NRI Vanoo to sponsor Slumdog Rubina
Responding to the media reports that Slumdog Millionaire’s child actor Rubina was allegedly being sold off to a sheikh from Saudi Arabia for an exorbitant amount, an NRI businessman, A R Vanoo from Doha, Qatar, has offered to help her by paying for education and upkeep.
Vanoo says he is prepared to fund Rubina’s schooling in any part of the world, upto a master’s degree or even a doctorate, if she wishes to pursue through her academic career. He also gave her an option to her to study at an IB (International Baccalaureate) school, which costs a fortune as fees.
Vanoo visited Rubina’s home on Tuesday morning, and met her father and relatives. He spent around an hour with them.
