Zarine Khan makes debut in Punjabi film
Remember Zarine Khan? She was one of the discoveries of Salman Khan and the voluptuous beauty was the talk of the town due to her looks that reminded one of Katrina Kaif. Sallu did cast her in the lead role in the film ‘Veer’. However, the film bombed at the box office and the career of Zarine never really took off.
Salman did give a second chance to Zarine though. He made her appear in the item number ‘Character dheela’ in the super hit movie ‘Ready’. Scantily clad Zarine put up a sexy performance in the item number but her efforts were lost as no one noticed or remembered her performance.
She also appeared in the hit film ‘Housefull 2’ but as luck would have it, she was completely overshadowed by the other two heroines in the film, Jacqueline Fernandez and Asin. So it seemed that nothing was going right for Zarine’s career in Bollywood and it was only a matter of time before it ended permanently.
Also Salman Khan is busy with his never ending discoveries of new talents and he has moved on to focus his attention on new protégés. Salman didn’t have much time for Zarine anymore. Therefore it is completely understandable that Zarine will look for regional films to keep her career afloat. Still the news of her appearing in a Punjabi film came as a surprise nevertheless.
Zarine’s debut Punjabi flick is called ‘Jatt James Bond’ and her hero in the film is the latest Punjabi heart throb Gippy Grewal. Ms. Khan is playing the role of a simple Punjabi girl in the movie. The other actors in the movie are Vindu Dara Singh, Avtar Gill, Mukesh Rishi and the popular comedian Gurpreet Guggi. The first set of posters for the movie is recently released and she looks good in the typical Punjabi girl attire. We sure hope that she gets the chance to act in the movie as well instead of only increasing the beauty quotient of the film.
The film, ‘Jatt James Bond’ is produced by the Fortune House Productions and is directed by Rohit Jugraj. The film is supposed to release in some time of April 14. We wish Zarine all the best in her new endeavor and hope that she returns to the main stream Bollywood movies sometime soon and gets a hit to her credit.
