I have this lying around. It shouldn't be too hard to modify it to do
what you want.

autoload -U split-shell-arguments

function _split_shell_arguments_under()
  local -a reply
  #have to duplicate some of modify-current-argument to get the word
  #_under_ the cursor, not after.
  setopt localoptions noksharrays multibyte
  if (( REPLY > 1 )); then
    if (( REPLY & 1 )); then
      (( REPLY-- ))

function _showcurrargrealpath() {
  setopt localoptions nonomatch
  #zle -M "$(realpath ${(Q)${~REPLY}} 2> /dev/null | head -n1 || echo
1>&2 "No such path")"
  REALPATH=( ${(Q)${~REPLY}}(:A) )
  zle -M "${REALPATH:-Path not found: $REPLY}"
