Paris Hilton

Who Wants to be

... a Slumdog Hundredaire?!!?!

9/26/2011 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton made a begger's life in Mumbai a few hours ago -- stopping her SUV to hand a $100 bill to a poor woman who was carrying a baby ... and then dropping more than $2,000 in cash on other poor people in the area.

According to local Indian reports, the woman immediately began asking photogs if anyone could break it into smaller bills -- we're guessing it's not very safe to walk around the slums with that much cash.

And get this -- sources close to Paris tell TMZ ... after the $100 incident, Paris was so emotional about the poverty situation in India, she decided to give away all of the cash she was carrying on her at the time to other poor people in the area ... more than $2,000 in total.

Paris -- who's in India to launch some new Paris Hilton stores -- later tweeted about the incident .... saying, "India is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets."

is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets :(

Different Rules Apply    

She should use this time in India as her call to philanthropy...it will take more than $2K to fix anyone's life there. It would be her chance to actually make a difference other than clubbing it up as a heiress. Paris - use your celebrity and money to change their lives - it will do you a world of good.

Thats very admirable of Paris. regardless if there was cameras there or not. i just wish people would do that in the USA more often with shelters and charities.

It broke her heart to see babies sleeping in the streets of India but drives right past them not even turning her head an inch towards them, in her hometown. SMH! Tard!

Leave Pari******on alone. She and her family have done alot and given so much to charities for the poor and the sick all over the world. People just don't know about it. As a matter of fact, her great-grandfather, Conrad Hilton, who was the founder of Hilton Hotels, gave most of his money to the Catholic Church charities as will her grandfather, Barron Hilton, when he passes away. Her great-grandfather gave a lot of money to Mother Teresa in his lifetime.

She'll feel bad, then go back to Hollywood and resume whatever she does. With her family's money, they could do something good for somebody, but they won't.

Isn't it convenient somebody is always there to take pictures or catch these things on video? Amazing how that happens.

You guys are so ridiculous. Does it really bother you that much that there's pictures of this? Those people are grateful, and she helped them. You're all sitting here bitching about it. Go out and do something productive instead of sitting here and getting upset over something that really doesn't affect you at all.
