Pakistani actor Veena Malik was “happily engaged” when she stepped into the
house, but the recently evicted contestant from the TV show, who raised eyebrows for pretending to be “single” all along, now says that she had to call off her engagement just before starting to shoot the show. “My ex-fiance, Faisal Akbar Khan, is my father’s friend’s son.
My father had seen me go through a rough patch with Asif (Pakistani cricketer and Veena’s ex-boyfriend) and so asked me to marry Faisal. I agreed to the engagement, but later got to know that he had already got
cards printed. Since I wanted to come to the
house, I told Faisal I can’t marry him. I have met him only once for 4 hours, how could I get married to him? I don’t even know if he doesn’t snore at night.”
The actor says that she has healed from her disturbing past. ‘When I entered
, I felt shattered. But I spent a lot of time alone and rediscovered myself. Now, I am ready to fall in love again. But, no boys from Pakistan, please. I have had two bad experiences.”
Do co-contestants Ashmit Patel or Hrishaant Goswami, stand a chance, as she was close to both? “
Bahut achhi dosti hai.
But had there been anything more, I would have shouted from the rooftop,” she clarifies.
