Pakistani actor Veena Malik snubbed rumours alleging that she assaulted co-actor, Vedita Pratap Singh, during the shooting of Mumbai 125k. “Who is this girl and why should I be insecure of her? She (Vedita) just wants to get cheap publicity at my cost. Every third person wants to be associated with me just to garner publicity,” Malik said over the phone from Dubai, according to timesofindia.com

The website also quotes the actor as saying, “It is a concocted story, I am in Dubai since the last 30 days. So, how can I manhandle or hurt her. The incident, which she claims to be real, is actually a reel shot and the injuries seen on her forehead were made up for the shot.”

Director of the film Hemant Madhukar verified Malik’s stand and said, “I am not aware of any such incident on the set of my film. Since December 24, Veena has not shot a single scene for us. I don’t know what Vedita is talking about.”

Earlier, Singh had said that Malik had deliberately hurt her while filming the sequence for the horror thriller film. “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.”

However in the recent course of events, Vedita has not replied to any of the statements made by Malik and Madhukar.

    A dose of Veena Malik every now and then is good for the constitution. Surprisingly this time around she makes sense.

    The title refers to ‘famous faces fighting it out’. No-one in India knows who Vedita is let alone anyone in Pakistan where this newsitem is published. So clearly she is not famous.

    Veena is definitely known but I think most people would describe her as being infamous i.e. in limelight due to negative publicity rather than famous due to any accomplishment of hers.

    So I think neither of the protagonists in this story qualify for the tag ‘famous’.

    I initially thought this referred to Shah Rukh Khan’s violence aainst Farah Khan’s husband Shirish Kunder.

    @Lubna Latif:
    You think what veena did gives you strength to fight male dominant society? I am disappointed in knowing that it gave you strength that she is bold by doing what she did. Its a curse! We can remove male domination by increasing literacy rate in our country NOT by exposure by such cheap artists! Look at respectable female artists who have much much more fame and respect and are shining in this male dominant societ e.g. Bushra Ansari. So dont be emotional when you are tend to express, I do understand your feelings and respect them but do not abuse it by personifying what Veena did as a source of courage for yourself!

    @SaQiB I think YOU just made @Lubna Latif’s point by a simple sentence...”where this stupid feminism talk..” by considering any conversation on feminism as being STUPID? you clear oppose feminism as you further demean women demeaning it as …” to that dumb feminism topic……… please refrain from trying to make a point you seem to do a good job of not doing !

    @MA may I respectfully ask you what gives you the qualification to judge Veena Malik, Another male might think of females like Bushra Ansari as a cheap artist so again we are talking about MALES creating standards of decency. IN America men in politics want to remove the choice of women who want an abortion and if you agree or disagree on abortion don’t you think that is a women choice no matter what religion she belongs to but even in America where women’s rights are more advanced MEN are still trying to legislate what is acceptable and in Pakistan there is no difference MEN again are trying to set the standards of decency and this leads us all to a very slippery slope of trying to control of men by women,
    As your weak reason that male domination can be removed by increasing literacy rate in our country when it is the educated males that are the cheer leaders in keeping Pakistani women down and a strong women is labelled a a feminist and any conversion is deemed stupid & dumb!

    @Luban Latif:
    Editor didnt post my previous comment, hence I cannot write the whole story again. HOWEVER you are still defending a lady whose images I am sure you must not have seen else you would never try to defend! Second if you go and see her history of beautiful events you will further not involve her in your discussion because it will bring only shame to a justfying argument that you are trying to make. I do agree with your point of view only in its principle but NOT with the logic and explanation.
