Slumdog star Rubina Ali shoots Schweppes ad with Nicole KidmanMay 7th, 2009 - 3:23 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, May 07 (ANI): Rubina Ali Qureshi, the child star of Slumdog Millionaire, has shot an advertisement with Aussie actress Nicole Kidman.
The advertisement, for a soft drinks company Schweppes, was produced by American Gangster director Ridley Scott and directed by Shekhar Kapur in Udaipur recently.
It also features Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Qureshi, nine, was plucked from the slums of Mumbai to star as Latika in Danny Boyle’s Oscar-winning movie.
Previously, a British newspaper had reported that Rubina’s father Rafiq Qureshi tried to sell her for adoption to a family from Middle East for nearly 200,000 pounds to escape the Mumbai slums.
However, Rafiq has denied media reports that he put his daughter ever on sale.
While talking to reporters in Mumbai, Rafiq claimed that all this was nothing but a trap laid out for him. (ANI)
