(Xinhuanet/Agencies) The 10-year-old child artist of Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire , Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail may no longer be cherishing the rousing welcome he received at home a few days ago! His home is set to be razed within a week.

The child actor lives in an illegal structure made of tarpaulin sheets with his one-eyed mother and TB-suffering alcoholic father lives, says reports.

Officers of Brihanmumbai Municipal Council–BMC is the civic body that governs the city of Mumbai– said due to the media attention on Ismail’s family they became aware of the illegal home.

Assistant Municipal Commissioner Umashankar Mistry said: ‘The plot has been earmarked as a playground and we will demolish all illegal settlements. We will fix the schedule soon, but it will be in a week.’

Azharuddin said: ‘I want some proper place to live with my parents.’
