    Father tried to sell 'Slumdog Millionaire' girl

    The father of "Slumdog Millionaire" child actress Rubina Ali tried to sell his nine-year-old daughter for adoption in a bid to escape the Mumbai slums, a British newspaper said Sunday.
    News of the World alleged that Rafiq Qureshi wanted 20 million rupees (400,000 dollars, 310,000 euros) for the girl, who played the young Latika in the British hit film set in India.
    News of the World said its reporters posed as a wealthy family from Dubai, employing its regular "fake sheikh" sting tactic.

    The weekly tabloid said a Mumbai informant told them that Qureshi was touting for the highest offer, having already been approached by a Middle Eastern family.

    The newspaper published pictures of the actress, her father and uncle posing with their undercover reporter, plus video clips of Qureshi and his brother-in-law during their meeting last week.

    "Yes, we are considering Rubina's future," Qureshi was quoted as saying.

    He put the reporter in touch with his brother-in-law Rajan More.

    "We are interested in securing our girl's future," the star's uncle was quoted as saying.

    "If you wanted to adopt we could discuss this, but her parents would also expect some proper compensation in return.

    "Whatever money is agreed by Rajan, I will accept.

    "We can discuss everything about this deal when we meet. There's a lot of interest in Rubina."

    Qureshi, Ali, More and some other relatives met the British reporters in a Mumbai hotel, the newspaper said.

    "We need two or three months," Qureshi allegedly said. More added: "Until then we can negotiate the amount. We'll come to Dubai, the girl will come and go."

    "It's 20 million rupees," the uncle was quoted as saying.

    "This discussion will not go beyond the three of us."

    Qureshi proudly carried Ali through the Mumbai slums in February after she returned from the Oscar glory of Hollywood.

    LONDON 19 April - Bapa kepada pelakon kanak-kanak filem Slumdog Millionaire,
    Rubina Ali cuba menjual anaknya yang berusia sembilan tahun itu sebagai
    anak angkat bagi membebaskan kanak-kanak tersebut daripada kehidupan
    sesak di Mumbai, lapor sebuah akhbar Britain, hari ini.

    Menurut akhbar News of the World, bapanya, Rafiq Qureshi mahukan sejumlah AS$400,000 (RM1.4 juta).
    Rubina melakonkan watak Latika semasa kecil dalam filem popular itu.
    Menurut akhbar News of the World, beberapa wartawannya telah
    menyamar sebagai sebuah keluarga kaya dari Mumbai bagi menipu Qureshi
    dalam urusan mengambil Rubina sebagai anak angkat.

    Akhbar tabloid mingguan itu memberitahu, seorang pemberi maklumat di
    Mumbai memaklumkan mereka, Qureshi mencari pelanggan yang menawarkan
    harga tertinggi dan dia juga telah didatangi sebuah keluarga dari Asia
    Barat.

    Akhbar tersebut turut menyiarkan gambar Rubina, bapanya dan seorang pak cik saudaranya di samping wartawan News of the World yang menyamar, termasuk klip video Qureshi dan abang iparnya semasa satu pertemuan dengan wartawan itu minggu lalu.
    ''Ya, kami sedang menimbangkan masa depan Rubina,'' kata Qureshi yang dipetik akhbar tersebut.
    Abang iparnya, Rajan More turut berhubung dengan wartawan tersebut.
    ''Kami mementingkan jaminan masa depan Rubina. Jika anda mahu
    mengambilnya sebagai anak angkat, kita boleh berbincang tetapi ibu
    bapanya mengharapkan wang pampasan yang wajar sebagai balasan,'' kata
    More.

    Bapanya dalam pertemuan itu membalas; ''Saya akan terima apa juga
    jumlah wang yang dipersetujui More. Kita boleh berbincang lanjut
    tentang perkara ini apabila kita berjumpa. Rubina turut berminat.''

    Menurut akhbar tersebut, Qureshi, More dan Rubina bertemu dengan wartawan yang menyamar di sebuah hotel.
    ''Kami perlukan masa dua atau tiga bulan,'' tambah Qureshi.
    ''Sehingga itu, kita masih boleh bincangkan harganya. Kami akan
    datang ke Dubai, Rubina juga boleh berulang alik. Jumlahnya ialah
    AS$400,000 (RM1.4 juta). Perbincangan ini juga hanya akan melibatkan
    kita bertiga,'' kata pak cik kanak-kanak itu. - AFP
