LAHORE: She claims to have supported Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif emotionally and financially during his days of hardship and Pakistan television actress Veena Malik now wants at least the money back.
Veena, who was speculated to be seeing the pace bowler until recently when he got married to another girl chosen by his family, has demanded Rs 3.4 million she claims to have given him.
“When he was banned from cricket and when no one was willing to support or help him I stood by his side and I gave him money which he said he would pay me back when things improved,” Veena said.
“Now that his situation is better he is trying to avoid meeting his commitment but I want my money back, it is my hard earned money,” Veena said. The actress warned that if Asif didn’t pay back the money she would take him to court to get what was her money.
“I will not hesitate to take him to court,” she said. She maintained that Asif had proposed to her on Valentine’s Day but she had refused as she wanted to concentrate on her career for the next two years. Asif got married to a girl from Lahore,
Hina, recently and the families have decided that the Rukhsati ceremony will take place after about six months. Asif has denied that he ever proposed to Veena or she had given him money. “She supported me a lot but this money business is not correct,” he said.
