Pakistani actor Veena Mallik, who is currently busy with her Bollywood films, says that she plans to join politics and fulfil her father’s dream.

“I have intentions to join politics, but right now, I feel I am very immature. When I feel it’s the right time, I shall join politics,” she says. “My father always wanted me to be in Pakistan and join politics. I will certainty fulfil his dream as his daughter,” she adds.

The actor says her father wants her to be in Pakistan and wants her to always wear a salwar suit. “My father wanted me to be a lawyer and be in Pakistan. As I was associated with Pakistan news channels, he understood that I have my personal views and vision and can be a politician,” says Veena. “He likes me in salwar kurta and always wants to see me in them. Whenever I am with him, I try to wear a salwar kameez with a duppata,” she adds.

She is also gearing up for her film, Zindagi 50:50, releasing on May 24. “I am excited that this is my first film which will release in Pakistan on the same day (as in India),” says Veena.
