It is also being said that Chimera is the same Hollywood film, for which Aishwarya Rai was approached first. Talking to the media persons, Zarine said, "I have been offered the film but I am thinking about it. It is a thriller called Chimera opposite Billy Zane. I have read the script but I am still thinking about it."
"I really don't want to be in the race of newcomers, who are just running after the projects. It's not that I haven't been offered films. I have been offered a lot of films after Housefull 2, but I want to take my time and do quality work rather than quantity. Though would take time but I would like to follow it," she added.
