Pakistani model and actress Veena Malik, who was recently in the news for a controversy over her nude image on FHM magazine cover, says she is uncomfortable in stripping for a film.

The actress, who is playing a sex worker in Rajeev Ruia's "Zindagi 50:50," says there are some "bold scenes" in the movie, but they are very "aesthetically shot."

While speaking to a leading daily, Veena said, "When Rajeev approached me with the role, he wasn't very confident about whether I would be able to pull it off.
