basic living needs covered until they are legal age. But I don't see how he could not have morally done that anyway, successful movie or not. I wonder how he decided who would receive the trust?
