Pakistani TV actor Veena Malik, who made it big in India after her stint on Bigg Boss 4, is reaping the benefits of fame. It’s been over a year since she exited from the reality show, and the once-girlfriend of disgraced Pakistani cricketer, Mohammad Asif, has already signed her fifth Bollywood
Titled All We Need Is Love (AWNIL), the film will go on the floors today. Says Veena, “In a short span of time, I have already completed four films. AWNIL is my fifth film, and the reason I am doing it is because of the story, which resembles my own life", who was in the news recently for lashing out at Asif, who was found guilty on match fixing charges by a London court.
Adds Veena, “All the films that I am doing are female-oriented. AWNIL is based on true instances from the film and fashion world. It’s not based on imaginations, and will reveal the dark side of both the professions.”
The male lead of the film is rumoured to be Arjan Bajwa. “My contract doesn’t allow me to disclose the lead actor’s name right now. All I can say is that there are a lot of models in it and all the names will be revealed today at the film’s mahurat.” The storyline of the film revolves around the life of a girl (played by Veena), who tastes success as a fashion designer at a very young age.
“After dating seven guys in a short span and dealing with a drug problem, my character in the film realises what true love is all about,” says the actor. The film is directed by Atul Garg and features music by Sachin Gupta. It is slated for a February release.
