Her debut virtually a decade in the past within the Salman Khan starrer movie ‘Veer’ was talked about within the media and the Hindi movie business alike. While the movie tanked miserably on the field workplace, she appeared in just a few Bollywood tasks thereafter, together with ‘Ready’, ‘Aksar 2’, ‘Hate Story 3’ and ‘Housefull 2’, however didn’t get observed for it. Yes, we’re speaking about actress Zareen Khan, who not too long ago opened up about being handled as simply ‘one other pretty face who can’t act’.
While voicing that she didn’t get sufficient alternatives to showcase her performing prowess, Zareen, in a latest interview with SpotboyE stated, “I want people to see my potential. Till lately, I was only identified as another pretty face who cannot act, without even giving me an opportunity to showcase my talent. But now, I am doing my bit, reaching out to whomever I can and I feel lucky that there are people out there who still believe in me and want to give me a chance to show my talent. I am happy to work with such people.”
“I am not from a film background that a huge line of producers and directors will be outside my house to work with me irrespective of the fact that whether my last film was a hit or a flop. Being a person not belonging to this industry, I have to be very careful with everything that I deliver. It has to be good and I have to take time to gauge a project and not just do for the heck of it, otherwise, after a point, even those projects will stop being offered to me. I am just being very careful in what I present to my audiences,” she added.
Earlier, in an interview with Navbharat Times, Zareen had opened up about how the fixed comparability to Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif didn’t work in her favour.
“People come into the industry to create an identity for themselves and not to be someone else’s lookalike or shadow. I have struggled to make a place for myself in Bollywood for 11 years, but till date, people tag me as Katrina’s lookalike. No filmmaker wants to work with a lookalike or duplicate” she had stated within the interview.
Stating that it wasn’t simply Katrina whom she was likened with, however that she was known as a reproduction of some different heroines as nicely, Zareen stated, “I think I have a universal face. I apparently look like a lot of people. Some call me Pooja Bhatt’s resemblance, some say, Preity Zinta, some even state I am Sunny Leone’s lookalike. I don’t understand why don’t I ever look like Zareen Khan to people.”
On the work entrance, Zareen is awaiting the discharge of her movie, ‘Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele’. The film was initially scheduled to launch in 2020 however received delayed due to the pandemic.
