Rubiana Ali Goes Big-Time

For an eight-year-old—or anybody, really—Rubiana Ali is keeping some pretty serious company these days.

Ali—who played young Latika in the Oscar-scoring movie Slumdog Millionaire, spent three days last week shooting a commercial for a carbonated water and ginger ale company at the Lake Palace in Udaipur, India.

Rubiana’s co-star in the ad? An up-and-coming actress named Nicole Kidman.

It’s also worth noting that the commercial is being produced by acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down).

Not too shabby at all for a show-biz newcomer. Hopefully she won’t let the attention go to her adorable little head and go Hollywood on everyone.
