"Slumdog" child star, 9, to publish life story

One of the child stars of the Oscar-winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire" is to publish her life story. Transworld Publishers announced on Friday that Rubina Ali's book will tell the story of her life in the shantytown where she grew up.

The filmmakers set up a trust aimed at ensuring that the children who acted in the movie get proper homes and a decent education but relations have grown tense amid disagreements over money.
