    Brit star Sienna Miller was shocked at the extent of poverty in India, during her recent visit as an ambassador for the environment group Global Cool. The 25-year-old who is set to do her bit on spreading environmental awareness revealed that she was 'shell-shocked' to see the Bandra Kurla slum in Mumbai.

    "I'm feeling a bit shell-shocked. It was unbelievable to see poverty on that scale, especially as it was combined with such a sense of togetherness. There were all these children running around, giving us hugs and asking our names," Timesonline quoted Miller, as saying.

    The actress insisted that she felt 'sick' sitting in the luxurious Taj Lands End hotel knowing the condition of the people suffering in the slums.

    "What's scary is that the river flooded two years ago and if it floods again the entire slum will be submerged. God forbid, because the water is ridden with disease and filth. Now I'm back here in the hotel with the air-conditioning and the elevators and the room service, I'm feeling completely sick," she said.
