Reacting to this, Veena Malik lashed back at Vedita by saying, "Who is this girl and why should I be insecure of her. She (Vedita) just want to garner cheap publicity at my cost. It is a concocted story. I am in Dubai from last 30 days how can I manhandle or hurt her. The incident which she claims to be real is actually a reel shot and her injuries seen on her forehead in the picture is mere make-up and a film grab."
The filmmaker Hemant Madhukar also substantiated Veena's stand, "I am not aware of any such incident on the sets of my film. Since December 24, Veena has not shot a single scene for us. I don't know what is Vedita talking all about".
