MUMBAI: It looks like that Veena Malik married Pakistani businessman Asad Bashir Khan Khattak on Christmas Day without telling her alleged ex-boyfriend back in Mumbai.
Now there are reports that Prashant Pratap Singh has filed a complaint with police against Veena alleging intimidation by her.
Veena and Prashant were reportedly in a live-in relationship and the two stayed at an apartment in Garden View Building in the Aarey area of Mumbai.
Prashant claims she threatened to file rape and molestation case against him if he ever told anyone about their live-in relationship. He says that though they both were partners in an entertainment company called Huge H Digital, Veena tried to project him before other people that he was her gay staffer on a meagre salary of Rs 10,000.
Prashant Singh has alleged that “she (Veena) was pregnant with my child in 2012. We discovered about the pregnancy on May 10 when we shifted to Royal Palms. She was very keen on having the baby but we were not ready for it. I had filed for a divorce then from my first wife. After attending the mahurat of her Kannada film Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga, we decided to terminate the pregnancy.’’
He says, “Veena seduced me while we were shooting a viral campaign and that was our first meeting. On the same night, we had sex. In fact she kept the Karwa Chauth vrat for me that she even tweeted. I know intimate things about her that her current husband Asad can confirm. I have even caught her cheating on me at least three times.’’
Upset over Veena’s marriage, Prashant has now filed the complaint against Veena under Section 507 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.
But Veena has reportedly pooh-poohed the allegations by Prashant. The Bhaskar daily has quoted Veena as responding to Prashant, “Lagta hai logon ko meri khushi pasand nahin hai. My husband laughed the loudest when we heard about this alleged skeleton in my cupboard.”
About her business relations with Prashant, Veena is reported to have said, “He (Prashant) is part of my 20-member team . He is a member of my Indian staff. He basically takes care of my digital content on the internet. I pay him 10,000 rupees per month .That’s it. And he is very fond of photographing me. Wherever I’d go he would take my pictures. I even got him a camera when I saw how passionate he was about photographing me. I was very fond of him because he truly seemed to enjoy photographing me.”
Veena says, “I always treated him like a brother. He is one among my very good gay friends.”
