ISLAMABAD: Pakistani model and actor Veena Malik defended on Saturday her front cover photos for men's magazine FHM, where she appeared with ISI tattooed on her arm, but denied the photo shoot involved any nudity.
"In India everything is referred to ISI (Pakistan's spy agency Inter Services Intelligence)", she told Geo TV. "Even if a very small thing happens, they say ISI is behind it. Everybody blames ISI for everything."
Malik said the original idea had been Kabeer Sharma's, editor of FHM's Indian edition, but that the photos had been "morphed".
"He told me that (the tattoo) will be very bold and will cover the upper portion of the body, which it did not.
"I agreed to a photo shoot and having an ISI tattoo in a humorous way but I did not have any nude photos. My pictures have been morphed," said Malik.
"They have the videos of the shoot but it would be in clothes and not without clothes," the actress said.
Also speaking to Geo, Sharma said Malik had been "very excited for this shoot" and the tattoo by the makeup artist had been "in very thin font, but (Malik) asked to make a bold tattoo of ISI".
