Veena Malik is returning to acting with an upcoming web series

Making a Comeback

Actress Veena Malik is all set to act again in a new series for Urduflix. "I was waiting for a very good script and said no to many projects such as some reality shows that were not up to the mark and quite a few drama scripts," she told a publication. She finally settled on a project with Hum Sab Umeed Say Hain fame, Dr Muhammad Younas Butt, for the OTT platform. "We've been talking about the collaboration for a while but it's happening now for Urduflix," she said, adding that she has a couple of more projects in the pipeline. She described the series as a sociopolitical satire, where "along with politics, social issues will be discussed in [a] lighter vein". Urduflix has been producing series back to back with big names in Pakistan, albeit not all of them actors. Cricketer Fawad Alam is making his debut in a series for the platform and PR guru Frieha Altaf is also starring as an evil midwife in her own series. Actor Aagha Ali also recently announced his directorial debut for the platform.
