Why would you pose naked for the cover of a men's magazine and then deny it? Only Pakistani actress and reality TV star Veena Malik knows the answer, but has decided to sue the mag instead.

The mag, FHM India's December issue, features Malik in her birthday suit with her limbs strategically placed to cover up her intimates. However, Malik is claiming that FHM "doctored" the cover shot to make her look naked and is now suing the magazine for $2 million!

Malik's spokesperson told The Express Tribune that Malik "denies this shoot. These pictures have never been taken." Meanwhile, her lawyer says the starlet wore underpants during the shoot and "has not posed in the manner in which she has been shown."

FHM editor Kabeer Sharma is on the counteroffensive, saying they have video footage of the photo shoot proving that Malik was in fact naked the whole time she was posing. While they've decided not to release the video to the public due to its "nature," they are considering a countersuit.

So how serious is one (possibly altered) naked picture? Well, The Taliban has sent her death threats; her father wants her arrested; and the Pakistani government officials is apparently so outraged by the photos they might revoke Malik's citizenship, criminally charge her, or ban her from the country.
