Zarine Khan, who was launched by Salman Khan in veer and later did flims like Housefull 2, is back in news with a reason to, as to why her career in Bollywood bombed!
The 26 year old actress who was always considered as Katrina Kaif’s look alike, has blamed the Dhoom 3 star for everything that went wrong in her career. Talking to a leading daily she informed that the “unfair comparison” affected her career prospects. Zarine says, “Even before my film was released, people started saying that the Veer heroine looks like so and so. And, the audience is such that they live with what they are fed. People didn’t even give me a chance. I guess the whole comparison with Katrina Kaif affected my career. Katrina is a beautiful person and probably, if I weren’t in the same field as her, I’d be flattered by all the comparisons. I was a newcomer and even before the film actually released, people started criticizing me for my weight and acting skills! But they didn’t realize I was asked to put on weight for the film.”
What interesting is that now people have started comapring Zarine’s looks to that of Elli Avram. When asked how she feels about this, She retorts, “This is so unfair. Why do people compare me to Elli… shouldn’t she be compared to Katrina?”.
When you are not getting enough work in the industry, then they tend to find some or the other excuse. In her case she has the lamest of them and is putting all the blame on Katrina Kaif.
