Pakistani actress Veena Malik, who is known for her stint in popular reality show Bigg Boss season 4, has called off her wedding with husband Asad Bashir Khan Khattak, who is a businessman.
The diva was married to Asad for three years. While their divorce came as a shock to everyone, the reason behind their divorce was surprising as well.
The media reports suggest that the couple had an argument over Veena's comeback in showbiz industry.
Reportedly, Veena, who has been missing from the limelight post her wedding, wants to return to her profession. However, Asad and his family had issues with Veena's decision which led to an argument. Malik, apparently, chose career over marriage and ended the marriage.
She filed a khula (divorce) application in a family court in Lahore, which ruled out in her favour after non-pursuance of the case by Khan.
As per the media reports, Veena will have to return 25 percent of the haq mehr (dower money) to Asad as she had filed the divorce.
According to the media reports, the actress had filed the plea in the first week of January and had been living separately since then.
The court had summoned Asad but he neither appeared nor filed a reply. Subsequently, the court accepted Veena's plea and issued a decree last month validating the divorce between the couple, the official said.
The couple had kept the news of their divorce under the wraps.
In fact, despite the divorce proceedings, Asad was seen posting love messages for Veena on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Veena and Asad got married in December 2013 and have two children - two years old son Abram and one-year-old daughter Amal.
