Few days ago, we introduced you to Zarine Khan, the gorgeous beauty who is making her big screen debut opposite Salman Khan in Veer. While in the earlier interview, Zarine spoke about her background and childhood days, here she sheds light on her character in Veer.
My Character in Veer
"Veer is an epic love story of a warrior set in the pre-Independence era. I am playing an Indian Princess called Yashodhara. My father's role is played by Jackie sir. I am in love with Veer (played by Salman Khan). In spite of being a princess, Yashodhara doesn't have any airs as such; she is a people's person. She knows what her father is doing is not right but deep down in her heart, she is aware that her father and brother are trapped in the British influence. Also she loves them too much to revolt against them. The film talks about her whole journey from a sweet, innocent little princess to being a 'Yuvraagi' and a mature individual with a lot of authority."
Training and Preparation undertaken
"While starting out, we did a lot of research on Indian princesses of that era and found out that most of them were quite well built and hefty. They used to eat desi ghee. Hence, they weren't skinny and thin like the girls of today. Therefore I had to put on some weight to get into the skin of the character. Luckily for me, putting on weight is very easy. I feasted on my favorite chocolates. Besides putting on weight, I also undertook dancing lessons. As far as acting is concerned, I have learnt everything on the job from my director Mr. Anil Sharma and costars like Salman Khan, Jackie sir, etc."
