The financial feud between Pakistan pacer Mohammad Asif and actress Veena Malik has finally ended after a common friend's intervention.
The week long saga saw both Asif and Malik file counter cases against each other in the Lahore High Court over a money dispute.
Asif and Veena ended the sizzling scandal at a joint press conference that had captured the attention of the media and the people.
The two appeared at the press conference with their common friend Zahid sitting between them as their was no direct interaction between the two who also declined to answer any questions, merely insisting that their dispute was over.
"All our matters have been settled and the money issue also resolved," Veena said.
Veena has claimed that Asif owed her around Rs 13 million that she lent to him when they were close friends in 2008 and 2009.
The dispute arose soon after Asif got married to a girl of his family's choice in February.
"Asif and me have been good friends and we will remain good friends, this dispute is now resolved," Veena said.
Asif said there was some misunderstanding between the two but that has now been cleared.
"Our common friend has got us together again and we will resolve all our issues privately and in a civil manner," he said.
Asif said he was now totally focused on the World Cup and wanted to help his team do well in the mega event.
During the course of their dispute, both the celebrities hurled allegations of fraud and cheating against each other.
Asif's lawyer had claimed that the pacer was having trouble concentrating on his Twenty20 World Cup preparations because of the stress he was enduring ever since the public spat started.
