If you thought the Slumdog backlash ended when the film picked up an Oscar for Best Picture, well, you were wrong. You see, it turns out that little Rubina Ali just shot a commercial with Nicole Kidman and Ridley Scott for an unnamed soft-drink company, one for which she was paid a handsome appearance fee. And also one that Fleet Street is now spinning as making her more money than what she was paid for Slumdog. Correct us if we've got it twisted, but isn't this a good thing? [Daily Mail]
