·2-min read

For the very first time actress Zareen Khan who has worked in films like Veer, Ready Houseful 2 will be experimenting with her role. She will be seen playing the role of a lesbian named Mansi opposite Anshuman Jha who will be seen as a gay man named Veer. However, the actress reveals that in the beginning, the makers were not keen on making her part of the film she says, " The moment I heard the story I wanted to be part of it but, I also had to convince the makers to take me in the film. They had this perception about me that I could do only a glamorous role since that's what I have done in my previous film. Therefore they were sure that I wouldn't fit into the character of Mansi. So to convince them I put on a little bit of weight for this character, to look like a girl who loves eating, who is not into her looks, and all of that things. Later I was asked to audition which I did and they were happy with it. That's how I became a part of Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele."


The actress who was launched by superstar Salman Khan in Veer expresses her displeasure in not getting many challenging roles, "Honestly, I want to do roles and characters that will challenge me, that will push me out of my comfort zone. If I am doing the same thing, wearing the same odd clothes and dancing then what's the point, there is no satisfaction to me or to the audience who think that I do the same thing in every film." She adds, "Now, it's a conscious decision to do roles that are different. Unfortunately, up till now, I haven't got that many opportunities and people's perception of me remain the same."


Zareen hopes that Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele will be able to break the typecast, " I hope after this film that image of mine breaks and people see me in a different light and give me all sorts of different roles that I can experiment with," she exclaims.
