High thrilled and happy Veena said, “I’m more than happy today, I think I’m the happiest girl in the world,” Veena Malik briefly spoke to Geo News outside the court, claiming that this is an arranged marriage. “Destiny just plays its part, we were destined to be there on this particular day,” she said.

"Like her wedding, even her reception will be a private affair for her close friends and relatives. It will take place today evening in Dubai," a source close to the actress said Thursday.

Veena Malik Mohammad Aslam, told, "It is an arranged marriage. I know Asad's father well. We all spoke about it and Veena accepted the proposal about a month ago. Once the court formalities are done, we will have a small family function and in a few months, we'll have a reception."

Before getting married to Asad, Veena was in a love relationship with few others but her father was not in favour of her boyfriends and wanted Veena to settle down with the man of his choice. "I am very happy with the marriage. I told her that if she wanted my blessings, then Asad was the right man for her. She must have felt that I was right; that's why she gave her consent," said Veena's father, who also told her that he did not "object to her working in showbiz", but he wanted her to get married first. "It was the right time. We are a traditional family and want our daughters to live a settled life," he added.

Veena in the past dated Ashmir Patel, Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif and a Norway based businessman named Shaikh Umar Farukh Zahoor but finally settled down with Asad Bashir Khan Khattak.
According to the source, the newly-wed couple is also likely to soon go to perform Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
