@ is feeling ‘ecstatic’ nowadays. Reason: she’s no longer being called a Katrina Kaif lookalike – a tag that stuck to her ever since she made her debut in ‘Veer’ (2010) opposite Salman Khan .
“I am ecstatic that the comparisons to Katrina have stopped,” the actress in an interview to a daily. “Everyone comes here to make their own identity. Katrina is a beautiful woman and works very hard. It is a privilege to be compared to her. If I didn’t belong to the industry, I would be happy but as a professional, I don’t want to live under anyone’s shadow.”
She also said that she does not meet her mentor @ due to their busy schedule. “I will always be grateful to him,” said Zareen , elaborating, “If I am an actor today, I owe every bit of it to him. But he is a busy person. I don’t randomly call him for little things but if I am stuck, I know he is always there to help me.”
The actress also evaded questions on @‘s marriage to Iulia Vantur. “Honestly, I have no idea. I don’t speak to him on a daily basis but if he has found the woman he wants to marry, like the entire country, I am looking forward to his wedding too,” she said.
