Veena Malik has created a firestorm of media attention and controversy with her recent decision to leave the commercial film industry and only act in religious and social messages. Veena Malik recently married Pakistan businessman Asad Bashir Khan Khattak on December 25, 2013 and since then she has made the change from a woman who has used to be considered the "Scandal Queen" to someone who know wants to be a religious scholar and is committed to keeping her head covered.
For many in the Indian entertainment community, in particular her ex-manager and rumoured ex-lover Prashant Pratap Singh this has been hard to accept and believe. Veena Malik was considered one of the most attractive actresses/models in Bollywood and Lollywood throughout her career before she decided to get married.
In 2012 she made the list of FHM India's Top 100 sexiest women's list and created much controversy after she posed topless for the cover of the Indian version of the men's magazine, FHM India and had the initials of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Spy Agency, "ISI" written on her arm in the photograph. The controversy arose because it is alleged that that magazine indicated that she posed nude which she denied. This is just one of the many controversies that arose during Veena Malik's time as a celebrity actress in Bollywood/Lollywood.
Veena Malik was an in-demand commodity with the Bollywood film industry who was very popular because of her sex appeal. Now, in 2014 the Scandal Queen, renowned for her beauty has shocked the film industry with her decision to leave the commercial film industry and become a religious scholar.
Veena Malik has always attracted controversy with her comments and photo shoots and in 2014 she once again will be one of the focal points of Indian news as many wonder where she will be seen on television, if ever, because of her announcement that she will not work in India or Pakistan again. Is Veena Malik making the move to the United States is a question that may be answered in 2014.
