Veena Malik gets married again
Pakistani actress Veena Malik made her childhood dream become a reality by having a fairytale white wedding and people saw her as a picture-perfect bride in a white dress at the reception on a cruise-liner off the US, attended by family and friends.
Sources say the white reception was held on February 23 on one of the world’s most luxurious cruiser, named ‘Spirit of Washington’ in the US, with more than 500 guests on board.
At the event, the couple exchanged vows and rings to mark of their pledge.
The actress married Dubai-based businessman Asad Bashir Khan Khattak, also a family friend, in a hurry in a traditional nikaah ceremony on December 25 last year.
After her wedding in the US, Veena tweeted, “My teenage dream my white wedding......!!!” She also shared pictures showing her and her husband’s wedding band on twitter.
“Ever since childhood, I have always wanted a white wedding and Assad is giving me that in the US. I feel so blessed because whatever I have wished for has happened in my life,” Veena said in an interview with tabloid! in January.
“It’s a different world for me. When you are in showbiz, you are on a run. It’s like you are part of a race and, all of a sudden, you stop somewhere. Being able to do that is the most beautiful feeling. I am enjoying that phase. I feel so calm and relaxed,” she said.
The actress is now on a long vacation. And according to a source, the couple may soon go to perform Umrah, a pilgrimage in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
The controversial Pakistani model-turned-actress is well-known for a photo shoot of ‘For Him Magazine’ India, where she appeared nude with the letters ISI (Pakistan’s intelligence agency) etched on her arm.
