Actor Zarine Khan is probably one of the lucky ones who got a dream debut in Bollywood. But since the release of her film Veer opposite actor Salman Khan in January 2010, Zarine has not been seen in any projects so far.

When asked about the same, Zarine, who was in town to promote a talent show Khoj Super Star – 2011, said, "I did not want to sign just anything that came my way. I was waiting for the right movies. Now, I will be starting a movie with Salman in May-June this year. Then I will also be doing a movie with a new comer. But it is too early to talk about them."

As the mention of Salman Khan came up in the conversation, we asked her about the kind of bond she shares with the actor. "Salman is everything for me — my guide, philosopher and friend. In short, he is my angel. I have learnt so much from him especially humility. You know, he never behaves like a super star on the sets," said the 26-year-old actor.

So does the news of Dabangg actor Sonakshi Sinha, being Salman’s new muse, bother her? "No, that doesn’t bother me much," said Zarine, who looked much fitter than before.

Talking about her new avatar, she said, "I have realised that if you want to be in the industry, you need to be fit. And that’s the trend. Therefore, I have shed around 10-12 kgs. I practice everything from yoga, weight training to cardio to be fit."

So is she heading the size-zero way? “No, I don’t believe in the concept of size zero. Moreover, I have big bones, so I can anyways never be size zero,” she said.

Many compare Zarine with actor Katrina Kaif. We asked what she thought about such comparisons, and pat came the reply, “I take my comparisions with Katrina as compliments as she is one of the most gorgeous girls in the industry.”

We couldn’t help but ask if she is seeing some one. “No, I am happy being single,” she concluded.
