Days before Pakistani actress Veena Malik is set to participate in a reality show to get married in swayamvar style, its earlier contestant, Rakhi Sawant, has thrown a bomb at her. She alleges that Veena has already been married (in Pakistan) and in fact, is living-in with her boyfriend, Ashmit Patel.
“I haven’t seen anybody more irresponsible than her. She goes into hiding like a Gaddafi saying she’s unwell. You only go into hiding if you are guilty. She is fooling the whole world. The whole industry knows that she is married and now, she is in a live-in relationship with Ashmit Patel. I haven’t heard of any man wanting to marry a married woman, and who’s living in with another man. I want to know where these contestants (grooms) are coming from,” asks Rakhi.
The reality show winner says that she has learnt from her sources that Veena got married when she was in Pakistan and there has been no word ever since about her divorce.
“You just need to see the reports that have come out in Pakistan. They mention that she got married to a Pakistani man. Regarding her live-in relationship, there is even a more solid proof with me. The legal notice that was sent to a magazine when they published her nude images (a copy of which is with DNA), the home address that was mentioned there was in fact Ashmit’s home. So, she’s not only living in with Ashmit at the moment, she has also used his address as his home address in court documents,” informs Rakhi adding, “And a woman like that is getting married on television.”
Rakhi also alleges that Veena is completely aware of the publicity stunts. “She goes missing and then calls a press conference to declare that she has been found with a press conference that reads, ‘cocktails to be served’. What is she trying to say with that? That we raise a toast because she’s been found?” rages Rakhi.
