Posted on

Rubina Ali, who played the youngest Latika in Slumdog Millionaire, will be publishing a book about her life, according to the AP. Called Slumgirl Dreaming: MyJourney to the Stars, the book will be published on July 16th by Transworld Publishers and Random House Children’s Books. It will tell the story of the 9-year-old’s life in the Mumbai slum in which she has spent her life and her trip to the Oscars this year. In a statement, the publisher said: “Now she tells her own incredible story, fromplaying marbles with her friends beside the sewers of Garib Nagar inMumbai, to dancing along to the Bollywood films she and her familywatch on their old television set.” All royalties will go to Ali and the French medical-aid charity, Médecins du Monde.
