KARACHI: 

Pakistani model-actor Veena Malik, thought her dream of finding her prince charming would be finally fulfilled after her reality show “Veena Ka Swayamvar.” Unfortunately, the show was aborted after the channel Imagine decided to close down its operations. Veena was left puzzled.

“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,” she earlier told IANS. She added remorsefully, “I don’t think I will ever get married.”

When The Express Tribune asked her what her idea of a perfect marriage and ideal relationship is, she responded by saying, “For me marriage is a beautiful thing. I believe that you live once, you die once and you marry once.”

“From my parents to my two elder siblings who are married, I have only seen love grow. For me, marriage is all about growing old. It’s about tying the knot with your best friend,” she said.

“However, like I said before, my marriage plans have always been jinxed!” she added, clearly unhappy with her luck.

When asked if she is comfortable with the idea of living in a joint family arrangement, Veena said, “The joint family system is a beautiful thing. It’s very exciting. But I have been living on my own since I was 14 years old, so I missed the love of a joint family system. If I marry a guy whose family wants to live with me, I won’t mind people around me. It’s a beautiful idea.”

At the end Veena said that she needs to be pampered. “I don’t take care of myself. When I am in a relationship, I want others to look after me. Even at night, when I need to remove my make-up, someone has to do that for me!” she said, adding that she is spoilt.

    If I marry a guy whose family wants to live with me, I won’t mind people around me.

    Of course you won’t mind. After all, you’d be in a relationship and must be needing an army of people to “pamper” you.

    sigh
