Controversial Pakistani actress Veena Malik has come out in support of homosexuals.
"I am openly supporting the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community and I don`t feel shy about doing it. If American President Barak Obama and Hollywood beauties can stand up for the gay marriage, so why not every country`s citizen should support this cause?" Veena said in a statement.
Pakistani actor Veena Malik is gearing up for the release of her first Bollywood film Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai. "I am doing five-six female-centric films but at the same time I am doing item numbers. I did Channo, one in Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and very soon I'll do another," she says.
When asked Veena if it is a perfect launch pad for her, she said: "I am happy that without becoming part of a group and without the support of a man, I am making a place for myself in Bollywood. It's just the beginning, my producers are showing faith in me. I think it's a great achievement that a girl is being offered female-centric roles."
The actor has also signed the Telugu version of the Bollywood hit The Dirty Picture and will also feature in Hindi movies Mumbai 125 km and Zindagi 50-50.
