Veena was photographed at the party being kissed by Bobby, her co-star in her film, ‘Daal Mein Kucch Kaala Hai’. “Veena and I share a very good relationship. I love her. We greet each other like this every time. Why do people have a problem with our way of greeting each other?” says Bobby. Veena, too, is quite okay with the entire episode. “It was very cute. Bobby just came and kissed me.
I think it was a beautiful gesture and I’m alright with it. It was just a tap on the lips, not really a French kiss. I’m ok with Bobby or my girlfriends doing it,” she says. The actor adds that she was very touched by the surprise birthday party as she was expecting to spend the evening alone. “I had just come back from Dubai and my manager insisted that I go for dinner on my birthday. When I saw all my friends there with gifts and flowers, I felt blessed,” she says.
Veena’s ‘good friend’ Ashmit Patel, however, was not present at the party. “Ashmit was not around. We are not that close anymore. We don’t meet often. I have signed a film with him so maybe we will meet when we start shooting,” says Veena. Veena, who is all set to shortlist candidates for her ‘Swayamvar’, also addressed recent rumours that she charges only Rs 1 lakh to do a film, she says, “No way, I’d charge 1 lakh to give people a glimpse of me, not a film. – PT
