'Slumdog Millionaire': Dad did not try to sell actress daughter

Posted on

Police in Mumbai, India, have concluded that Rafiq Qureshi did not attempt to sell his young daughter, Slumdog Millionaire actress Rubina Ali. “So far there is no evidence of any offense, hence there is no registration of complaint and no arrest,” Nisar Tamboli, a senior police officer, informed Reuters.

Qureshi, 36, had previously told People that a British newspaper story that he was prepared to place his 9-year-old up for adoption for $300,000 was a “lie made up by foreign journalists playing games with me.”
