Actress Zareen Khan has always been the attention of the public eye for her films, but more specifically, for her body type. People also noticed her resemblance with actress Katrina Kaif.
She made her debut with the Bollywood film, ‘Veer’, alongside megastar Salman Khan. The actress claims that she was forced to put on weight for her debut film. Talking to IANS, she said, “Everybody was just talking about my weight and I couldn’t understand why is my weight such an issue, because I was told to put on that weight. When I entered the industry, I was like this lost child. I was a 20 or 21-year-old, not as polished as the 20 or 21-year-olds we have now. Nothing to do with the Bollywood industry and there I was on a film set with the biggest superstar of the country,”. She also added that when she was giving her first shot, she did not even know where the camera was. Certain experienced people gave her instructions and she followed them as she was supposed to look like that character.
The actress also shared that it was tough for her initially because of the comparisons concerning her weight. However, she also said that nothing is permanent and perceptions divert with different films. Zareen Khan’s last film was ‘Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele’ which was released on Hotstar in May 2021.
