Pakistani star Veena Malik appears on the cover of FHM India wearing nothing but a "tattoo" of the letters "ISI" (a reference to a spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence). But Malik claims that when she posed for the photographer, she wore a bikini, hot pants and a thong — topless, but never fully nude. She's suing the publication for $2 million.
From the lawsuit's paperwork:
Our client had categorically informed each of you that by doing photo shoot, she does not want to pose nude in any photographs, which you readily agreed. You further assured our client that upon taking photographs, you would show the same to our client and that only on our client's approval, would you publish the said photographs in the said magazine.
Our client states that each of you have materially misrepresented to our client and have deceived our client and induced our client to take a photo shoot. You have further intentionally induced our client to take photographs with clothes on and have subsequently tampered with and / or morphed the photographs with a deliberate intent to cheat our client. Your act has caused damage and harm to our client's reputation in the profession in India as well as in her country of birth and the world. By your said act of publishing the said photo images which shows our client naked, our client states that you have caused irreparable harm, loss, damage to the reputation of our client and committed offence of defaming our client in the public. Our client states that you have thus committed offences punishable under the Indian Penal Code as well as Information and Technology Act, 2000.
As you may recall, earlier this year, Malik was accused of "shaming" Pakistan by appearing on the Indian TV show Bigg Boss. She eloquently responded to the anger of a religious leader.
