Zareen Khan, who faced bodyshaming after the release of her debut film, the Salman Khan-starrer “Veer” in 2010, claims she was actually told to put on weight for the role by “experienced people” who gave her “instructions”. Talking about whether the industry judges an actor on the basis of look, Zareen told IANS: “It definitely does. I wouldn’t say all of it, but a major section of the industry does. In the beginning it was really difficult because of the comparison, my weight was almost a national issue.”
When Zareen made her Bollywood debut opposite Salman in “Veer”, people were quick to notice that she had a passing likeness with Katrina Kaif.
Zareen was last seen in ‘Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele’, which released on Disney Plus Hotstar a while back.
