Pakistani actress Veena Malik revealed that she turned down reconciliation call from tainted cricketer Mohammad Asif, who was sentenced to prison term after a London court found him guilty during the spot-fixing trail.
Malik said she received a distress call from London telling her to immediately rush to the city to be with Asif.
"It was a mutual friend from, London, Zahid Ali Saab, who called me on October 26 stating that Asif wanted to desperately see me, that he wanted reconciliation.
“I declined. How can I turn back the clock? Asif and I shared a beautiful if stormy relationship. We were together until 2008 when I came to know about his match-fixing activities; I left him," Malik said.
"Even when we were together I tried to warn him against what he was doing. I am not surprised by the court's verdict. But I am sad for him," she adds.
She admitted she still harbours feelings for Asif.
"I can't deny I still have feelings for him. Relationships don't die.
"I've no hard feelings about any of my former boyfriends. My time with Asif was special. But I've moved on."
The actress is said to have shared a live-in relationship with the banned Pakistan pacer for one and a half years.
