Zarine Khan: I Will Do More Item Numbers

Zarine Khan: I Will Do More Item Numbers

Zarine Khan overshadowed Asin who was the heroine of Ready, thanks to her item number ‘Character Dheela’. The voluptuous actress says, “Veer, my debut movie, was a period film so it had a specific audience and even I had a different look. The song in Ready had a commercial appeal which helped me connect with masses in a big way.” She says that she hardly thought of becoming an actress. Zarine laughs, “No, never. In fact I was a bright student and had dreamed of becoming a doctor. I wasn’t even conscious about being over-weight, because medicine was going to be the chosen field. It was after I joined glambiz that I became conscious of my looks and truly disciplined myself to get in shape.”

She admits that Salman Khan was the main, driving factor for her success. Dismissing rumors that she was an extra who fit in for Katrina Kaif (the two look quite similar) in Yuvraaj (2008), Zarine says, “Yes, Salman did spot me first on the sets of Yuvraaj but I was no extra. I don’t know how these stories have been circulated. I was just one big Salman fan and had gone to meet him on the sets. To top my excitement, I also got an opportunity to chat with him. He must have noticed something which helped me land directly in Veer as a lead. It was completely like a dream. I still find it hard to believe.”

Salman was looking for a Katrina lookalike and Zarine fit the bill. She says that she has always looked up to Sallu for advice ever since the making of Veer. She gushes, “It has been incredible to know someone like him. Salman is my friend, philosopher and guide. He is the only one I know in Bollywood and so I look up to him for anything and everything. I consult him for smallest of my decisions and I have always said that I owe every bit of my career to him”. Regarding his surgery, she says “Actually he is not supposed to talk much, so we have exchanged sms-es. I’ve been talking to his family members who are there with him. He is recovering well.”

Is Zarine ready for more item numbers? “I won’t call Character Dheela an item number. But yes, if it’s a decent song and shot in an aesthetic manner, I’ll definitely do an item number. Item songs are ‘good and entertaining’, as long they don’t become vulgar.” Apart from Parter 2 with her favorite Salman, Zarine Khan also has an upcoming South movie with superstar Vikram.
