Father offers to sell child star of Slumlord Millionaire?

A The father of Rubina Ali, child star of Slumdog Millionaire, allegedly put his daughter up for sale, offering to allow her to be adopted for about £200,000.  Dad Rafiq Qureshi, who lives in one of Mumbai's worst slums and says his daughter made nothing out of the hit film, which won 8 Academy Awards, allegedly offered her to a man he thought was a sheikh from Dubai.

Qureshi and Ali have denied that claim, saying that they understood the transaction as an offer of employment for the child actress.
