Slumdog fame stars Rubina and others to star in British film

MUMBAI: Rubina Ali, the child who played the young Latika in Dany Boyle?s ?Slumdog Millionaire?, is being considered for a small budget British film ? ?Lord Owen?s Lady" - that will also have Anthony Hopkins in a major role.

Expected to earn 1000 pounds sterling a day, she stands to earn around 21,000 pounds (around Rs 1.6 million) for the assignment.

The romantic comedy set to be filmed in India, England and Wales, is about a young Welsh nobleman who falls in love with an Indian girl. Former rugby player Gavin Henson is all set to make his acting debut with the film.

Ali confirmed this and said: ?I have a new film and I will be traveling to England and Wales later this year. I am so excited because I think this is going to be my best year. I want to go and meet Danny uncle at his home and talk to him again.?

Before I met him, I was living in a slum and now look at what my life has become - he visits us regularly in Bombay and now I want to visit him in his home. The only other person I really want to meet in England is the Queen - I want to see Buckingham Palace. I have always wanted to meet a real queen,? she added.

The film also features Ali?s Slumdog co-star Azharuddin Ismail. The 13-year-old actress said one of the best things about filming in England will be the chance to meet her Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle again.
