MUMBAI: Pakistani model-turned-actress Veena Malik was expected to find her prince charming on Veena Ka Swayamvar, but the reality show was aborted after the Imagine channel decided to shut down its operations.
Veena says she is not upset as she knows that her marriage plans are doomed.
"You know, my wedding dates have been getting ready ever since I was 14. My dad wanted me to get married since then. My parents tried to get me settled down four times and every time I backed out," Veena told IANS.
She further added, "But when Swayamvar... happened, my abu and my friends supported me a lot. When I was ready for it (marriage), it didn't happen. I think my marriage plans are jinxed. It has been cancelled many a times."
After her stint on reality show Bigg Boss, Swayamvar... would have been her second Indian show. She was not shocked when she came to know that the show has been cancelled.
"I was not surprised when I heard that the channel had shut down, because it was not new to me. Of course, money is an important part. I lost my money, but when my manager called me and told me about it, my only reaction was, 'Ok'. I believe it happens in our lives. I am a very positive person. (May be Allah ne kuch behtar rakha hai mere liye)," said Veena who is said to be dating director Hemant Madhukar. She is working in his film Mumbai 125 kms.
However, she admits her father was upset when the show didn't happen.
"If Swayamvar... would have happened, maybe I would have even got married. When it got cancelled, my dad was very upset. Something is wrong with my wedding (kuch toh gadbad hai mere shaadi main). I don't think I will ever get married.
"I know it is a beautiful relationship to live with your partner, you grow older together but let's see when it will happen with me," she added.
Veena came to limelight after her link-up with tainted Pakistani bowler Mohammad Asif. She rose to fame in India after appearing in the fourth season of controversial reality show Bigg Boss. During her stay in the Bigg Boss house, Veena was linked to Bollywood actor Ashmit Patel.
