Rajul Hegde in Mumbai
Controversial Pakistani actress-model Veena Malik hopes to find herself a life partner on national television through Imagine TV's reality show Swayamwar season 4, Veena Ka Vivaah

The actress gives Rajul Hegde the details, and also talks about her nude picture on FHM magazine, which has come under controversy.

You have posed nude for a magazine cover and there is a lot of hullabaloo about it.

I have never posed nude. I have never done anything like that ever. My manager and legal team is looking into the matter. We will take legal action.

'I have not been lucky in my past relationships'

Why did you decide to get married on a reality show?

I was apprehensive when I was offered this show six months ago but I discussed it with my family and they were more excited than I was.

I have not been lucky in my past relationships so my father told me to give it one more chance to find Mr Right. 

My two elder sisters got married at the age of 14 so naturally, my parents wanted me also to get married but I told them that I will marry if I come across Mr Right. 

I have watched the previous seasons and feel it's a genuine and exciting show.

'I have been paid very well for this show'

What went wrong with your past relationships?

The first one broke up because the guy wasn't loyal to me. The second one was arranged by my father. 

I am an independent girl, work and live on my terms and conditions. And this guy wanted me to shift to the US for good, so that too didn't work out.  Hope it works for me this time (smiles).

Did money play a major role in your accepting this show?

No. But, yes, I have been paid very well for this show. I am very happy with the kind of money they have paid. Money is important but it is not everything. 

I don't think I have got more than 10 marriage proposals in all these years. But on this show, I will get to meet different people from various countries and chose Mr Right, which is really an interesting concept.

'I don't mind moderate drinking and smoking in my Mr Right'

What are the qualities that you are looking for in your Mr Right?

First, I am not concerned about the nationality and the religion of the prospective groom, but he should love me unconditionally. 

Second is money because if I say money is not important, then I would be lying. Bahut gareeb insaan is a big no-no for me. And then comes good looks. No cheaters also. 

He should be romantic and have a good sense of humour. I don't mind moderate drinking and smoking but he shouldn't do drugs. 

There are several other things that I am looking for, but these come first. Also, he should smell good (smiles).

'No one has the right to tell me what I should do and whom I should marry'

Will you really get married on the show like Rahul Mahajan or just get engaged like Rakhi Sawant and Ratan Rajpoot?

I am doing this show with the intention of getting married if I come across the right person. I would not like to comment on the other contestants. 

Are you concerned about the reaction in Pakistan after doing this show?

It's an honour for a Pakistani to do a show like this. It is only a section of people who had issues in the past. Once I went there and cleared up the issues, everything was fine. 

But this Swayamvar is part of my personal life. No one has the right to tell me what I should do and whom I should marry.

Weren't you and Ashmit Patel more than just good friends during and after Bigg Boss?                  

Yes. I won't lie about Ashmit; we liked each other and we got stuck there. Today, we are good friends and I share my work related issues with him.

Will you marry him if he comes as a prospective groom?

I haven't really thought about it. Let me decide when he comes on the show.

'I pray that Mohammed Asif comes out as a changed man after his sentence'

Apparently, your former boyfriend Mohammed Asif called you before he was convicted in the match-fixing case.

Yes, he called me a few days before his conviction. He wanted to meet me but I don't see any reason to meet him because he is a closed chapter in my life. 

Also, he is married now and I don't want to hurt another woman. 

I feel that the punishment is a bit too harsh and I pray that he comes out as a changed man after his sentence.

Can you talk about the films you are doing?

I have completed four movies: Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, Dal Mein Kuch Kaala Hain, Zindagi 50-50 and finally there is Mumbai 125 KMs which is a 3D horror thriller. 
 
The films are in the post-production stage and there are two more films for which I am shooting.
