Veena Malik turns spiritual, reads the Bhagavad Gita!

The controversial actor says that for inner peace in troubled times, she reaches out to the holy book

Veena Malik and books don’t go together, unless it is a fashion magazine that the actor is flipping through. Yet recently, during a shoot, Veena Malik decided to read the Bhagavad Gita, and for a reason valid enough. The actor said that she has been quite disturbed of late with the news of the brutal Delhi gang-rape case, and that reading the Gita helps her seek a spiritual path and affirms her belief that justice will be delivered to the victim.

Commenting on the issue, the former Bigg Boss contestant said, “Reading Bhagavad Gita makes you feel relaxed. It shows you the spiritual path, which seems very difficult to human beings. It can fix your goals in life. I feel there should be no boundaries in having faith in other religions.” Veena, who is currently shooting for her upcoming movie The City That Never Sleeps, waxed philosophically about religion. “Religion is a collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values. They tend to derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle from their ideas about the cosmos and human nature,” she said.

Well, we’re surprised, and speechless. Veena is definitely churning out pearls of wisdom! What say BollywoodLifers? Are you happy or surprised to see the sudden change in Veena?
