'Slumdog' Brawl -- One Mother of a Fight

4/21/2009 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mother and step mother of Rubina Ali -- the little girl featured in "Slumdog Millionaire" -- went toe-to-toe yesterday in the streets of Mumbai, amid reports Rubina's father was angling to cash in by selling the child.

The choke-fest between the two women occurred after Rubina's father -- Rafiq Qureshi -- reportedly tried to squeeze around $400,000 from a reporter for Britain's News of the World, who was posing as a baby buyer.

Rubiq claims he was framed.

Glad the mother tried to give the step-mother a beat-down. I hope the real mother gets custody. India should step in and get those children outh of that freaking slum area. Everyone has exploited those kids, and benifted from the Oscar win for Slum Dog Millionaire.

It's a sad 'way of life' over there, especially if you're a female: Be it a
baby, child or woman. Ever hear of Female Infanticide? Look it up!

That's one Hell of society over there... they really have it together... I'm sure glad so many of them are immigrating to our country where they can set up shop and help our society grow and flourish... my gawd.

I find it funny that the biological mother now wants to fight for her daughter when she abandoned her as a baby. I bet she's angry that they didn't include her in the deal.

that is the reality of the slums when there is an over population and limited resources and the flow of money is restricted. It's much easier to judge from the outside but I don't believe these people chose to live in the slums while others are living in mansions and have servents. You can find these sorts of parents trying to sell kids everywhere from america to europe to asia and beyond. I just hope the publicity of all this promotes change.

WHAT'S the big deal?

Here in America we sell are young daughters daily, on many different levels.
Americans sell their daughters, maybe not as literally as they may in other countries,
but we sell them none the less....ARTOFWAR.
