Who Wants to Buy a Slumdog Millionaire Kid?

Rubina Ali, the 9-year old who played the younger version Frieda Pinto in this year’s Best Picture, Slumdog Millionaire, can be yours for the low, low price $400,000! Don’t wait, act now! Telegraph reports:

Rafiq Qureshi, who lives in a one of India’s worst slums in the city of Mumbai, reportedly attempted to make an illegal adoption deal for the nine-year-old girl. “We are considering Rubina’s future,” Mr Qureshi is alleged to have told a man posing as a prospective buyer. “We’ve got nothing out of this film. They haven’t looked after us. They gave some money at the start, but they gave nothing afterwards. They gave us around 150,000 rupees (£2,000). “They’ve been talking about giving us a house, but all they do is talk.”

Not to sound preachy (which means I will be), but this girl’s father should be shot, brought back to life, set on fire then fed to lions. My heart may be a soulless void of hate and rage, but to reiterate, this girl is 9 and is being sold like a Happy Meal by her own father. I’m sorry you wash your clothes in a ditch , but maybe you should have thought about that, oh I don’t know, before you had a kid. And instead of claiming you want to make a better life for your child by selling her to the highest bidder, how about you not wait on someone else to do it and make it better for her yourself, you piece of shit. If I wasn’t afraid to mess up my fresh manicure, instead of money the only thing this guy would be counting would be the minutes to his next morphine drip.

UPDATE: The dad got arrested. This is in Indian, so let’s hope “arrested” is code for “beheaded”>

Looking for pictures of poor Indian kids is way too depressing, so here’s Indian actress Mallika Sherawat in a blah, blah, blah, TITS!!:

Slumdog Millionaire Parents Are Nice

The always great Sun has pictures of 10-year old Slumdog Millionaire actor, Azharuddin Mohammed, being beaten by his father today after the boy refused to be put on display outside his family’s home in the Dharavi slum in Bandra, Mumbai.

Azharuddin, who had been given a day off school, was tired after his long haul flight from LA and prolonged hero’s welcome amid a media scrum yesterday. And when he refused to be put on display outside his home this afternoon, his father lashed out, kicking and slapping him round the face. His mother cried out for him to stop, but Ismail continued to dish out the physical punishment to the child-star. Azharuddin stood up to his dad, flaring the temper of 45-year-old Ismail, who launched himself at the lad shamelessly. Azharuddin yelped out as he tried to evade the older man’s flailing hands and feet. He dashed into the tent that makes up his family home, followed by his father, where the young Slumdog star tried to cower in the corner. Azharuddin grabbed his face in pain and then ran off to cry. “Azharruddin’s father was upset that he was asking to be left alone because he was tired,” said one shocked onlooker. “He didn’t attend school today so that he could recover from his long flight from LA and simply wanted all the attention to stop. “However, when Azharuddin put his foot down and said that was it and there was to be no more talking, Ismail just flipped.”

Wow, last week this kid was walking down the red carpet for the greatest Hollywood event of the year, and today he’s getting beat public in broad daylight by his own father. That’s sad. Also sad? Spell check suggesting “thudding” for this kid’s name. Quite frankly, I found that to be offensive.
