Veena searching for a new hero

Mumbai, Jan 24 (IANS) Pakistani actress Veena Malik is on the lookout for a new hero to star opposite her in her film "The City That Never Sleeps". She is searching for the new face through a contest.

"In this contest, I will choose a boy opposite me who will be my hero in this film. I am very excited and I believe that new talent should get a chance," Veena said here Wednesday at a press conference held for the film.

"I support this contest that is happening for 'The City That Never Sleeps' and I am looking forward to my hero in the film," she added.

Meanwhile, Veena says that marriage is not on her mind right now. She believes it is still not the right time for her, and says if it was otherwise, (the show) Swayamvar ('Veena Ka Vivaah') would have happened.

"The swayamvar was happening but something happened and swayamvar didn't happen. Right now I am concentrating on my career... so now is not the right time. If it would have been, the swayamvar would have happened," Veena said.

"Marriage is about destiny, it will happen when it has to," she added.

Veena was last seen in "Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai", while her other two movies "Zindagi 50-50" and "Mumbai 125 KM 3D" are delayed.

She is also shooting with ex-flame Ashmit Patel for "Supermodel" and Kannada film "Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga".
