VEENA IN NEWS
Veena Malik celebrated her marriage with Asad Bashir by appearing on a popular Pakistani chat show on Geo TV. Apparently, they re-enacted the marriage on the show but the religious song playing in the background did not go down well with religious extremists. It now appears as if a court in Pakistan has sentenced Veena, her hubby, the show’s host Shaista Wahidi and channel owner Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman to 26 years in jail in addition to a fine of 1.3 million Pakistani rupees. They have been accused of committing blasphemy and propagating profanity. The four accused are already out of the country and have yet to be arrested. The Geo group had formally apologized after the scandal but protesters refused to relent. After tying the knot Veena declared that she would leave showbiz since she wanted to avoid all the controversies that seem to plague her. But this parting kick seems to be the biggest one of all!
Veena Malik seems to have an endless supply of skeletons in her closet; all popping out from time to time and helping the starlet grab the media glare. Just when we thought Veena has settled down with husband Asad Khan, a man called Prashant Singh has turned up and claims to have had a live-in relationship with Veena. He has even filed a police complaint under Section 507 (Criminal Intimidation) against the wannabe actress and says that she has threatened to accuse him of rape and molestation if he revealed their relationship to the media. Veena allegedly even called up his mother and threatened her. Veena on the other hand has a completely different story to tell. She claims Prashant is simply a staff member who enjoys taking her pictures. When asked about his accusations, Veena said, “I always treated him like a brother. He is one among my very good gay friends.” And the funny thing is that Veena is not even sure of Pratap's homosexuality. Of course calling him gay would make it easier to explain all those clingy pictures with Prashant to hubby Asad. We are not sure which way this drama will go but one thing is for certain, Veena Malik will keep entertaining us in the days to come. Related News: Veena Malik gets married in Dubai
Starlet Veena Malik has reportedly tied the knot with a businessman in Dubai. Her hubby is one Asad Bashir Khan Khattak and the couple got married in a Dubai court on Wednesday.

An ecstatic Veena tweeted on Wednesday, “I have found my Soul mate... my Friend... my Partner!” A channel aired footage of the couple exchanging rings. “Destiny just plays its part, we were destined to be there on this particular day”, said Veena before promising to divulge more details about their future plans soon. All very sweet Veena but what happened to the rich Norwegian dude you had promised to marry in 2014? Barely two months ago, Miss Malik was cosy with Shaikh Umar Faruk Zahoor as she went around shrines asking for 'duaayein' for his well being and here she is marrying another man. Given Veena's antics a lot could have gone wrong with the couple but we sure would have liked to know the juicy details. Veena Malik who shot to fame in India as a participant on Bigg Boss season 4, had a tumultuous relationship with co-contestant Ashmit Patel in the past. Previously, she had also dated controversial Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif. Given her choice in men, we hope Veena has really found her Mr. Right.

Here’s a bit of news that will have you rolling on the floor laughing…literally. Rakhi Sawant wannabe, Pakistani starlet Veena Malik, whose claim to fame is showing off not so enticing parts of her body & doing raunchy sex scenes in mostly B-grade films, recently stated in an interview that not only is she a very simple girl but that she has “limits” to what and how far she goes in a relationship. Zahida aka Veena said: “I don’t have any physical contact with the person I have a relationship with in the first one year. For me kissing a guy takes six months. I had many boyfriends, but I didn’t sleep with all of them. I don’t get into bed easily.” Veena, sweetie, please check out some of your Bigg Boss 4 footage before you go around making such absurd statements and that’s just for starters…
If glamorous and sexiness is all what we associate with model-turned-actress Veena Malik, here’s a piece of news. Veena Malik is set to be featured in a Dutch documentary titled ‘Women In Islam’.
The six-episode documentary features lives of prominent women from Islamic cultures and will be shot across Qatar, India, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt and London. The episode featuring Veena Malik will shed light on her social works as a representative of the WHO as well as her struggles during the polio awareness campaign in Pakistan. The film will also throw light on her philanthropic works in India, and her experience of being a sponsor mother to a 11-year-old kid rescued from sex-trade. This comes as quite a huge change from the otherwise bold Veena Malik. Especially considering that she has been among the few women to break religious taboos!
