Zareen Khan says she ‘cannot be a monkey on Salman Khan’s back’ forever

Zareen Khan made her acting debut in 2010’s Veer, opposite Salman Khan. As the actor continues her journey in the film and entertainment industry, there have been continuous rumours that Salman has been helping her in her career.

In a recent interview, Zareen opened up about the conjecture. Agreeing that she is thankful to him for launching her in Bollywood, she added that she cannot piggyback on him forever.

“I’m thankful to Salman because I would’ve never entered the industry if it was not for him. He gave me an entrance to the industry. But my struggle started after I became a part of the industry because then I knew nothing. Salman is an amazing person but he is also a busy man. I cannot be a monkey on his back and bother him for little things,” she told Hindustan Times.

She added that a lot of people, to this day, think that all the work she gets is through him. “And that’s not true. Salman is a friend and just a phone call away but I’m not pestering him. And that undermines the struggle, the hard work that I’ve done,” she said. Read – Why did Salman Khan did not attends Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal wedding…

Zareen Khan On “Veer”

Can’t believe I’ve been a part of this industry for a decade. Time really flies. These 10years have definitely been a roller coaster ride. There have been several ups & downs, goods & bad, rejections etc but I’ve taken everything as a learning experience.
A lot of people struggle to become a part of this film industry, I was lucky enough to get an entry so easily, esp. when I’d never thought or had any dreams of becoming a part of it. My struggle started after I became a part of this industry. I was like a lost child in the initial days really trying to understand how it all works. I did not even know where the camera was when I gave my very first shot for Veer. 😄
