Zareen: People Tend To Make You Conscious By Their Comments

Darpan News Desk IANS, 26 Nov, 2019 10:35 PM

    Bollywood actress Zareen Khan says she learnt to ignore people who bodyshame her and adds that initial failure in her career made her a stronger person.


    "People around me made me feel uncomfortable and conscious with their comments. In school, whenever students tried to bully me because of my body weight, I would give it back to them. So, after a point, they were intimidated. So, I would say we should rather avoid those people knowing that they are just negative people. I am a wide structured person and I cannot cut my bones off," Zareen told IANS.


    The actress is all set for the release of her new film "Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele", and says she is happy with the way the film has shaped up.


    "Right now I am very happy with the kind of work that is coming my way, and I am not limiting myself to only Hindi cinema. I do not understand why, on the one hand we say that we are living in 'one world' and on the other hand, we still look down upon regional cinema. I have got more interesting offers in Punjabi and Tamil and Telugu film industries," the actress claimed.


    Starting her career in 2010 with the film "Veer" opposite Salman Khan, Zareen has gone through a tough time after its box office failure. She has also constantly been referred to as a Katrina Kaif clone.


    "For the longest time since childhood, I was told that I look like my mother. Then films happened and people started telling me that I am lookalike of an actress (Katrina Kaif). I had no plan to become an actress and then that happened. Initially, I was a lost child and all the comments on me, my looks, my body were quite suffocating. For quite some time, I did not know why things were happening the way they were," she said.
