Famous Pakistani actress Veena Malik was questioned by International Cricket Council (ICC) officials in connection with the latest match-fixing scandal involving seven Pakistan cricketers.
Veena Malik, the ex-girlfriend of tainted Pakistani pacer Md Asif, had accused several Pakistan cricketers of involvement in match-fixing.
Veena Malik ( Zahida Malik on 26 February 1978) is a Pakistani actress, model and comedian. She has established herself as one of the leading women in the Pakistani television and film industry with her abilities to mimic others and improvise.
Malik has also worked as a representative at the World Health Organisation for two years and sponsors a child at the SOS Children’s Village, an NGO based in Pakistan working with orphaned children.
She currently resides in Karachi. Early in 2008, rumours of her suffering a heart-attack were revealed to be exaggerations, and she was diagnosed instead with a mildly serious form of tachycardia. In an interview, she described her turmoil during the time of her illness. It was subsequently reported that she prepared her will, and entrusted it to her sister.
In 2009, media reports revealed that Malik has married cricketer, Mohammad Asif in a court in London, England. However, this was denied by both of them, despite pictures revealing their affection towards each other. Later, Asif got married to Sana Hilal in Lahore on 2 March 2010.
What appeared to be her nude pictures were being circulated on the Internet and became an issue of debate by the end of 2001. She repeatedly denied that she had ever appeared in any photo shoots of such kind. The controversies were short-lived and served to boost Veena’s appeal in the industry.
In August-September 2010, Malik claimed that her former boyfriend Mohammad Asif has links with bookies and handed over the evidences about Asif’s contacts with Indian bookmakers to the International Cricket Council.
After Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Mahajan and Ratan Rajput, this is the turn of Pakistani starlet Veena Malik to get married on national television, on Imagine TV's Swayamvar. Veena rose to fame in India after canoodling with actor Ashmit Patel during the fourth season of hit reality show Bigg Boss.
