Zarine offered Hollywood project, still mulling
Actress Zarine Khan has revealed that she has been approached to be a part of author-turned-director Daniel Silva’s Chimera, but is still brooding about the offer.
‘I have been offered the film but I am thinking about it,’ said Zarine, who was here to launch a cosmetic brand. ‘It is a thriller called Chimera opposite Billy Zane. I have read the script but I am still thinking about it,’ she added.
Chimera is said to be based on Silva’s bestselling novel The Fallen Angel. Rumours were earlier abuzz that Zarine has been offered the film, but the actress preferred to be tightlipped about it.
Ever since Zarine made her Bollywood debut with the 2010 film Veer, she has chosen a slow and steady path to carve a niche for herself in the film industry. The 28-year-old, who was last seen in Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2, says she believes in quality of work rather than quantity.
‘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 said.
