Ashmit Patel's stint in Bollywood didn't do much to make him a star. However, after Bigg Boss 4, his linkup with Pakistani star Veena Malik transformed him almost overnight into a household name.
Recently, when asked about Bigg Boss and the rumours, he told a leading daily, "Link ups happen even when films are going to be released. I didn't give it much importance. The only thing I didn't like was branding Sara Khan and me as a couple. I genuinely treat her like my sister."
Ashmit Patel was linked to Pakistani actor Veena Malik on the show and their chemistry got the viewers hooked on.
"I am not dating Veena. She is a very special and important person in my life. I haven't explored my chemistry with her after the show. We have met only few times after the show," added Ashmit.
