Pakistani actress Veena Malik says her role in “Zindagi 50-50” is more realistic than bold.

“I think this character is realistic rather than bold. This is a true story of a girl and I have given more than my 100 per cent, thanks to Madhuri, the character I am playing,” Veena said in Mumbai on Friday at the music launch of the film.

Veena plays Madhuri, a sex worker in the real-life inspired film. She even met the real sex worker as part of her preparation for the role.

“I met her. Had I not met her, I would not have been able to play this character with such ease,” she said.

Meanwhile, Veena who has shown a keen interest in working with the Khans, said: “I love all three Khans, be it Aamir, Shah Rukh or Salman. I would love to get a chance to work with them. But I think even if Veena Malik does not work with any of them, she will still remain Veena Malik.”

“Zindagi 50-50” also features Riya Sen, Arya Babbar, Rajpal Yadav and Rajan Verma.
