Slumdog Millions

This bothers me. Doesn't the Indian government see the superficiality of their actions? Isn't the press going to question what will happen to the rest of the slum where these children were found? 

These children were cast because they were cute. They got really lucky and there is no doubt that their families need financial and medical help. But don't the thousands of others living in these slums have similar stories? 

Am I missing something here?

I read an article that said the desire for tourists to see the slums or "real" Mumbai has gone up since the movie came out.
