Pakistani actor Veena Malik recently caused a traffic jam in Bangalore when she stepped out to shoot her debut Kannada film, Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga on Friday. When the beauty appeared on the sets, the gathering crowd caused a traffic jam, affecting several of the neighbouring business districts.

Although Malik’s presence was kept secret by film-makers, the masses caught a glimpse of her when she first arrived. Around 20,000 screaming fans started congregating around the area, making it impossible for security personnel to manage the crowd or control the traffic. When the solution got completely out of control, the film’s producer called in the police to handle the fans.

Despite the hoards of people surrounding her, Malik seemed to be in high spirits, enjoying all the attention coming her way. The actor, who first became famous from a stint on the Indian version of “Big Boss”, made her way around the crowd gracefully, waving to all her fans and signing autographs.

“This response is unbelievable. I am sure the movie will be a hit,” she later commented.

The film, which also stars Akshay and Anitha Bhat, is a regional remake of Milan Luthria’s blockbuster Dirty Picture released in 2011. Shooting for Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga officially began in studios last week.

This was the second time Malik has been mobbed by her fans. Before this, the actor attracted a large crowd on Fiji Beach, Australia, proving that she has a great fan following all over the world.

Her crazy fans

“I think I have been appreciated a lot. A Pakistani guy wanted to kidnap and marry me – but he was a kid back then,” Veena told The Express Tribune.  “Another Pakistani fan used to send me flowers every day. There’s a  guy on Twitter who calls himself Mr Veena Malik; I consider him a psycho, for he has hacked my Twitter and email account,” she said.

    Don’t get me wrong, Veena is an eye-candy. But thousands of grown-up Indians stopped working for hours in the middle of the day to watch the scenes being shot? Recommend

    She is useless. Doesnt she know that we are in state of war, a 4th Generation war that has been enforced on us by Nato/India/Jews. She should come back immediately and join my team.

    I have more respect for Veena than our two faced politicians. Her “kamai” is more halal compared to how our politicians and leaders make money in Pakistan. Laggi raho Veena jee!!!

    @Riaz Haq

    Here comes Mr. Riaz again with his delusional world view

    “I guess Bangloreans haven’t seen other Pakistani cover girls like Nadia Ali, Yasmeen Ghauri, Nargis Fakhri, Mahleej Sarakari and other beauties yet.”

    Nargis Fakhri is not exactly a pakistani per see,she is half paki and her mother is Czechslovakian.
    She was born in United States Of America and has an american citizenship.
