When Bollywood fans think of Veena Malik the words, beautiful, fiery, outspoken and controversial are some of the first words that are mentioned. As such, the choice of her to play the role of a ghost in the film "Mumbai 125" while at first questionable because of her personality is in the view of some Bollywood social media entertainment observers actually a very good decision.
The director of the film, Hemnant Madhukar explained in an interview with "The Times of India" that he chose her to play the ghost's role after watching her tantrums on a reality show. He revealed that he "liked her attitude and quirky behaviour as that is what his ghost is about."
His comments relieved the fears of some of her fans and pleasantly surprised some Bollywood social media entertainment observers because there is a fear that actresses who show themselves to be 'divas' or difficult, outspoken individuals might be avoided or not considered for some acting roles. As some insiders have noted, the strong personality of an actress such as Veena Malik can sometimes result in producers and directors forgetting that she is a talented actress.
Fans are becoming quite anxious and excited about the upcoming release of "Mumbai 125" on October 17 as many anticipate that she will be one of the most attractive 'ghosts' that people will see on the big screen. Many fans of Veena Malik expect that there will be some statement or action in the movie that will leave a very 'memorable' impression with viewers.
Veena Malik being chosen for a role because of not her beauty but her personality (and talent) on a reality tv show represents a small breakthrough for her and a huge step for Bollywood actresses.
