Zareen
Khan
landed
a
dream
debut
in
Bollywood
opposite
Salman
Khan
in
the
2010
film

Veer.

However,
the
actress
hit
the
headlines
that
time
for
her
uncanny
resemblance
to
Katrina
Kaif.
In
a
recent
interview
with
a
leading
daily,
Zareen
said
that
she
is
‘more
than
a
pretty
face’.
She
said
that
she
was
never
given
a
chance
to
break
out
of
her
image
as
a
Katrina
Kaif
lookalike.

Zareen
revealed
that
she
is
still
clueless
about
how
the
“lookalike
thing” suddenly
cropped
up.
“Yes,
in
the
beginning,
it
was
the
whole
lookalike
thing…
Honestly,
I
don’t
even
know
from
where
it
had
creeped
out.
Even
before
my
pictures
or
my
interviews
came
out,
a
random
picture,
from
my
Facebook
account,
was
being
circulated
with
claims
that
she
looks
like
Katrina,”
ETimes
quoted
the
actress
as
saying.

Further
talking
about
how
the
constant
comparisons
affected
her,
Zareen
continued,
“Back
then,
social
media
was
not
as
powerful
as
it
is
today,
and
we
were
majorly
dependent
on
media
houses
and
newspapers.
So,
I
somehow
feel
that
the
public
was
not
really
given
a
chance
to
see
me
and
have
a
perception
of
their
own.
It
was
fed
to
them
as
gossip.
Our
audience
is
also
a
little
gullible
that
way,
believing
whatever
they
are
fed
instead
of
forming
their
own
opinion.”

Zareen
Khan
played
the
role
of
an
18th-century
princess
in
her
debut
film
Veer
for
which
she
had
to
put
on
weight.
However,
the
actress
ended
up
being
body-shamed
for
the
same.

Speaking
about
it,
she
told
the
tabloid,
“It
was
a
very
confusing
phase
for
me
because
for
Veer,
I
had
to
put
on
weight.
The
makers
had
asked
me
to
put
on
weight
because
I
was
playing
an
18th-century
queen
and
they
wanted
to
keep
it
authentic.
That
did
not
go
down
well,
and
I
was
fat-shamed.
I
was
called
‘Fatrina’.
Even
when
I
went
out
for
events,
nothing
good
was
ever
written
about
me;
they
would
talk
only
about
my
weight.
I
was
completely
lost.
I
did
try
my
best
by
working
out
two-five
hours
a
day.
After
being
in
the
loop
and
the
vicious
cycle
for
a
very
long
time,
I
understood
that
I’ll
be
a
big-boned
girl,
no
matter
how
much
weight
I
lose.
Rather
than
torturing
myself,
I
realised
the
importance
of
my
mental
peace
and
that
nothing
compares
to
it.”

actress
further
said
that
she
was
shocked
when
she
was
body-shamed
even
after
losing
40
kgs.
Zareen
told
the
daily
that
it
had
a
taxing
effect
on
her
mind,
and
she
had
a
‘constant
feeling
of
not
being
good
enough’.

In
the
past
too,
Zareen
had
opened
up
about
how
people
made
her
feel
unncomfortable
with
their
comments
about
her
body.
