Pakistani actress Venna Malik, whose fame and USP took a backseat following the antics of Bollywood strip queens Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey, is now considering doing something different and more worthwhile.
To revive her interest in art, the 28-year-old actress recently visited Finland to collaborate with the country's best known visual artist Vesa Kivien.
The duo will create five varied art pieces that will lay focus into finding common ground and beauty over the differences between the East and the West. This will be the first collaborative painting of Vesa Kevinen and Veena which will never be repeated by anyone in future.
In addition to her interest in art and culture, the motive behind the visit to the north European country is to promote a cause. "I feel very glad that Finland well known visual artist Vesa Kivinen called me to work with him," Veena said. "I didn't come here just for the art love but the main motive behind this is to support women rights."
The profits from their collaborative art pieces will go to a charitable organization that promotes women's rights in Pakistan.
In the past, Malik has come forward in support of several other charitable trusts including WHO.
Vesa Kivinen is best known in Finland for his collaboration with Leif Segerstam's "Völvan" symphony, and his charity project with Miss Finland Noora Hautakangas.
Following the path of Hollywood's fashion icon, Veena recently launched her new "VM" logo.
She is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming films "Zindagi 50-50", "All U Need... Love" and "Mumbai 125 Km" slated to release sometime at the end of this year.
