Wow. This report about the father of the actress who portrayed young Latika in Slumdog Millionaire, is more than disturbing: Rubina Ali’s dad was caught in a sting operation trying to sell his daughter to a sheik. It was all a ruse to expose the family’s plot to have her adopted for 200,000 pounds. They started at 50,000 but later quadrupled the amount and reportedly exclaimed “The child is special now. This is NOT an ordinary child. This is an Oscar child!” News Of The World has the full story of what went down.
