Highlight Story

Madonna and SRK's daughter have something in common with Rubina Ali. All three are precocious writers. Now, the Slumdog Millionaire’s nine-year-old star is ready to tell her life story.

According to reports, the Mumbai resident, who played the young Latika in director Danny Boyle's Oscar winning movie, is penning a memoir.

The book, Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars, will chronicle her story of growing up in the Mumbai slums instead of her rise to fame, reports Us magazine.

"Rubina brings alive a world of wastelands and rat-infested shanty dwellings, and shows us her home, a wooden shack with a tarpaulin roof, where she grew up with her beloved father and siblings," said a statement released by Transworld Publishers.

The tome will be released in the UK mid July

Proceeds from the book will be donated to Ali and Medecins du Monde, a French medical aid organization.
