Slumdog Millionaire Star Loses Everything In Fire, Designers To Help

- By Bossip Staff

Designer duo Ashima and Leena Singh have come forward to help Slumdog Millionaire’s child star Rubina Ali, who lost her home in the big blaze in Bandra, Mumbai. The designers have decided to give specially-designed outfits, pair of shoes and other accessories to support Rubina, who shot to global fame after her role as young Latika in Danny Boyle’s multiple Oscar-winning movie in 2009. “Besides wardrobes, we will be giving her an album showcasing the star’s talent in ramp shows for us. We will try to help her in rebuilding her house and career,” said Leena.

“We have also asked our friends and other artists in Mumbai to tender help to affected people,” the designer said. At least 21 people were injured and over 2,000 people were homeless in the fire broke out in Garib Nagar slums near Bandra (East) on March 4. The family of Rubina watched helplessly as their shanty in the crowded slum went up in flames. “We all were at home watching TV, when a neighbour came to alert us about the fire. We all rushed out. We spent the entire night at the railway station. I have lost everything including books and precious belongings like photographs, newspaper clippings and memorabilia of the film,” the 12-year-old child artiste said.

    SMH @ being in an award winning film and still living in the slums. Her parents have shown time and time again to have poor judgment. I’m not informed on things like Trust Funds for children in foreign countries, but I hope she has some money socked away and her parents didn’t squander it all. Such a beautiful and talented little girl.
