Slumdog Star For Sale?

This is just horrible! One of the child stars from Slumdog Millionaire, Rubina Ali has reportedly been put up for sale by her father who is in desperate need of money.

Rafiq Qureshi is reportedly trying to get his girl adopted for a whopping price of 200,000 pounds.

News of the World was tipped off by the adoption news so they sent a fake sheik to cover the story where Rafiq said: "I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future."

He also said that the big bosses of Slumdog Millionaire have not kept
their promise of buying them a house and that is why he was forced to put his daughter up for sale.

"We've got nothing out of this film," he declared. "They haven't looked after us. They gave some money at the start but they gave us nothing afterwards. They gave us around 150,000 rupees (£2,040). They've been talking about giving us a house, but all they do is talk. What they showed in the film is exactly how life is here. The government doesn't help us. We get nothing. We live in one room, seven of us sleep on the floor. I earn £2 to £3 a day. I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future. We haven't got anything yet, it's all supposed to come later!"

Sad! Rafiq also revealed that he is hoping to sell his daughter to a wealthy family from Dubai.
