Karachi: Veena Malik’s dramatic show “Astaghfaar” has not been on-aired due to public and ‘authority’ pressure but the controversial actress made handsome money after picturing in promo and few recorded shows.
According to a source, Veena Malik has earned Rs 4 million remuneration for acting in the series of Astaghfaar, which could not be broadcasted by Hero TV management on ensuing reaction of masses on social media.
Insiders said the Hero TV also incurred million rupees losses on the shoot of the program as five or six episodes had been completed for transmission besides huge expenses of the staffers deputed in Dubai for program.
The social media has played an important role towards stoppage of the program in few days, as the voices reached to the ‘authority’ which directed Hero TV management to stop the show promo and avoid airing it in Ramadan.
The management has called upon their staff members from Dubai despite the fact that they have spent huge money on the program.
The decision to stop on-airing the program is the wise step because a majority of staff members felt guilty and feared of moving in the field, sources said however the plan of hiring Veena Malik for a religious program was a stupidity at its height.
Hero TV was not familiar earlier among the masses but it gained absolutely bad reputation after broadcasting promo of Astaghfaar. Though it turns out to be a trend but being a controversial and easier way to get popularity in short time period.
