‘Slumdog…’ kid Rubina gets TV commercial with Nicole KidmanMarch 30th, 2009 - 10:07 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 30 (IANS) After drawing acclaim for the multiple Oscar winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” and sashaying down the ramp in designer clothes, child actor Rubina Ali Qureshi has shot for a TV commercial with Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman.
The nine-year-old was plucked from the slums of Mumbai to star in the Danny Boyle movie, and her father hopes that her rising profile could lead to a better life for the family, reports contactmusic.com.
“We are very proud of her and hope she continues to become a big star. Maybe then, we will be able to live in a proper house. She was paid more for the ad than the movie,” said Rubina’s father Rafiq Ali.
The advertisement, for a soft drinks company, was produced by “American Gangster” director Ridley Scott and directed by Shekhar Kapur in Udaipur recently. Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal also stars in the commercial.
