The hot topic of the matter, which came out from the promos of Salman Khan’s Veer is the leading lady of the movie Zarine Khan. Can be called it coincidence or whatever, it is hard to neglect that Zarine’s eerie resemblance to Katrina Kaif is something. But to say that she is just a twin of Katrina, would be doing gross unfairness to someone who is all set for starting steps into the world of acting.
Below the exclusive interview transcript with Zarine is given, the clock is rewinded and you are taken too back in time to give you an insight on how a single phone call changed Zarine Khan’s life completely.
She is a pucca Mumbai girl. She used to live in Santacruz during her childhood and she is living in Bandra now. She had a very normal childhood. She used to be a quiet little girl with hardly any tantrums. She used to be a very good student in school, always scoring in the range of 90% and a complete teacher’s favorite. Since she was such a good student, her mother wanted her to become a doctor. So she took up science and joined Rizvi College. However, she could not complete her education due to certain family and financial problems.
Early days of struggle:
Due to financial pressures, at a very young age, the responsibility of running the house came on her shoulders. At that time, she had to give up studies and start working. She always had a tom-boy streak to her personality. Most of her friends in school and college were boys. She actually became the ‘Man of the house’ when the situation demanded. She was fat and weighed almost 100 kgs in college time. She had never in her wildest dreams that she or her friends thought, she would enter the glamor world. She was just another happy go-lucky-girl enjoying her chocolates and junk food. However, when her family was going through financial chaos, she became more responsible. She knew that she had to take charge of the house since there were her mom and younger sister to look after. At that time, she started taking life seriously and began to focus on losing weight and getting into shape. She gave up on sweets, chocolates, started serious work-out and lost a lot of weight eventually. Since she had not completed her education, she could not really get a high-profile job and that is when she began modeling. She did quite a few small assignments that fetched her enough money to run the house.
Bagging Veer – Her First Big Break:
She got a call one day from someone at Mukta Arts and they asked her to come to the sets of Yuvvraaj during her modeling days. She did not ask too many questions for being a struggling model and immediately left for the venue. When she reached on the sets, she saw Salman Khan, a man whom she was a big fan for a long time. After the shoot, she got a chance to speak to him and told him that she was a big fan of his and even requested for his autograph. He obliged her with his autograph but also told her, ‘Sweetheart, very soon you will be signing autographs‘. She did not quite understand what he meant but understood about it later when she was offered for the movie Veer.
Growing up on Bollywood:
She is a huge Bollywood buff and watches all sorts of movies. In fact, even the movies which flopped badly have been seen by her too in the theatre. She was watching a movie, despite of the theatres used to be all empty. When she was a small kid, she used to be like Dharmendra because of his He-Man image. She likes strong and well-built men.
