Veena Malik suing FHM over nude photos

Friday December 9, 2011

Pakistani actress Veena Malik is asking for a $2 million compensation from FHM India for the nude photo that appeared on the cover of their December issue.

According to her she never agreed to a naked shoot.

Although she says she was topless and covered herself up with her hands, she claims the magazine photoshopped the picture and made her appear totally naked.

FHM India editor Kabeer Sharma insists in the photo has not been tampered with. He says his magazine has video evidence of the shoot.

"I liked the idea of a bold shoot, but I did not do a nude shoot - that's why I am standing here today, because I have to prove it. I won't allow anybody to remove my bikini or my shalwar (loose trousers) or my dupatta (scarf).

"If I want to do it, I will do it myself. And if I do it, I will own it", Veena told BBC's World Have Your Say programme.

Following the controversy the photo has caused in Pakistan and India, Veena has become estranged from her muslim father.

The actress hopes for a reconciliation once the case is sorted out.
