Pakistani actress: I posed topless, not nude for FHM

The Pakistani actress featured in a racy cover shot in the December edition of a men's magazine in India told CNN she posed topless but not completely naked.

Veena Malik appeared on the cover of the Indian edition of FHM wearing only one thing: a tattoo on her arm bearing the initials ISI, the acronym for Pakistan's infamous Inter-Services Intelligence agency - causing a stir in her conservative homeland.

Malik said FHM doctored the photographs to show her without clothes and has now revealed plans to sue the publication.

"I admit that I have done a bold shoot," she said, "but I was not nude. There is a big difference between topless and being nude.

"You will see various shoots here in the Bollywood industry where the actresses actually went topless but they were covered like the way I was."

    Brave girl, to be doing that and live in Pakistan, even if she wasn't fully undressed.

    @Airport taxi, how much to get from Pearson to Niagara Falls?

    She's lying. I took a really really close look at the picture and I couldn't find any obvious airbrushing. I'm going to go back and take another really really close look.

    You people are all having fun at my expense, but I tell you this is a very serious situation. I would never do such a thing for I am a good Islamic Pakistani woman. Your crude jokes are most distressing.

    Now, for the Toronto Taxi driver, I too would like to go to Niagara Falls. I will be in Toronto soon and have never seen this wonderful site. I would like you to quote me two prices, one assuming I will be wearing normal apparel, and the other assuming I will be wearing only a thong.

    Many Thanks
    Veena Malik
