Both of the Pashto words were borrowed from Western Punjabi but at different times, and both of the Punjabi words come from the same Sanskrit word. The Malayalam word is (nearly) identical to the Sanskrit word it's borrowed from.
I wonder if they have anything to do with "veranda".
Nope. However, they are apparently cognate with "image."
