Slumdog’s Rubina Ali, 9, to publish memoirJune 6th, 2009 - 11:42 am ICT by ANI
Washington, June 6 (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire’s nine-year-old star Rubina Ali is ready to tell her life story.
According to reports, the Mumbai resident, who played the young Latika in director Danny Boyle’s Oscar winning movie, is penning a memoir.
The book, Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars, will chronicle her story of growing up in the Mumbai slums instead of her rise to fame, reports Us magazine.
“Rubina brings alive a world of wastelands and rat-infested shanty dwellings, and shows us her home, a wooden shack with a tarpaulin roof, where she grew up with her beloved father and siblings,” said a statement released by Transworld Publishers.
The tome will be released in the UK mid July
Proceeds from the book will be donated to Ali and Medecins du Monde, a French medical aid organization. (ANI)
