Pakistani actor Veena Malik’s nude photo shoot on the cover of the December issue of the glossy FHM, has stirred up quite a storm. The cover, which shows a naked Malik sporting a prominent ‘ISI’ tattoo on her arm became the most trending topic on Twitter yesterday. The 27-year-old actor is now
facing harsh criticism back home.
Khuwaja Sara, a Pakistan-based group, protested against the actor and also filed a case against her at the Lahore court. “A disgusting & shameful act by Veena Malik, she should be banned in pakistan for life time,” tweeted Fatima Shuja from Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
When contacted, however, Malik denied going commando for the cover. “It came to me as a big shock and I am really upset. The
photo is morphed! I never shot the picture like this, I got it clicked with some clothes on. My lawyer is looking into the matter and we plan to take legal action against the magazine for ruining my image,” she said.
Malik added that the photo will severely hamper her reputation ahead of her reality TV show Veena Ka Vivah where she will hunt for a groom on television.
Despite Malik’s threat of legal action, the magazine maintains that the shoot has not been doctored.
“We have video footage of the shoot as well as emails from Veena about how she’s looking forward to the cover,” says Kabeer Sharma, editor FHM.
On Saturday, the magazine released yet another topless picture of the actor.
Her colleagues in the TV industry also expressed shocked at the risque shoot. “Completely mad woman. Le ab bolo tameez ki bat karti hai yeh aurat… lanat hai,” wrote Bigg Boss ex-inmate, Dolly Bindra, on Facebook.
