Khursheed Ali, the birth mother of Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali, said she will do "whatever it takes" to win custody of her daughter.
The vow comes just a week after a controversy in which Ali's father and legal custodian, Rafiq Qureshi, was implicated and subsequently cleared of accusations he sought to sell his 9-year-old daughter for $300,000 on the black market.
"I left Rafiq five years ago... but I took the children with me," the star's mother told the News Of The World. "It was poverty that forced me to let them go back to him a year later. But we stayed in touch." (Photo: WENN)
