Pakistani Actress says Intimate Scenes with Ex-boyfriend “Tough”

Pakistani Bollywood actress, Veena Malik and then boyfriend Ashmit Patel were on the radar for getting hot and heavy in the season 4 of Big Boss, but when it comes to intimate scenes in the movies, the diva says “it’s very tough.”

The bombshell parted with ex-boyfriend Ashmit Patel in 2011, and was reunited with him in the erotic thriller,  ‘Super Model,’ directed by Navin Batra.  Audiences everywhere were eager to see the on-screen chemistry between the two, but Veena tells sources it wasn’t an easy task working with her former flame. “It was very tough to shoot intimate scenes together… I have never been through such trauma. A person you talk to everyday, is so close and then you are not even looking at each other. During the shoot of the movie we weren’t even talking to each other, we had a cold war going on,” Veena told sources.

The ex-couple is okay with having a “work relationship” and will not allow their personal issues to interfere with their professional lives.

 “We have come to a point where we will keep bumping into each other, we have to live in the same industry so it is important to make peace. I have great regard for Ashmit. He has been a strong support for me and after ‘Supermodel’ I realized that we can work together. I would love to do more films with him.” Veena said in a statement.

‘Super model’ was released on September 27 of this year.
