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 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 times.”
After her stint on reality show “Bigg Boss”, “Veena Ka Swayamvar” would have been her second Indian show. Veena said 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,” Veena said.
“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’,” said the actor.
“I believe it happens in our lives. I am a very positive person.
Maybe God has planned something better for me,” said Veena who is said to be dating Hemant Madhukar, the director of the film Mumbai 125 kms in which she has been casted.
“If ‘Veena Ka 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. I don’t think I will ever get married,” she said.
