Little Mohammed Ismail (all the way to the left) finally has some relief!
Ismail and his family moved into the 250 square foot (25 sq meter) ground floor flat, which is in a modern building complex, with electricity and running water. It is a short drive away from Juhu, a suburb home to some of India’s most famous film stars.
The Jai Ho Trust, named after the film’s award-winning track and set up by the producers, bought the $42,000 home on Ismail’s behalf and will give it to him when he turns 18.
Ismail’s earlier dwelling, a tarpaulin and sheet hut, was demolished by the civic authorities in May as it was illegal.
The Jai Ho Trust is looking for a house for Ismail’s co-star Rubina Ali, who still lives in a slum with her family.
Little Ismail was the child star beaten by his dad. Bet the dad is kissing his butt now!
