Bollywood star Salman Khan has slammed the hype over the reported
similarities between his Veer co-star Zarine and actress Katrina
Kaif. Salman said that if there was any similarities between the
two stars he would have been the first notice it. Salman said that
God has never made two people look alike and he didn't seen any
resemblance between Katrina and Zarine except for the the fair skin
and sharp nose.
Salman added that he and director Anil Sharma decided to cast
Zarine because they wanted a yesteryear look and hence the need for
a fresh face for it. Salman said that the presence of an
established actress would have looked like as if the actress was
playing the role. Salman who had met Zarine on the sets of Yuvvraaj
felt she would be ideal for the role.
Salman added that he didn't feel the pressure of the huge box
office success of Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots as he never believed
in the number race and no parallel could be drawn between 3 Idiots
and a period film like Veer. Salman concluded by saying that if his
movie was good it would connect well with the audience.
