Danny Boyle set up a trust to look after the child stars
The child stars of the hit film Slumdog Millionaire are set to star in another film, possibly sharing a screen with British actor Anthony Hopkins.
Azharuddin Ismail, 10, and Rubina Ali, 9, will act in a film titled "Lord Owen's Lady".
They grew up in a slum along Mumbai city's railway tracks until they shot to fame after starring in the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire.
The children and their families recently moved to new housing.
The accommodation was arranged by the government and a trust formed by Slumdog's British director Danny Boyle.
The new film is likely to be shot in India and Wales.
Azhar and Rubina will shoot their parts in India. According to reports, Hollywood actor Anthony Hopkins is in talks with producers about taking part.
"This film has come as good news for Azhar who recently lost his father," Shamim Ismail, Azhar's mother told the BBC.
Azhar's father, Mohammed Ismail, died on 4 September 2009 from tuberculosis.
Azharuddin's father died last week
"He had expressed a wish that Azhar should act in good films," Mrs Ismail said.
The Ismails recently moved into a new house provided by a trust set up by the producers of Slumdog Millionaire.
"We have been given a new house and our condition is improving but Azhar's father did not live to see the good days," Mrs Ismail said.
Asked about the new film, Rubina said, "I will do it if my parents ask me to do it. I had a good time acting in the previous film. I would like to act in this new film also."
Her father, Rafique Qureshi, said filming had not yet begun and the family would support Rubina in every way.
