Veena Malik's New Role is Dangerous: Open Letter
Veena Malik has been in the news again for all the wrong reasons
Indian columnist and journalist Subhash K Jha writes an open letter to Pakistani actress Veena Malik.
Dear Veena Malik,
Do you remember how much of a helping hand I had extended to you when during your rather embarrassing tryst with Bollywood, you were under attack from disgruntled elements in Pakistan? You used to be in tears sobbing over the phone while I’d do my best to console you.
I really thought you were a ‘misunderstood lady’.(You are actually neither).And that those pictures of you wearing nothing much more than your perfume, were all a “misunderstanding”—as you described them—and that you were actually a very simple homely girl who has been fending for her large family since she was a young teenager.

It was a marvellous plot. And I am a sucker for sob stories. However the narrative of your life kept changing with breathless brazenness. I soon gave up trying to be sympathetic. After your marriage and move to Dubai you connected with me again. The honeymoon was over and you wanted to come back to a career in Bollywood.
That , sadly, was not happening. So you quickly changed sides. Flipped the coin. If not a Bollywood actress, then an India baiter. Kya farq padta hai? A role is a role. You are now busy playing the very dangerous role of an India hater…dangerous, because I know the tension between the two nations will lift and artistes from Pakistan would be again welcome in India.
It's 20Years since selected Media is Doing Paid malicious campaigns against me Not Because I'm Actress, there are Many.. Not bcoz I'm courageous,there are many... Not Bcoz I'm Beautiful, there are many...!!!— VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 9, 2019
I Belong to Army Family!!!
And I am As lethal as A Fauji
But you won’t. You have burnt your bridges, Veena.
You were always very adept at doing that. But this time there are no second chances. Your disgusting tweets about India and Indians shows you in a very poor light.

I hope the people whom you hope to please with your terribly crass India -baiting are pleased with you. And I hope they will reward you suitably. Perhaps a ministerial portfolio?
I have the greatest respect for some of the talent out there, like the lovely Mahira Khan (whom I once conducted a beautiful interview with on the phone) and Fawad Khan (whose gracious and charming demeanour towards me changed once he felt I was of no service to his career in India) and I recently saw a fabulous Pakistani film Cake which I went ga-ga over.
We would like to see the situation at the border normalize, so we can invite talent from across the border back to work in Mumbai. But not you, Veena.We don’t want you back in India ever again.You don’t know where you belong.Your nationality is neither Pakistani nor Indian. It’s opportunism.
Best wishes to you and your ceaseless game of attention-grabbing. When will they stop? From birthday suits to burqas…what next?
