Salman Khan’s leading lady from Veer, Zareen Khan says people know her because she was paired opposite Salman Khan in her first film! Zareen made her debut in Veer in 2010. The actress said that her part in the film was not that important but it will always be close to her heart!
When asked whether starring in a big budget film opposite Salman, for her debut actually helped, she replied, “Today if people know me it is because of Veer, even if the movie did not do well. It is because I was paired opposite Salman Khan that today people know me. So, ‘Veer’ in spite of not doing well, will be very dear to my heart because it was my first film.”
She added, “Those (films) did too, but not what all these films that I am doing right now did for me because my role was not that important. In ‘Ready’, I did only one song, in Housefull 2 there were a lot of other people and I had a very small role. So, maybe I was not really noticed or I did not get to do much in the film.”
“It was after Hate Story 3 that people have started seeing me in a different light and offering me films that they feel I can be a solo part of. I think it is not about doing big films. It is about how important your role is in a movie and what that does for you,” she said.
