Pakistani actress Veena Malik has formally announced her retirement from the commercial film industry.
Malik, who tied the knot with Dubai-based Pakistani businessman Asad Bashir Khan in December, revealed that while films have seen the last of her, she will still be part of welfare projects.
She told Pakistani daily Express Tribune that it's just that she will not be a part of any new films.

"As far as the entertainment industry is concerned, I will continue to engage in any project which aims for welfare or social development. But I will not be part of any new films from here on," she said.
"Well-wishers from all over the globe, whether east or west, India or Pakistan, have been congratulating and blessing us with their prayers." Malik, who married Dubai-based Pakistani businessman Asad Bashir Khan last year, performed Umrah with her husband and his family.
