Slumdog and real life

What do you do when you are a slum dweller and your kid gets in all the papers because he was in an Oscar-winning movie?

If you happen to be Ismail, father of Azharuddin Mohammed, you get your own name in the papers by slapping your kid in the presence of photographers. Why the slap? Because the kid was tired and did not want to parade in front of the press any more.

The cringe-making images are here.

Oh God.

Not that it is of any consolation, but most American child stars also seem to have lousy parents.
