Veena Malik: Singing my ultimate dream
New Delhi: Controversy`s favourite child, Pakistani actress Veena Malik reveals that her heart craves to croon and that her dream has been to become a singer and not an actor.
"I think, Bollywood is beautiful, but my ultimate dream is not to become a Bollwood star. My ultimate dream is to become a singer. I always wanted to become a singer, but because of my looks I was always suggested to act," Veena told IANS.
"Ever since my childhood, I have imagined myself standing in front of thousands of people and singing. I never dreamt of becoming a Bollywood star. I am happy, and acting is something I enjoy but my ultimate dream is to become a singer," she added.
Currently Veena is busy promoting her first Hindi movie ‘Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai’, which will see her in a double role.
The actress shot to fame in India with her stint on reality show "Bigg Boss 4" and her romantic escapades with Bollywood actor Ashmit Patel spiced it up.
Talking about the popularity of reality shows on television, Veena said: "People love spice in reality shows. There are certain aspects in a reality show that I also like, like `Swayamvar`. I think media shows what people want to see."
Veena was roped in for the reality show `Veena Ka Swayamvar`, but the reality show didn`t happen because the Imagine decided to shut down its operations.
Would she be part of any dance or comedy show?
"I personally don`t like dance shows. I said no to dance shows, I said no to comedy shows because when it comes to comedy, I would like to only do the films," she said.
Directed by Anand Balraj, "Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai" releases June 29.
