Veena Malik was on cloud nine as she has become the sponsor mother of Payal Kamble, who is seven-year-old girl living with Sahaara Charitable Society — an organisation started by a group of church members in 1994 to help trafficked women and children in India, reports sahaarasociety.org
The event was organised at Peninsula Grand Hotel in Andheri East. Malik, who was seen in two different dresses during the event, informed the media that she is extremely happy as she has done something great to serve humanity. The actor has also sponsored children in Pakistan. Malik played with kids and gave them sweets and crackers. Malik also told the media that this is the first time she is celebrating Diwali in India. According to the Malik, she lit firecrackers for the first time in her life.
During Malik’s last visit to India back in January, she informed the Indian media that she wants to be “India ki bahu”. While she was busy rehearsing for the grand finale of reality show “Bigg Boss” in January, the actor managed to reveal her fascination with Indian men.
The actor, who made headlines for her ‘close association’ with Ashmit Patel in a reality show, said, “Mujhe ab rishta chahiye. I feel Indian men are wow!”
However with her latest ‘act of philanthropy’, Malik continues to mark her territory in the world of headlines and remains popular with the media, both in India and Pakistan.
