Zarine Khan started her career with 'Yuvraaj' opposite Salman Khan and considers the actor as his mentor. Salman launched Zarine and also helped her to understand the ropes in Bollywood.
There were rumours that the two could be more than just friends, but of course like all link-ups in Salman's life this too has faded away. But Zarine still remains faithful to her friend.
Zarine has been wanting to do an item number since she delivered the hit 'Character Dheela Hai'. The actress also got many offers but nothing clicked for her. Finally, she got a good offer in Sanjay Dutt’s 'Zilla Ghaziabad' with a decent remuneration of 30 lacs.
Zarine was very happy with this development until she learnt that the song also has Vivek Oberoi.
The actress immediately backed out and gave the reason that by working with Vivek she would upset Salman.
It is understood that this girl would never want to upset her mentor with any wrong moves.
When Zarine came to know about Vivek, she got scared and knew that she owed her career to Salman as he has helped her in a big way in entering the industry.
It is well known in the industry that Salman doesn't like Vivek Oberoi.
Salman and Vivek got into tiff over his then-girl-friend, Aishwarya Rai and the situation has remained so despite many apology statements conferred by Vivek.
Zarine had this well understood that when Salman is not ready to forgive then how can she ditch her mentor by stepping into the puddle and making things turn ugly for her.
Salman still hold grudge against Vivek and Zarine obviously doesn't want to be Salman's next victim.
