Slumdog Millionaire's youngest actor, Rubina Ali, is in the middle of controversial allegations that her father, Rafiq Qureshi, once attempted to sell his daughter for a reported $300,000.
The allegations stem from Rubina's mother, who recently went to local authorities claiming that Qureshi, who has custody of the girl, was trying to sell Rubina.
Mr. Qureshi has countered with a vehement denial, claiming that Rubina was never for sale, nor did he try to broker a deal to that affect.
In a statement Mr. Qureshi said that he hasn't received anything from theOscar winning film, except what amounts to about $3,000 U.S. and that he has to "…consider what is best for me, my family and Rubina's future."
