Mumbai: Whether she posed in her birthday suit or not for a men's magazine, may have put Veena Malik in the spotlight. But the Pakistani starlet has certainly revealed much more by dashing off a legal notice asking for Rs 10 crore as damages.

Interestingly, her legal notice states that she is residing in Bandra and the address is the same as that of Ashmit Patel's abode! Also, her nude snapshots did the rounds around the same time as her photo shoot for her new reality show's launch. Controversy and publicity go hand-in-hand.

Says a source, "Veena has been staying in Bandra which belongs to Ashmit. It is clear that he has been a great source of support to her in every move she has made in India."

Ever since Ashmit and Veena bonded in a reality show in which they appeared as lovebirds and continued their relationship even after the show, there has been a great deal of speculation about them.

Though the starlet has maintained that he was special, she has now agreed to be part of a reality show to find a prospective hubby a show in which the participants don't actually tie the knot.

Adds the source, "Whether she really marries or not is to be seen. But in the past, Rakhi Sawant and Ratan Rajput-marriages on the show ended up only as engagements meant to be broken."

Veena maintains in her legal notice that there were no nude photographs taken nor was there any video shots taken of her in the nude. However, the magazine folk state that they have video evidence of the shoot.

Veena remained unavailable for comment.
