Blasphemy – Just when you thought that Veena, who is now mother to tiny tot Abram, is all settled with her husband, news came out last year that she has been sentenced to 26 years in prison. An anti-terror court in Pakistan sentenced her and husband Asad Bashir Khan Khattak for airing a programme showcasing blasphemous sentiments. According to reports, a religious song that played in the background at the ceremony was hurtful to Islam’s sentiments. Check out the video right here!
Affair with Mohammad Asif – Ms Malik’s saga of controversies started when she first revealed that her ex-flame and Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Asif was involved in match fixing. The scandal which happened during the Lorde’s test in 2010, was sensationalized further by the beauty, who stated that Asif had links with bookies in India.

Intimacy with Ashmit Patel – Bigg Boss 4 brought her a lot of popularity. She and Ashmit Patel started an affair inside the house which turned quite steamy as the show progressed. Their intimate moments were telecast in our living rooms. Naturally, this didn’t go down too well with the clerics in Pakistan after which Veena started receiving death threats and negative responses online. She, however, remained unfazed as she went on to do a movie with him later. In fact, the two shared quite a steamy lip-lock in the film.
Nude photoshoot – Veena Malik‘s nude photoshoot on a magazine led her family to disown her. While the magazine said Veena posed nude on her own, she alleged that the images were photoshopped. She also filed a court case against the magazine. In fact, some claimed that the controversy was entirely fabricated. In one picture, she posed with a bomb and ISI (Inter Services Intelligence) written on her shoulder. Well it’s safe to say these picture were “explosive”, by all means!

Anti-India tweet – One fine day an anti-India tweet appeared on her handle, but Veena accused her former Indian manager, Prashant Singh, of blackmailing her and hacking into her Twitter and her Facebook accounts. Much to our surprise, the manager, claimed that they were lovers and were living in together when the actress left him and got married to Khattak.
