Pakistani starlet Veena Malik, who shifted base to India after her stint in reality show Bigg Boss's fourth season, knows her way around show business.

The actress has been in news constantly, despite having starred in only a handful of small-time films and item numbers, and it's quite clear why -- Veena Malik makes sure the cameras follow her, whether she's playing Holi or visiting a Gurudwara in Punjab.

It all started with her nude cover for FHM magazine, which she resorts to again in her new film Zindagi 50 50. Veena has apparently gone topless in the film, and has quite a few steamy scenes in it too.

We look back at some of her bizarre self-promoting antics over the years.
