Mumbai: While Veena may be hunting for grooms on national television, it appears that she is very much with her rumoured boyfriend, actor Ashmit Patel. Wondering why?
After stirring an uproar back home in Pakistan for posing nude in a men’s magazine, Veena went all out to deny shooting for it. The model-actress claimed that the photos were morphed and sued the magazine for a whopping Rs 10 crores. Interestingly, the legal notice that Veena sent to the magazine mentions a Bandra address which happens to be Ashmit’s house.
Speaking to a daily, a source said, "Veena has been staying in Bandra which belongs to Ashmit. It is clear that he has been a great source of support to her in every move she has made in India."
Now, Veena and Ashmit’s affection for each other is well known. The two met last year in the house of ‘Bigg Boss’. There were instant sparks between the two and at times their physical closeness on camera got to a point it became uncomfortable for Indian audiences.
The duo has maintained that they are just ‘good friends’ and not a couple ever since then. And now Veena is all set to hunt for a groom on national television, with her Swayamvar coming up next.
"Whether she really marries or not is to be seen. But in the past, Rakhi Sawant and Ratan Rajput-marriages on the show ended up only as engagements meant to be broken,” added the source.
Veena, of course, remained unavailable for comment.
