What, no one wants to circulate this story, too?

Slumdog MillionaireEveryone was so quick to pounce on the “Slumdog Millionaire” smear pieces of the week, yet this Sandy Cohen AP piece as been sitting there, waiting for similar obsessive circulation for 31 whole minutes.

Here’s a taste:

The makers of “Slumdog Millionaire” have done more for the film’s child stars than their parents ever could, the father of one young actress said.

Rafiq Qureshi, whose 7-year-old daughter, Rubina, appears in the film, said that the filmmakers enrolled his daughter in school and “are taking complete care of my child.”

“Whatever a parent could have done, they have done much more than that,” he said during an interview with AP Television in Mumbai, India on Wednesday.

The rest here. Let’s move on, shall we? Whoever did the whispering, it was a valiant effort.

    A very nice story and comforting to know the kids are well cared for. That’s the most important thing.

    Its really disgusting how the media are twisting these bullshit story. Boyle did not want to give a lot of money to these 7 yr olds. So he set up a trust fund instead to fully support these children in along run with theirr education. Azza’s father is actually an alcoholic. If money was given to them, thier parent would take advantage of it and they would probably waste it on alcohol.
    It is better for the children to get their money when they turn 18.

    This is the most beautiful part of that article:

    +++++

    “I would like to study and also pursue a career in the films,” Rubina said, adding, “Our movie should definitely get an award (at the Oscars) because it’s such a nice movie.”

    +++++

    Amen, Rubina. It is such a nice movie.
