THE poverty-stricken father of Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali plans to become a millionaire himself-by SELLING his nine-year-old daughter.

In a bid to escape India's real-life slums, Rafiq Qureshi put angel-faced darling of the Oscars Rubina up for adoption, demanding millions of rupees worth £200,000.

As he offered the shocking deal to the News of the World's undercover fake sheik this week, Rafiq declared: "I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future."

Rafiq tried to blame Hollywood bosses for forcing him to put his daughter up for SALE

By the way, £200,000 equals nearly $300,000 in the US.  Rafiq goes onto say the creators of Slumdog Millionaire didn't give him or his family a dime.  This is terrible, if the economy gets worse over here Mathew Knowles might need to put Solange up for sale!
