It would not be wrong to say that Zeenat Aman’s Instagram timeline is a treasure trove for all Bollywood fans. From personal stories to professional learnings, the veteran actress has been sharing some gems on Instagram, gaining thousands of new fans along the way. The star’s new post too does not disappoint. Zeenat Aman has dropped two images, both featuring her alongside superstar Dharmendra. The two photos are nothing short of a spectacle. While the first image has Dharmendra dressed in a gown and Zeenat Aman in a cowboy-inspired look, the second image has them in blingy costumes. Sharing the images, Zeenat Aman also offered us context in the form of an anecdote. In her caption, she wrote, “Some personal opinions, two throwback images, and an anecdote… catalysed by the discovery of these pictures yesterday!”
About Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman said, “Of the many actors I had the privilege of being a co-star to, Dharm ji was a favourite. Yes, he was strikingly handsome, but more importantly he was a down-to-earth gentleman. There were no pretences or airs about him, and that made me feel most comfortable on set. Dharm ji and I starred in a number of films together, including the international heist Shalimar. If you recall, I previously shared that this film was simultaneously shot in English and Hindi to cater to both audiences. Well, Dharm ji required assistance with his English dialogues and I required help with my Hindi. And so, post the daily shoot you would find each of us with our respective tutors, studiously running our lines for hours!”
“These pictures aren’t from Shalimar though,” Zeenat Aman explained, adding, “The first picture here is from the song Saare Bazaar Karenge Pyar from the film Kaatilon Ke Kaatil. It’s an excellent number, with a full-fledged gender role reversal! I posted this image first because I think people should have the right to dress as they please, without being threatened or assaulted. Perhaps the picturization of the song was meant to be comical, but its message is clear – Dikha De Hum Mohabbat Mei Hai Kitna Dum. Duniya Manegi Manegi Manegi Mohabbat Aisi Hoti Hai.”
About the other image, Zeenat Aman said, “The second picture is from the film Jagir. And I chose it because our look was sizzling in this number. I had on a glittering silver jumpsuit and Dharm ji had a matching one in black leather! The song is called Naya Naya Hota Hain Purana Purana, which could be quite a good heading for an essay about my Instagram debut. Have a wonderful day, everyone.”
As mentioned above, on another occasion too, Zeenat Aman shared a throwback image from the sets of Shalimar. Sharing details, she said, “Some Saturday glam to inspire your evening plans! I’ve seen this image of myself floating around on the Internet and thought it would be good to add some context to it. The year was 1977, and the cast and crew of Krishna Shah’s Shalimar had gathered at the Turf Club in Mumbai for the film’s ‘mahurat’. It was a packed, high-profile event and everyone was dressed to the nines. My glorious silver gown was created by renowned costume designer Mani Rabadi based on a design of my own making. Its plunging neckline and sleek silhouette certainly turned some heads. In fact, Mani literally sewed me into the gown to give it that exquisite fit…Shalimar didn’t quite dazzle the audience, but it was a thrilling adventure all the same. We shot the film in both English and Hindi, shooting each scene twice over.”
Zeenat Aman is best known for her work in films such as Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Don, Yaadon Ki Baraat, and Hare Rama Hare Krishna, among others. Meanwhile, Dharmendra was seen in the recently-released Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani in a pivotal role.
