the real slumdog story

9-year-old Slumdog star Rubina Ali plans to write a memoir about her life (all 9 years of it!) growing up in India. Ali played an orphan in the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, and last month Mumbai authorities demolished her shantytown home in an effort to get rid of illegal slums.
The filmmakers of Slumdog responded by setting up a trust for several of the films’ child stars, including Ali, to provide them with a decent education and a place to live.

Slumgirl Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars will be published by Transworld Publishers in Britain in next month. All royalties will go to Ali and Medecins du Monde, a French medical aid organization, according to the publisher.
