Zareen Khan: ‘The Love That Punjabi Industry Gives Me Is So Much More Than What I Get From The Hindi Film Industry’- EXCLUSIVE
On April 10, Zareen khan had a Punjabi single release, Do Vaari Jatt, with Punjabi singer Jordan Sandhu. Since it’s release, the song has been trending on YouTube and is being widely appreciated, and Zareen is overwhelmed by this response. “I instantly liked the song when I first heard it, and I am happy that my intuition turned out to be right and the audience is showing the kind of love to it that I had hoped for. I just want to thank those people for showering us and the song with so much love in such a short span of time,” she gushes.

Zareen shares that it was her first time working with Jordan but she had heard his songs before. “He is an amazing singer and it was super fun working with him as he is such a nice and polite guy. We finished the video in just one day of shoot. I went there one day prior and the hospitality from their end was so heart-warming. I just love Punjabis, they are such amazing people and they love me too,” she says gleefully.

Ask Zareen if she thinks she has found more love and acceptance up North than the Hindi Film Industry, and she agrees. “Definitely I do. Whenever I go to Punjab or any place in North India, they shower me with so much love that overwhelms me. I feel thankful for their love and that they want to see me so much more in their films. I have just done two Punjabi films till now but the kind of love they give me is so much more than what I get from the Hindi film Industry,” she asserts.

However, being born and brought up in Mumbai, was it difficult to dive in that Punjabi culture? “Not at all. Punjabi is not a difficult language to learn and understand and I have a lot of Punjabi friends as well. I have grown up with them and had been listening the language being used around me for a very long time. The language was never a barrier at all. I am a Pathan, and Punjabis and Pathans are very similar people, so Punjab actually feels like home,” Zareen concludes.
