It was a dream debut that any girl stepping into the industry could have hoped for. To be paired opposite Salman Khan in his dream project where she was much more than just a leading lady who was roped in for song and dance routine, Zareen Khan found a platform for herself from where it was only a way up. However, VEER didn't do well at the box office and for Zareen, it was indeed a challenge to keep the momentum going, more so since she hadn't signed any other film during the making of VEER.
I am not from a Bollywood background and have come from a non-filmy family. I am still trying to learn the tricks of the trade in Bollywood,'' says Zareen, ''Since VEER didn't do well, I suffered maximum criticism from everywhere. Still, fortunately there were offers coming my way. However I didn't want to take up things for the heck of it. I took every day as a new day and worked on my drawbacks. I guess it was a wise decision because I waited and got a big film like HOUSEFULL 2.'' CHECK OUT: I am happy to play super-hot glamorous girl in HOUSEFULL 2
No wonder, she is considering this as a huge second chance and is pining her hopes on it in a big way.
She says, ''Yes, this is my second chance and I am happy to be associated with a brand like this. It is an honour because not everyone gets such a great opportunity so early in the career. There has been all around positive feedback and people seem to love what they are seeing.''
And how about love of her life? Is there a real life Jolly somewhere hidden in a corner for Zareen? She smiles, ''I don't really want to talk about my personal life. Of course when the time is right, I will.''
