Pakistani starlet Veena Malik, who has been roped in to play the lead role in the Kannada version of The Dirty Picture, is not inspired by Vidya Balan’s Silk act in the original.

“When it comes to acting, I would not say I am inspired by Vidya because I have not seen her film,” Veena said recently.

“I was planning to see it but when I got the Kannada version of the film, I decided against it because I did not want my character to have any outside imprints. Everyone is appreciating Vidya and no doubt, she is a wonderful actress,” she added.

Veena’s Bollywood debut film Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai is ready to release and currently she is shooting for Mumbai 125 km and Zindagi 50-50.

Recently, she has been in the news for her intimate pictures with Mumbai 125 km producer Hemant Madhukar.

When asked about it, Veena said: “That was not from my PR team. I don’t know who clicked those pictures. But I would like to say, if going out with someone or having dinner means dating that person, then I think everyone is dating someone or the other.”
