Islamabad, Dec 25: Controversial Pakistani actress Veena Malik today tied the knot with a businessman in Dubai, according to a media report.
The 29-year-old actress, best known in India for her appearance in 'Bigg Boss', and businessman Asad Bashir Khan Khattak, were married in a court in Dubai, Geo News channel reported.
The channel aired footage of the couple flashing their wedding rings and meeting relatives.
Asad, who runs businesses in Dubai and the US, is the son of a friend of Veena's father.
"I'm more than happy today, I think I'm the happiest girl in the world," Veena told the channel outside the court.
She said it was an arranged marriage. "Destiny just plays its part, we were destined to be there on this particular day," she said.
Veena refused to speak at length about the marriage and only said, "You will just get to know the details very soon."
She added that her husband had promised her a "white wedding in the US".
Asad said their parents had wanted them to get married as soon as possible. He added that functions would be held in Dubai, the US and Pakistan.
Veena had triggered a controversy by doing a topless photo shoot for an Indian magazine, for which she was denounced by extremists and clerics in Pakistan.
