London: Pakistani actress Veena Malik has revealed that she has been signed for a “powerful” role in a British film.
“I am getting many offers from across the globe. Recently, a UK film team was in Dubai and I was shortlisting a few offers that would suit me. I have zeroed in on a few fashion projects and a film,” the Mirror quoted her as telling a newspaper.
She added that she couldn’t “reveal more at the moment”.
The actress has always been at the centre of a controversy, with the latest being a co-actress accusing Malik of assaulting her in a fight scene for ‘Mumbai 125 Kilometres’.
Malik faced an even bigger storm last year when ostensibly nude photos of her appeared on the cover of the Indian edition of FHM magazine. She also had the letters ISI stencilled on her arm, representing Pakistan’s powerful spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency.
The pictures caused a huge uproar in Malik’s home country with her reportedly receiving death threats, and her father saying that he had disowned her.
Although the magazine claimed that the photos were genuine, the actress said that they had airbrushed off the thong she was wearing when the pictures were shot.
