Zarine Khan takes a dig at Deepika Padukone
Zarine Khan has got a curvy figure like Sonakshi Sinha and Vidya Balan and the actress has no repentance that she has not got a slim and think figure like Deepika Padukone. Zarine is very much proud of her body and said that she does not want a thin body like Deepika Padukone.
When asked whether she crave for a figure like Deepika Padukone, the ‘Veer’ actress replied, “No. I don’t want a figure like Deepika. Though she has a superb body I am very happy with mine. Her genes have also contributed to that and being an athlete has also helped her. The whole discipline of being a sportsperson and everything has helped her. I think we should all be happy in our own skin rather than wanting to be somebody. I am very sorted that way. If I let all these insecurities get to me I won’t be able to survive tomorrow. I have come to terms with myself so I don’t care what people say about me. This is me. I am not here to impress people. If some people like me I am very happy with that”.
While talking to Bollywoodlife, Zarine said that she is proud of her figure and happy with her curvy body, “Yes, people talk about my weight as if it’s the biggest national issue! I have lost 45 kg since the time I joined Bollywood and I haven’t had the extra weight removed out of my body but done it naturally through workouts and exercises. I am very happy with my curvy body. I don’t think an actress must have a perfect figure. I used to weight more than 100 and I feel very proud of the fact that from there I have come to now where I am. I feel very proud of myself. Indian men like curvaceous women which is why actors like Vidya Balan and Sonakshi Sinha have huge fan followings though they don’t have perfect figures”.
Zarine Khan also said that she is fed up with the constant comparison with Katrina Kaif, "In Bollywood, they don’t want to form . Nobody likes originals so the comparisons are always there for any new girl. When Ameesha Patel came in people said she she looked like Neelam. Sonakshi Sinha was compared to Reena Roy while Preity Zinta was compared to Amrita Singh. They just want somebody to look like another person. While it may have worked with the rest, the comparisons with Katrina backfired for me as there’s not much of an age difference though she’s my senior. I find it very unjust because I didn’t get a chance to prove myself. When I started out my career and they said that the Veer girl looks like Katrina Kaif okay…but it has been four years now and it still hasn’t stopped!”Zarine added that she met Katrina at Salman Khan’s place and they share a cordial relationship.
