Rubina finds Kidman strange

MUMBAI: Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali found Hollywood beauty Nicole Kidman strange. The nine-year-old recently filmed a French commercial for Schweppes beverages with the Australia star at Lake Palace in India. The advert helmed by Ridley Scott shows Rubina as a child captivated with Kidman’s Indian princess character.

Now, in her autobiography, Slumgirl Dreaming: Journey to the Stars, the little child shares her experience of working with the big actress. She writes, “I really liked her, but she was very quiet and didn’t speak much. I think she was a bit shy.” Also, the child star confessed that the Australian beauty seemed ‘strange’ to her, the New York Daily reports. The book further reveals that Kidman stayed in her trailer during the entire shoot, scared that the sun would damage her fair complexion.
