Oprah spends time in 10x10 Mumbai slum

Chat show hostess Oprah Winfrey garnered headlines when she vicited India earlier this year. She was pictured visiting Aishwarya Rai's daughter Aaradhya at the Bachchan residence, grooving with the Page 3 people and Bollywood stars during a party in Mumbai as well as attending the Jaipur Literature Festival and being interviewed by ace journalist Barkha Dutt.

However, what the media largely missed out was her visit to Mumbai's famous slum. Oprah wanted to 'experience' both the highs and lows of living in 'real' India, reports Hindustan Times. http://www.hindustantimes.com/Entertainment/Tabloid/Oprah-spends-a-day-in-10x10-Mumbai-kholi/Article1-874291.aspx

She spent a day interacting with a family of five members in a slum in Mumbai who live in a 10x10 room on a paltry salary. The Hegde family lives in a slum in South Mumbai's posh area, Colaba.

The queen of chat show was shooting for her new show. She was accompanied by the Australian author Gregory David Roberts, who wrote the bestseller 'Shantaram'.
