Actor, model, item girl and the person who crossed the Line of Control to arrive at a Landmark of Controversies, Veena Malik, formally announced her retirement from the film industry on Sunday, Express News reported.

Veena, who got married to Dubai-based Pakistani businessman Asad Bashir Khan last year in December, recently finished performing Umrah with her husband and his family.

"Well-wishers from all over the globe, whether east or west, India or Pakistan, have been congratulating and blessing us with their prayers," she said.

While films have seen the last of her, Veena says she will still be part of welfare projects.

"As far as the entertainment industry is concerned, I will continue to engage in any project which aims for welfare or social development. But I will not be part of any new films from hereon.

While talking to Express News, she clarified:

"Of course, I will keep coming to Pakistan. But this time, the credit goes to my husband Asad, who brought me back from India and says we will soon visit Pakistan.

"But currently, our families are spread across US, Dubai and Pakistan. So these are the three places you will mostly find us in."
