I didn’t pose naked for FHM, says Pakistani actress in hot water over nude photoshoot

A controversial Pakistani actress has been forced to deny posing naked for the India edition of FHM sporting a tattoo of the initials 'ISI' on her arm.
Veena Malik appears topless on the front of the December issue of FHM India, sparking outrage among conservatives in Pakistan - both for her nudity and the reference to Pakistan's intelligence agency.

But Miss Malik has strongly denied posing for the lads' mag, with the 33-year-old star insisting the picture had been 'morphed'.

'I have never posed nude. I have never done anything like that ever. My manager and legal team is looking into the matter. We will take legal action against them,' Miss Malik told PTI, the Indian press agency.
FHM India's editor, Kabeer Sharma, insisted however that nothing had been doctored, and claimed that the magazine could prove the photo's authenticity.

Mr Sharma told the BBC: 'We have video footage of the shoot as well as emails from Veena about how she's looking forward to the cover.'
The image was revealed on FHM India's website, Facebook page and Twitter account simultaneously today.

Denials: Miss Malik, pictured left in a PETA operation and right in a latest approach discharge, has rejected faking for the lads' mag, but the FHM Indiareviser declares he has computer communications and video that can confirm the photos authenticity
The uncovering film presentations shows Miss Malik nude, with her arms and one leg positioned to obscure her breasts and pubic area.

On her arm are decorated the initials 'ISI' - the acronym for Pakistan's concerned Inter-Services Intelligence instrumentality - with the tag line, 'hand in the end of the world too?'
Mr Sharma said the source to Pakistani smartness was denoted to be light-hearted, saying: 'In India we prank about this... if any kindmoves wrong... we declare the ISI ought be behind this.'
Miss Malik is no unfamiliar person to controversy. In January she assailed attacked hardline clerics in Pakistan who demandhumble Muslims should be suitably included at all times.
'If a woman is chilly with wearing a burqa, she should wear a burqa. If a woman, being a Muslim, desires to wear denim, then she should wear jeans,' she said in an interview with The Australian newspaper.

She in addition started a strict assault on award killings, highlighting that women were perpetually the objective and not men.

'Have you ever discovered that they've flung corrosive in a guy's face in Pakistan?,' she asked.

Controversial: Miss Malik, pictured left in a fashion shoot and right on the set of a Bollywood film, has clashed with Muslim clerics in Pakistan before, where she is a voice for women's rights
After making her name has a star in 'Lollywood' movies -  the term used to describe films made in Lahore - she found greater fame when she took part in Big Boss 4, the Indian version of Big Brother, last year.

Dressed in shorts and seen hugging actor Ashmit Patel as well as swimming with Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, she was accused of behaving improperly by some Muslim clerics.

Miss Malik has also been accused of being a porn star. However, her refreshingly outspoken views have won her many fans from Pakistan's younger and more liberal circles.

Confronted about her 'immoral' behaviour by cleric Mufti Abdul Qawi on a TV talk show, she snapped back that the country had far more important things to consider - including the rape of children in mosques.

'I’m a Muslim woman, and I know my limits,' she shouted back. The mufti appeared to be too astounded to respond.
