MUMBAI: Pakistani model turned actress Veena Malik who is gearing up for her big Bollywood debut with ‘Zindagi 50-50’ directed by first-timer Rajiv Ruia was spotted at Mumbai’s Kamathipura, the city’s biggest red light area.
In a unique way to promote her upcoming film ‘Zindagi 50-50’ which releases on 24 May, Veena Malik and her co-actor Rajan Verma were spotted distributing packets of condoms to sex-workers.

Veena Malik who earlier made special appearances in several Hindi films like ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’, is leaving no stone unturned for her big debut as an actress.
