"When she grows up, I will send her to school. I don't want her to grow up on the streets. I want proper upbringing for her," said the ambitious father.

In response to a story posted on on October 19, NDTV viewers and website's users have electronically transferred more than Rs. 9 lakhs to her father's account.

The 34-year-old actress is in a long-term relationship with actor Stuart Townsend, 36. “My boyfriend is not here tonight,” she joked during the auction.
