“I believe in the institution of marriage. Also, I have seen my family members enjoying a blissful married life. I too would love to belong to the man forever after getting married,” she had stated.
Veena, who was rumoured to have been engaged earlier in the year and had a very public relationship with fellow Big Boss participant Ashmit Patel, had said that she has had her share of breakups and has insecure feelings.
“I have had my share of break ups. It would not be too much to say that I have always ditched men. I am the one who has broken up with all my boy friends.”
Asked about when does the 29 year-old actor plans to settle down, she pointed out 2015 as the potential year when she ties the knot.
“I am keeping my fingers crossed and am all set to tie the knot sometime in 2015. Will it be a Sheikh or someone from Dubai? Well, I am not sure myself but yes I am contemplating to get married to a Muslim. I have been living in Dubai for many years now. So could be someone from Dubai,” she had said.
Veena had earlier said in an interview that she did not believe in dating. “I’ve never believed in the concept of dating.”
