To say that Pakistani siren Veena Malik has made it big in Bollywood, would be an understatement. The actor who is being swamped with offers one after the other, says that even though she is a public figure, her personal life and the people in it are not to be discussed with the media. Malik adds that she is in a relationship but she does not want to divulge any details because the last time she did that, her “life was in a mess”, according to a Times Of India report.
Much to her dismay, her infamous love life has been fodder for tabloids for too long. However, this time around Malik says she is not taking any chances with her love life. “My personal life was chaotic and kind of a mess. But now it’s completely settled. There is someone who takes care of me but this time I’d like to keep it a hush-hush thing. I’m the kind of person who can’t live alone. I am such a spoilt brat I need somebody to take care of me all the time. I was single for five to six months for the first time in my life when ‘Swayamvar’ was happening. For me, staying single for such a long time is impossible,” she says.
Malik was supposed to marry, or at least get engaged, on the fourth season of “Swayamvar” but the channel shut down. However, she remains hopeful because, “The makers are in talks and are negotiating with various channels. It may happen.”
Malik is not concerned about the shelving of her TV show as she is extremely excited about her upcoming film which is the Kannada version of Vidya Balan starrer The Dirty Picture. The promo of the film has tried to recreate the magic created by Marilyn Monroe in her movie The Seven Year Itch, in which Monroe tries to stop her dress from billowing in the air. Malik, who is seen wearing a rather gawky blonde wig and a not-so-impressive red dress, will stand ape that oomphy pose.
