Indian Police Investigate 'Slumdog' Child-Selling Case
The estranged mom of Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali, 9, has filed a complaint with Mumbai police after a British tabloid alleged that the girl's father tried to sell Rubina to an reporter posing as an Arab sheik. The British paper says the father negotiated for $400,000 for the girl, who played the same character as Frieda Pinto (pictured) as a child. The lives of the slum children in the movie, which has grossed $300 million, have been thrown into turmoil by their sudden fame. Indian police briefly questioned the dad on Monday but no charges have been filed. (Photo: WENN)
