Prop me not

Actor Zareen Khan says she prefers to do meatier roles in small movies rather than being a prop in a big budget multi-starrer.

The actor made her Bollywood debut with Veer and then went on to work in films like Housefull 2 but of late she has done smaller projects such as Hate Story 3, Aksar 2 and her upcoming release 1921.
“Rather than being a prop in a film with big actors, I would love to do a meatier and more meaningful role in a film that does not feature a big actor. Though I do not judge an actor or a film on these levels,” she told PTI.


The actor said the big projects that she did in the beginning of her career did not benefit her much.
“Housefull 2 was a big film but it was a multi-starrer and I was one of the four girls, so I couldn’t cash in on it completely. In Ready it was just a song. Veer was a dream debut, unfortunately the film did not do well.
“I received flak for looking like somebody else (she was called a Katrina Kaif look-alike) and the weight and all. Somehow, it did not work for me.”


However, Zareen Khan says Veer, featuring superstar Salman Khan, was a dream debut for her.
“Salman is somebody who will always be very dear, special and very close to my heart because if not for him, I had never thought of becoming a part of this industry. I would have never been a part of this industry because this was not my plan and now I am here. The debut I got was a dream debut for me,” Zareen told.
