'Slumdog' star set to publish life story

ONE of the child stars of the Oscar-winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire" is to publish her life story.

Transworld Publishers said Rubina Ali's book will tell the story of her life in the shantytown where she grew up.

Danny Boyle cast nine-year-old Rubina and Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, 10, in a movie about an orphan from Mumbai's slums who wins the Indian version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."

The filmmakers set up a trust aimed at ensuring the children get proper homes, a decent education, a monthly stipend and a nest egg when they finish high school but relations with the children's families have grown tense over money disagreements.

Madeline Toy at Transworld Publishers said on Friday "Slumgirl Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars" will be published in mid-July.

She said all royalties will go to Rubina and Medecins du Monde, a medical aid group.
