Zarine on her early days of struggle: "In college I was really fat and weighed almost 100 kgs. So never in my wildest dreams did I or my friends think that I would enter the glamour world. I was just another happy go-lucky-girl enjoying my chocolates and junk food. However, when our family was going through financial turmoil, I became more responsible. I knew I had to take charge of the house since I had my mom and younger sister to look after. That's when I started taking life seriously and began to focus on losing weight and getting into shape. I gave up on sweets, chocolates, started serious work-out and lost a lot of weight eventually. Since I had not completed my education, I couldn't really get a high-profile job and that is when I began modeling. I did quite a few small assignments that fetched me enough money to run the house."
