Pakistani actress and model Veena Malik has reportedly gone missing from her home in Mumbai, reported Express News on Saturday.

Malik’s Manager Pratik Mehta said that she has been missing since December 16 and all her cell phones are turned off.

He said that the last time she was in contact was when she was on a film shoot in Mumbai during early hours yesterday.

The director of the film, Hemant Madurkar, said that a message was received from Malik on December 15 saying that she was “troubled.”

Speaking to Express News, Madurkar confirmed that Malik had gone missing. “I have filed a complaint in the Bandra police station,” he added.

Indian journalist Sameena Razzaq Shaikh said that Malik was last seen in a black car with some unknown people.

Malik received vast criticism from Pakistani community after recently being involved in a nude photoshoot for an Indian magazine FHM.

Earlier in an interview to BBC, Malik conceded to doing a ‘topless’ shoot, but not ‘nude’. She filed a suit against FHM India, claiming damages worth Rs100 million. FHM India has counter sued Malik for Rs250million over the controversial magazine cover that hit the stands in early December.

    For God’s sake, give the woman a BREAK! Why is everyone so obsessed with judging, analyzing, criticizing and watching her every move. She’s just a celebrity, not some kind of political leader that everyone is literally going GAGA over…and Im sure she’s not the first one to pose nude either….Why wasnt these criticism heard for Pakistani actresses going nearly nude in Pakistani movies and even in Indian movies (Meera,,,remember?)… So please, switch your priorities, focus on making yourself a better human, rather than pointing fingers at another…..

    Just let her be. She just wants to be her self but we keep dragging her by her hair all over the place. She is not a good Pakistani, yes she is, She is not a good Muslim, yes she is. She does nudes, no she doesn’t. She got overly chummy with some guy on a TV show, so what? She is just doing her own thing and we go around creating controversies in every thing she does. The media did not stop at that, they had to rope in her immediate family. “Sir, aapki beti ne India me magazine ke liye nude photos diye hain, aapko kaisa lag raha hai?” The harassed father promptly dumped her. “Kaunsi beti? Meri koi beti weti nahi hai.”
    I mean how much more can any one take? I just hope she is safe, wherever she is.

Hope she is safe, by the way I, like most other Pakistanis do not give a flying birdie to what she is doing over there, she is hardly worth this much coverage. She belongs to that particular sect(film industry) of our celebrities that hardly carry any popularity, hardly any class or character. She is just so ordinary to be given that much importance, she isnt worth it, simple!

I doubt that Indian media will blame Taliban for kidnapping? Why she is living in India, Y she not come to Pakistan? I m not agree those who say that leave her alone. The Indian friends telling me, and laughing us, is there in no one in Pakistan to accept Veena? Every body knows that when a woman can took nude photos for money so guesssssss. Pakistanis are respectable all over the world, and never bow to such act which Veena did in Inida. I love Pakistan.

    NEW DELHI: Crime in India increased by 4.9% in 2010 with relatively smaller cities like Kochi, Bhopal and Indore reporting higher crime rate – number of crimes per lakh of population – compared to biggies like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

    The capital, however, reported the highest number of ‘rape’ cases (414) followed by Mumbai (194) among 35 ‘mega’ cities in the country.
