Rubina Ali, Nicole Kidman to Film Beverage Commercial In India

By KJ Mullins     Apr 3, 2009 in Entertainment
Young Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali, 9, has been picked to appear with Nicole Kidman in a drink commercial. She was paid more for the three-day shot than for her appearance in the Oscar winning movie.
The young Indian star is being paid more than the Oscar winning Kidman for the drinks commercial. Her father has stated that the fee is larger than the money she made for the multiple award winning "Slumdog Millionaire." Rubina and her family still live in the slums of Mumbai.
Indian Express reports:
"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.
Slumdog execs have said that they set up a trust fund for the child stars of the movie.
Filmy Friday reports:
“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.”
The commercial took three days to shoot. Blade Runner director Ridley Scott produced the ad and directed by Shekhar Kapur .
