Right now, Zareen has taken a quantum leap from her contemporaries and played a character that many of her peers would shy away from. In her next film Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, the talented star will be seen playing a homosexual character, trying to reduce the stigma around the LGBTQ community in the country. The film, that was being readied for a theatrical release, is now planning to take the digital route.
With the situation in the country, there’s more emphasis on projects that are being made for the OTT platforms and Zareen is ready to take the plunge. She asserts, “I’m definitely open to doing web series. If a great offer comes, why not? I’d love to be a part of it. There are a lot of misconceptions about me not being comfortable with the digital space. But I’m willing to try that space out for sure, especially given the kind of great content these platforms are showcasing today. It’s been our only source of entertainment right now throughout the lockdown. So, when a good script comes my way, I’d definitely jump onto the web bandwagon.” We’re sure Zareen will be flooded with offers now and it’s only about time that we see her make her big digital debut!
