On the work front, Zarina will be next seen headlining the short film, Kashmiriyat. "Despite decades of playing so many roles, this one was definitely taxing and extremely indulgent, especially for the climax! I can definitely say that I had seen the film (in my head) even before it was shot! Mainly because of the rightly dramatised narration by the director. And then during the shoot, I was impacted right till the last minute. Honestly, it has still stayed with me," the actress has said talking about the film.
Zarina has starred in hit movies like Chitchor, Dil Dhadakne Do, Agneepath, Rakta Charitra.
