Nine year old child star Rubina Ali starred in this year's Oscar winner for "Best Picture", Slumdog Millionaire, but her real life dad is trying to get out of the slums himself....by offering his daughter for adoption at $200K.

News of the World reported her dad made the offer to a fake sheik they had meet with him.

"Rafiq tried to blame Hollywood bosses for forcing him to put his daughter up for SALE.
"As he tried to fix the illegal adoption deal, real-life slum dweller Rafiq declared: "We've got nothing out of this film."
"Then, almost embarrassed to speak it out loud, he whispered to an accomplice the price tag he has put on his innocent young daughter: "It's £200,000!"

"That was an astonishing FOURFOLD increase on his opening demand. But Rafiq's equally demanding brother Mohiuddin insisted: ‘The child is special now. This is NOT an ordinary child. This is an Oscar child!'"

"Shockingly, this sort of transaction is far from unusual in an impoverished nation where human life comes cheap and children are often treated as a commodity.

"Rubina won the hearts of film-lovers around the world playing young Latika in British director Danny Boyle's movie that picked up eight Oscars and a pile of other glittering awards. It tells the rags to riches story of a young man from the slums who wins the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"

Slumdog Millionaire was a huge favorite to win for "Best Picture" with double digit odds.
