Rubina Ali, the kid actor in Danny Boyle’s Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, has dropped her dad Rafiq Qureshi into tuberculosis. He died on Thursday (January 30), following a protracted battle with the disorder, reports Mid-Day.
She had been eight years old when she looked like the younger version of Latika (played with Freida Pinto) at Slumdog Millionaire.
Filmmaker Danny Boyle shaped the Jai Ho Trust, to ensure Rubina along with her co-star Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, plus a slum-dweller could have access to a fantastic education. She got a flat in Bandra, as a result of the trust.
Within an interview with Mirror this past year, Rubina reported that she had been thankful for the filmmaker’s support. “Uncle Danny was fantastic. He’s encouraged me. He paid for my schooling and came to see me each year. I would go to see him at his hotel and he would ask me about my entire life. He’s helped me a whole lot,” she explained.
Rubina, who’s presently a student, wants to become a Bollywood star. “It is my dream to become an actor and I would like to make it appear true. I know my family is quite proud of me,” she explained.
“I enjoy both Hollywood and Bollywood, but I do not need to live abroad. I would like to remain in Mumbai so that I suppose Bollywood will be my future. Should I become an effective actor as an adult, I know to be cautious with individuals. I am ready for the popularity now. As soon as you get focus, folks look out of nowhere,” she added.
Slumdog Millionaire, that published in 2008, was critical in addition to commercial success.
