Azharuddin Mohammed, the kid from Slumdog Millionaire is doing great. His father welcomed the little thespian home today by slapping him in the face and kicking him. If you’re wondering if this is customary in their culture, it is not, I don’t think.
The abuse started when Mohammed’s dad, Ismail, became enraged after he told him he wanted to be left alone after his long flight home from LA and didn’t want to be put on display outside of his home. Which is a tent.
His mother cried out for him to stop, but Ismail continued to dish out the physical punishment to the child-star.
Azharuddin stood up to his dad, flaring the temper of the 45-year-old, who launched himself at the lad shamelessly.
Azharuddin yelped out as he tried to evade the older man’s flailing hands and feet.
He dashed into the tent that makes up his family home, followed by his father, where the young Slumdog star tried to cower in the corner.
This kid was in an Oscar winning movie and he still lives in a tent. That’s… awesome. Looks like Mohammed knows how to keep it real. Unlike that snooty bitch Freida Pinto, all glamorous on the red carpets and basking in her fame. Mohammed probably thinks that Freida is a real piece of work.
