Father Tries to Sell "Slumdog Millionaire" Star

Posted: April 20th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Father Tries to Sell "Slumdog Millionaire" StarSubmit Comment
The father of "Slumdog Millionaire" actress Rubina Ali had offered to sell his 9-year-old daughter for nearly $400,000, claiming his impoverished family "got nothing" from the Oscar-winning flick.

The father was in talks with representatives for a Middle Eastern sheik, but the men turned out to be reporters working for a British paper called The News of the World.

The $400,000 is four times what the fake Arab dignitaries had originally offered. But the father and his brother insisted that the girl is worth a lot more. "The child is special now," they stated. "This is not an ordinary child. This is an Oscar child!"

The selling of his daughter actually started when a legitimate inquiry was placed by a wealthy Middle Eastern family, which wanted to adopt the young Rubina. Once her family realized that there was interest, they started looking for the highest bidder.

The father has since denied that he tried to sell his daughter: "I will never sell Rubina," he said. "All these allegations are false. It is a conspiracy to malign my reputation. The voice in the video is not mine."

"Slumdog Millionaire" didn't leave Rubina completely penniless. The producers of the film have established a trust for her and other "Slumdog" child actors, to pay for their education and housing. In addition, Rubina just shot a soft drink commercial with Nicole Kidman, earning $2,960 for a day of work.

What horrible people these reporters are. Playing a horrible prank on that poor man. All he wanted was to trade in his own flesh and blood for money.

Where are angelina and Brad now? They should put her up for auction with all the baby starved actors and actresses i'm sure he could get at least a million for her. He needs to work on his marketing a little better.

Stop posting gossip as f*cking fact you moron. At least add a f*cking question mark to stuff like this. You post stories in this manner all the time when you don't really have a f*cking clue whether it's true or not. Grow up and learn how to f*cking write.

I knocked them out when she refused the bum sex. She ended up getting it anyway, and I have 2 teeth under my pillow awaiting the Tooth Fairy (that doesn't mind the bum sex).

ill, sell your daughter. What a douchebag. "She's special now". Umm...isn't your own daughter always special?

Apparently more-so when a price tag is hanging off of her like Minnie Pearl's hat. Funny thing about this story... is that (it claims) there was never really a $75K offer for her to begin with. Then the Dad (so this story claims) runs with that figure, times it by 4 (so... 4x nothing is still...) and $300K comes up. Well, in his defense... $300K is more rare in that country than kids. You can always spawn more kids.

Hey WAIT! $300K in which currency? This little dreamboat with sultry dark eyes may be had for the price of lunch, depending on the currency!

Why would Arab Dignitaries want to adopt this child? So they can make her a muslim? Molest her? Wierd. At any rate it is nice to hear that selling children is illegal in India. To bad it is legal to buy them in what ever Arab country those dignitaries come from. From what I read, Arabs are perverts and they particularly like to molest German children.

Arabs, yuch! Have you ever noticed that they have such fewer hairs per squar inch on their scalps as Asians or Europeans. Why is it that the Koran sims to praise them and their language? DO you think it is because an Arab wrote it, in Arabic? Lame lame lame. I am going to pee on another koran.
