Zareen Khan’s Latest In A Dual Avatar!


It’s been only a decade since Zareen Khan made a regal debut in Veer and then danced her way into our hearts with the popular ditty Character Dheela Hai from the blockbuster Ready. Be it the massive grosser Housefull 2, her glamourous turn in Hate Story 3, her debut in Punjabi movies with Jatt James Bond or her foray into Telugu movies with the thriller Chanakya, Zareen has already made a mark in many different industries and, truth be told, she is just getting started!

Zareen is currently shooting for a Tamil horror-thriller called ‘Nagabhairav’. Directed by VC Vadivudiyan and produced by V Palanivel, the movie will be released in multiple languages, including Hindi. And for the first time ever, she will be playing a double role and Zareen had lots of fun shooting for this challenging part. “While shooting for this film, I felt like I finally got the opportunity to do everything that I have always wanted to do! As of now, we have already shot our portions in Chennai, Pondicherry, and Kumbakonam. We still have one schedule left to shoot, which will be planned mostly around November,” she reveals.

‘Nagabhairav’ is touted to be an action-packed adventure. So, should we be expecting to see her doing stunts?  “I have done a lot of my own stunts, which was really exciting and which also got me injured quite often during the shoots! But I never let that break my spirit or my stride. Now I feel ready to take on more action-oriented roles. In an era where female actors are finally being recognised and lauded for their artistry, I am glad that this film gives me the opportunity to be much more than just a pretty face!” she shares with a smile.

For a while now, Zareen’s mother had been suffering from ill-health and only after devoting herself to reviving her mother’s failing health, the actress is back on her feet…literally. “My mother’s health has been a reason of concern for me since the last year and a half. That has taken up most of my time. But by the grace of God, she is feeling much better now and I can concentrate on work again. I have always wanted to learn Kathak and I am finally doing that now alongside other dance techniques. I am back on my fitness game and also plan to be more active on my social media channels. Of course, there will also be other announcements when the time is ripe,” she concludes.
