Veena Malik cannot shoot in India, says CINTAA
Pakistanis actress Veena Malik has found herself in yet another controversy as the Cine And TV Artists Association (CINTAA) raises its voice against her earning a living in India while being in the country on a business visa.
In the reference sent against Veena Malik and her alleged illegal shooting for the film ‘Swayamvar’ in Agra, the chairperson of CINTAA Raza Murad has quoted that, “She [Veena] is here on a business visa, which means she cannot earn a living in India.”
The 32-year-old actress has denied the allegations and defended her participation in shooting in Agra, saying, “Whenever I come to India, I make sure I go to the high commission and get the visa papers in order. My passport says that I am an actress and
come to India only for work. Also, my visa states that I can make a commercial presence anywhere, hence I can earn a living in India. As for the visit to Agra, when I move from one city to the other, I make sure I inform the cops. And like everybody else,
I pay taxes too,”
Veena Malik is renowned for landing herself in the public eye for all the wrong reasons. A couple of years ago, the actress was making newspaper headlines because of her affair with the ex-Pakistani cricket Muhammad Asif. As the two broke up, they got involved
in a controversy regarding Rs 2 crore that, according to Veena Malik, her ex-boyfriend had borrowed from her and was now refusing to return.
After the Muhammad Asif controversy died down, Veena Malik found herself enraging the Pakistani community with her vulgar behaviour in the fourth season of Colours TV reality show Bigg Boss. She acted in an extremely desperate manner throughout the entirety
of the show, wearing indecent clothes and indulging in immoral acts with the struggling Indian actor Ashmit Patel.
Veena Malik was expecting film offers after her stay in the Bigg Boss house, but things not go the way she had planned. Instead, she is still struggling to find her place in Bollywood and is getting nothing better than a 5 minute screen time in films as
an item girl.
‘Swayamvar’ and ‘Daal Mein Kuch Kala Hai’ are the first two projects that Veena Malik has landed after her year-long struggle. Both of these films are low budget and not expected to attract a huge crowd.
