KOLLYWOOD’S PRINCESS Zarine Khan is all set to play a princess in her debut Tamil film with Vikram

She played a princess in her debut film Veer, opposite Salman Khan. And now, she will be playing a princess again in her debut flick in Kollywood! We’re talking about Zarine Khan, who will be seen playing the lead opposite Vikram in his forthcoming period film Karikaalan, with director L I Kannan. Though Zarine Khan hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet, she confirms that she will be doing this project. “I haven’t yet signed the documents, but it’s almost confirmed that I will be playing the lead opposite Vikram. Once things are finalized, I will start shooting for my portions by September,” she says.

Talking about how she landed the role, Zareen says, “The makers had approached my PR agency with the script and when I heard my role, I was mighty impressed. I will be playing the role of a young princess. I was told that the director had seen me in Veer and they quite like the way I had carried myself in the role. They thought my body language was apt and that I could pull off the role of a princess in this flick as well.” An added incentive, Zareen says, was the chance to wok with Vikram. “I know Vikram is a big hero in the south and I had even seen a few of his Tamil movies that got dubbed in Hindi, like Aparichit (Anniyan) and Raavan. So, when I got a chance to work with him, I couldn’t find any reason to say ‘no’!” she says excitedly. So, has she met the actor in person? “Not yet. But I had a formal meeting with director Kannan to discuss the terms,”

she says and adds, “He’s a debutant and has a fire burning within him to succeed. Vikram is experimental in nature and when he’s signed a project with a director, it means he’s confident of its success.” Interestingly, industry sources say that the female lead in Karikaalan was first offered to Katrina Kaif. However, Zareen insists she isn’t aware of this. “I’ve no clue if the role was first offered to Katrina. And anyway, I’m not too keen to know what happened before I was approached. I’m excited about this script and can’t wait to start shooting. I will even start learning Tamil soon,” she promises.
