Rubina Ali is a child star in the Oscar-winning movie
Slumdog Millionaire (2008) which was directed by
Danny Boyle. After the release of this film, she became famous faces around the world along with other child actors in the same movie and attended the Academy Awards. The course of Rubina's life had completely changed after she was cast in the film. This child star was living in a slum before she was selected to act in the movie. Later, she shifted to a flat and even had the dream of a better life, but it was not everything she had dream had come true at last. She and her little co-star, Azhar Ismail, were selected by Danny Boyle to play two leading slum characters Jamal and Latika when they were just grown-up kids.
She lost her Oscar mementos and even the costumes she wore in Hollywood (Oscar Award ceremony) when a fire caught up in slums where she was staying in Mumbai. Later, of course, she was given a flat by the ‘’Jai Ho trust’’ set up by film director Danny Boyle. This star kid was just eight years old when she appeared in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ for which she won an award even. After this film, she became famous around the world when she walked in the red carpet in Academy Awards ceremony with other stars of Slumdog Millionaire’.

Nobody knows if there has been any progress in this movie at all with her in the cast. However, she acted in a Hindi movie ‘Kal Kisne Dekha’ which has Shahrukh Khan and
Juhi Chawla playing a cameo role in the film. The film released in 2009. Her upcoming Hollywood project ‘Galaxy World of Alisa’ hopefully might see the light of a day. She lives in Mumbai along with her father, step-mother and four other children. She was born on 21 January 1999 in Mumbai.
