The actress was forced to flee the Garib Nagar slum as the blaze, which left 21 people injured and 2,000 homeless, broke out in March (11).
She lost all the awards and newspaper clippings she had saved from her role in the Danny Boyle movie, but she has reason to smile again after the director’s Jai Ho Trust found a new property in Mumbai for her family.
Ali tells Britain’s The Sun, “I am very happy with the developments. Ever since the movie was released, it has been my dream to have my own house in Mumbai. I even have my own bedroom.”
The 13 year old and her relatives will move into the property later this month (Oct11).
