"We were shooting in Fiji and Navinji came to me and said I want to talk to you. He said, 'Veena, when we approached you for the film, we had heard that you and Ashmit are good friends. But now that we are shooting the film, you both don't even talk to each other. I am tense that how will we shoot the scenes.'," said the Pakistani actress Veena who became popular here after her stint on 'Bigg Boss 4'.

"I said, 'Sir, when you will say action, I will leave all my personal issues behind and I will try to work as a true professional'," she added.
Ashmit and Veena came close during season four of reality show 'Bigg Boss'. However, the two parted ways soon after they left the house.
Ashmit plays a photographer in "Supermodel" and he was missing from the event.
When Veena was asked where is Ashmit, she said, "Well, who is Ashmit? Well, I think the title says 'Supermodel' and supermodel is standing here. Supporting artist does not matter, is it, whether they come or they don't come."
