‘Slumdog’ star Rubina Ali’s ad with Nicole Kidman surpasses film feeMarch 30th, 2009 - 11:38 am ICT by ANI
London, Mar 30(ANI): Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali is said to have been paid more than the Oscar winning film for a drinks commercial with Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman.
According to the nine-year-old slum dweller’s father, the money Rubina is receiving for doing the ad is more than the total she got for the film.
“The Slumdog Millionaire people haven’t kept all their promises despite all the media attention. We have no information about the supposed trust fund and the 21pound-a-month that they were giving for her studies has stopped coming,” the Telegraph quoted Rafiq Ali as saying.
“The money she is receiving for doing this ad is more than the total she got for Slumdog,” he added.
He hopes that Rubina’s rising profile could lead to a better life for the family.
“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,” he said. (ANI)
