Bollywood controversy queen Veena Malik has been spotted on the streets of Mumbai wearing a black burqa. Veena, according to a press release, wanted to avoid the mobbing crowd while searching for the perfect face for her upcoming movie, The City that Never Sleeps.

"It's a big movie for me and I don't want to take any chances, so I have decided to personally search for the perfect face," The Express Tribune quoted Veena, as saying. "In Mumbai, everyone is an actor but we need to find the hidden actors," she added. "If Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan can search for a character on the streets of Mumbai, why can't I?" said Veena. The movie is produced by Satish Reddy and directed by Haroon Rashid, and the cast will include Indian, American, and Canadian actors.

The city that never sleeps is a well-known tag-line for cities like Dubai, Mumbai, Barcelona and New York — which was currently hit by Superstorm Sandy. The cast members of the movie came together and prayed for New York in this terrible time, the paper said. "I am praying for all the people," Veena said.
