Slumdog Child Star For Sale? Dad Denies Report.

New Delhi: Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali's father apparently wanted become a millionaire by selling his nine-year-old daughter, a British news website reported after conducting a sting operation.

The website reports that in a bid to escape slum life, Rafiq Qureshi had put Rubina up for adoption, demanding 2,00,000 pounds.

However, Qureshi has denied the report.

“These reports are not true. I went to the hotel to shoot an ad film. I would never sell my daughter. I met a man who spoke in Arabic. I didn't understand him,” he said.

Rafiq allegedly offered the shocking deal to the undercover reporters posing as a wealthy family from Dubai.

He reportedly told the fake sheikh, "I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future."

According to the website, Rafiq tried to blame Hollywood bosses for forcing him to put his daughter up for sale.
