Actor-model Veena Malik, Pakistan’s controversial export to India for
Bigg Boss 4
, will be getting together with
babe Pamela Anderson to help solve water problems in India and Pakistan.Malik confirms the news.
“Pamela is aware of what I do with the World Health Organisation in Pakistan. I’ve done a lot of work during the recent floods back home. She came with a water filter that she’s been promoting as a part of an international water conservation project and distributed them in countries that were badly hit by shortage of clean drinking water,” says Malik, who will touch base with the American actor to take the project forward.
Malik and Anderson decided on the partnership when the latter entered
for three days with the water filter that costs just Rs.50 to demonstrate how it works.“Pamela had told me that she wanted to visit Pakistan but couldn’t manage to get a visa. The filter is cheap, but lasts for more than a decade. It’s cost-effective and would suit the pockets of middle-class people in both countries,” asserts Malik, who has decided to ensure that Anderson gets to visit her country to promote her filter.
Bigg Boss 4
wrapped up last Saturday. Malik exited two weeks before, but still hasn’t returned home. “I spoke to my mother and she advised me to stay in India because the situation back home is not great. There’s been a lot of furore after I shared a few kisses with Ashmit Patel,” she rues, adding that they never actually kissed, only hugged. “I didn’t know hugging promotes obscenity. But since there are security concerns in Pakistan, I have kept my whereabouts a secret. But I want to go back soon. I’m really homesick!”
