Child artist Rubina Ali, who had essayed the role of Latika in Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire, has signed a British film. According to her father Rafiq Qureshi, she will get 21,000 pounds for acting in the movie, which will also have Hollywood veteran Anthony Hopkins in it.
In a chat with PTI, Rubina's dad Rafiq Qureshi said, “In a few months, she would begin shooting for her role. We don't know much about her role in the film. But we are all happy.” He added, "We have been told that she would get 1,000 pounds a day for her shooting schedule of 21 days. This comes up to 21,000 pounds.”
Rubina moved from a shanty in Garib Nagar area, a slum area in Bandra (East) to a flat in Bandra (West). Talking about the new project, Rubina said, "I am very much happy about this project. I don't know about the role. We would start shooting in some time." Her manager Dinesh Dubey said, "She would start shooting in September. The shooting would first begin in Simla and then in London."
However, neither Rubina nor her father are aware about the name of the movie, its director or producer. Dinesh Dubey said, "Rubina does not know much about the movie and her role. She had signed the film one-and-half years back. So there are chances of some changes in her role. The film is titled 'Lord Owen's Lady' and the producer-director is Martin Pennell.”
