She has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Be it her live show in Pakistan, her semi-nude shoot on a magazine cover or her canned swayamyar. But now, Veena Malik has something good to look forward to. According to a report in the Times of India,  Veena will be singing for the Kannada remake of The Dirty Picture.

But Veena says, "Singing is what I always wanted to do. I don't know if it will be for this movie or not. But I am working on a music album right now. And, yes I am singing for a Bollywood film in which I will act too. It is a crazy party track which I am sure people will like."

What is the difference between working in the Pakistan and Indian film industry? "There, the film industry does not have international exposure. It is a small industry. Actually, I am very happy to be part of the films here," she says. "But, I do think south filmmakers are far more professional than those in Bollywood," she adds.

A show on her marriage was cancelled, but Veena is unperturbed. "I will get married on national television. I feel TV has taken a stand to get me married! If I decide to get hitched, it will be on TV for all to see," she says. So is marriage on the cards? "Right now, I am hardly thinking about it. There are no plans or thoughts about who to marry," she answers.

Is it true that Rakesh Sawant (Rakhi Sawant's brother) approached her for a film? "It was Rakhi who had approached me for the film which is on the life of Laila Khan. I made it very clear to her that if the script is good, only then will I take up this role," she says. She further adds, "For me, choosing a film means strong roles and a good story line. In a week's time, they are giving me the script, then I will decide."
