Washington, Feb. 28(ANI): 'Slumdog Millionaire' director Danny Boyle visits India once a year to meet his young actors Rubina Ali and Azharuddin Ismail.
The English film director has built a 'Jai Ho Trust' for the two that ensures Ali and Ismail are given education and housing facilities, and are given financial security as well, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
Boyle admitted that he was inspired from 'Harry Potter' series as a shining example of how movie stardom doesn't need to ruin children's lives.
