Zareen Khan says her resemblance to Katrina Kaif didn't work in favour of her Bollywood career

Zareen Khan, who was launched by Salman Khan in his film Veer, was openly compared with Katrina Kaif because of her facial resemblance. For a long time, Zareen was called Katrina's duplicate and she feels it ruined her career. "People come in the industry to create an identity for themselves and not to be someone else's lookalike or shadow. I have struggled to make a place for myself in Bollywood for 11 years, but till date, people tag me as Katrina's look alike. No filmmaker wants to work with a lookalike or duplicate," the actress told Navbharat Times.

 
Adding further, Zareen said, "I think I have a universal face. I apparently look like a lot of people. Some call me Pooja Bhatt's resemblance, some say, Preity Zinta, some even state I am Sunny Leone's lookalike. I don't understand why I don't look like Zareen Khan to people." She also named other actors who couldn't do much for themselves in the industry because of the same comparison. "Sneha Ullal was compared with Aishwarya Rai, Harman Baweja was compared to Hrithik, etc, and all of them remained that couldn't build much for themselves in the industry.
 
On the work front, Zareen has been working on Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, and she had earlier revealed about the film, "“ It&rsquo's a beautiful film about a lesbian girl (played by me) and her friendship with a gay. It has already gone to the South Asian International Film Festival that happened in New York last year in November and won the award for Best Film. We were thinking of releasing it in March and then May, but due to lockdown, plans are a little changed. I think producers will only be able to take a call about what has to be done.”
