Karachi: Veena Malik, whose first Bollywood flick, ‘Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai’, released in India on Friday, has spoken about her latest movie and how it feels to work with big names in the film industry.
After gaining success with her first item song “Channo” in the film ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’, the road to stardom has just been paved for the actor.
“I am excited and happy about the release of my film ‘Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai’,” The Express Tribune quoted her as saying.
“There will be 700 prints released in India alone!” she exclaimed.
While she is currently busy shooting for her next Bollywood film, ‘The Dirty Picture’, in Bangalore, she said that she would definitely be watching it on the big screen.
“This is my first Bollywood film that will be released worldwide. Let’s see how it goes, pehli pehli baar hai (it’s my first time),” she said.
In the movie, Veena is playing a double role – one of a starlet who cons a man to get his newly acquired wealth and the other of a beautiful angel.
Earlier, Veena had expressed excitement about her double role, and said that she was confident of portraying the different characters with ease.
“Playing a double role onscreen is new for me. But in my personal life I actually play the role of two girls — one is Zahida Malik (her real name) and the other is Veena Malik,” she said.
“I am sure if I can play a double role in real life, it will be exciting to play a double role in a movie,” she added.
The actress, whose co-stars in the movie includes Jackie Shroff, Vijay Raaj, was confident that her acting skills will not be overshadowed when paired with experienced actors.
“I have worked with big names, just look at the cast of ‘Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai’ – but I am not someone who would stand in someone’s shadow,” Malik said.
Veena confessed of her desire to work with actor Ajay Devgn.
“I have a dream to work with Ajay Devgn,” she said. “The day I meet him, I am sure Kajol ko problems hongi (I am sure Kajol will have issues with our meeting),” she said.
On being asked to name which Bollywood character she thought she could have performed better, she cheekily replied Salman Khan’s role of Chulbul Pandey in ‘Dabangg’.
“I think one character I could have done better is Chulbul Panday played by Salman Khan in Dabangg. I think I would have done a better job than him (Khan),” she added.
