NEW DELHI: Pakistani actor Veena Malik has been accused of assaulting a co-actor during the shooting of the film Mumbai 125km, Hindustan Times reported on Tuesday.
According to the HT report, Veena had been cast alongside Vedita Pratap in a fight scene where Veena was supposed to hit Pratap. However, Veena allegedly went overboard while shooting the sequence, causing deliberate harm to her co-actor.
Speaking to the tabloid, Mumbai Mirror Pratab alleged that Veena had deliberately hurt her while filming the sequence for the horror thriller flick. "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," the Indian actress said.
Following the incident, Pratab was rushed to the hospital to have her wounds tended to.
Initial attempts by The Express Tribune to contact Veena Malik for a statement regarding the incident have so far been unsuccessful.
