I love Craigslist. You can go on anytime of day and find just about anything for sale, easily available for local pickup, or delivery. But imagine seeing this ad in Craigslist’ India:
For Sale: 9-year-old star of Oscar winning film – $1,000,000
9-year-old girl for sale by owner (Father). She is cute and was in the Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire. Oscars Rubina played Latika in the movie. The young cute one, not the old one. She has been taught to sing, but still has her eyes. She is wrapped up and ready to go. Can deliver locally.
That’s right, Oscar Rubina, the young girl who played the young Latika is for sale by her father. The story came out of the UK and is pretty sick.
The father offered up a reporter, who was undercover as a sheik, the young star for enough money to make him a Slumdog Millionaire, without all those pesky questions. You can check out more on the story here.
