KOLKATA: Fielding questions about her raunchy MMS video that went viral, Pakistani model-turned-actress Veena Malik Wednesday clarified that the clipping in question was a scene from her forthcoming Bollywood film "Zindagi 50-50."
"It's a footage of one of the songs of the film that shows me and (actor) Rajan Verma... It is not an MMS clip, it's a clipping from the movie Zindagi 50-50," Malik told reporters during a media conference.
"Zindagi 50-50" is slated for a May 24 release.
The video that gathered millions of hits on social networking sites shows the actress in a compromising position with co-actor Verma.
"Its a beautiful scene... Beautiful intimate song sung by Rekha Bharadwaj. We are not romancing... It's an intimate scene between the characters Madhuri (enacted by Malik) and Birju (played by Verma)," Malik told reporters.
Having done a spate of films in Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi, following her debut in the Pakistani film "Tere Pyar Mein" in 2000, Malik became a household name post her appearance in Indian television reality show "Bigg Boss Season 4" in October 2010.
Since then, Malik has been in the spotlight for some controversy or the other.
"The relationship is such that even if I leave the controversies aside, they don't desert me. Wherever I go, controversies follow me... I dont want to talk about controversies," Malik said.
