Veena Malik gets on Dirty!

The much- publicized Kannada movie Silk Sakkath Maga featuring Veena Malik was hit by trouble in Karnataka with fringe Hindu groups and audiences panning off the movie, ironically for its USP – the ‘bold’ Pakistani actress Veena.

Veena’s nationality and excessive skin show have been cited by right- wing groups, led by Sri Ram Sene, as the reason for cutting off the screening of the film in Hubli, Belgaum, Mangalore and Mysore.

Audiences have kept away from the movie in Mandya and Hassan. All this has severely affected the movie’s collection at the box office.

The reviews of Silk Sakkath Maga are bad, with some leading film critics terming it a ‘B’ grade venture.

The movie’s director Trishul was disturbed with the developments. “I don’t understand the logic behind boycotting my movie only because it has a Pakistani actress in the lead role. We have friendly ties with Pakistan and there is a lot of cultural exchange. Veena too is hurt by the boycott,” he complained.
