Pakistani actor Veena Malik, who is currently shooting for Mumbai 125km, was required to hit her co-star Vedita Pratap in a fight sequence. The Pakistani star took the scene way too seriously and smashed Vedita so badly that she had to be rushed to a hospital.
"In the scene, Veena had to pull Vedita by the neck and bang her head on an iron rod. It created a lot of commotion on the sets and director Hemant Madhukar was brought in to resolve the issue. Vedita, who was furious, told Hemant that Veena purposely hurt her," a unit member told Mumbai Mirror.
Vedita is reportedly undergoing a treatment to get rid of the scar on her forehead.
Vedita has accused Veena of deliberately hurting her. "It was an action sequence. I was supposed to be beaten up. I don't know what happened to Veena. She actually hurt me and she did it so badly that I had nail marks on my body. I don't know what was wrong with her. And then she pushed me so badly and banged my head on the rod. After the incident, I spoke to the director and told him that she is deliberately doing this. Acting is one thing, but this is just over acting," Vedita told the tabloid.
When asked if there is any enmity between them on the sets, she told the tabloid: "I don't know. I think somewhere she is just insecure or just waited for the opportunity to do something like this to me. As a result of the injury, I have marks on my forehead."
Controversies are hardly new for Veena Malik. She was lately in news for posing nude on FHM India cover.
