Fire Destroys Home Of Young Slumdog Millionaire Star

Filed under: Film FlickersSad Sad

This is so sad.

The home of Rubina Ali, the young star of the 2008 Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, was destroyed by a fire Friday night.

Rubina and her family lived in a hut near the Bandra Railway Station near Mumbai. In the clip (above), you can see the village of huts that were destroyed by the fire. More than 500 huts were affected. Five people were reported missing.

In the fire, she lost everything, including her photographs, newspaper clippings, and film memorabilia that she had saved from the film.

Rubina's family was offered a flat after the film turned into a success, however her family turned it down, saying it was not big enough to house all of them.

On the night of the fire, Rubina said:

"Along with my house, all my good memories of my time on the film have been reduced to ashes. My new school books have been totally burnt. However, I feel relieved to see all my family members safe. The fire is so huge, it could have cost us our lives.

Seeing it burnt to ashes in front of my eyes, I feel like I have lost everything. This was all we had."

This just breaks our hearts.

We're just so relieved that Rubina and her family were not injured in the fire. Our hearts go out to them.

Richest Man In India Builds A $1 Billion Home!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Holy shit.

We guess when you're worth that much money, you have to really strive to find new ways to be excessive!

Check out (above) billionaire - and richest man in India - Mukesh Ambani's very modest and reasonably priced brand new house in Mumbai!

Yes. That's somebody's HOUSE.

We'll let you sit and process that for a minute.

The 27-floor property, which is allegedly worth $1,008,645,533 (£630m), has its own gym, health club, dance studio, ballroom, 50-seat cinema, elevated garden space with enough room for trees, THREE helicopter pads (because one just isn't enough!), and a staff of 600 people to keep it running smoothly!

Well, that should keep his wife and three children sufficiently entertained for the rest of their lives!

Just, wow. Outrageous.

They better throw one hell of a house-warming party, that's all we have to say!

Thoughts??
