Veteran actress Zeenat Aman took to Instagram to share a nostalgic moment from her Bollywood journey, posting a throwback picture with Amitabh Bachchan from the sets of their film Laawaris. In the still, Zeenat stands elegantly in a lavender jumpsuit while Amitabh playfully swings his arms around her feet. Alongside the picture, Zeenat shared a detailed caption, reminiscing about the film and the shoot of the iconic song “Kab Ke Bichde Hue Hum Aaj.”
Laawaris, released 42 years ago on May 22, 1981, is a classic Masala entertainer that delves into the story of a man born out of wedlock, exploring themes of love, betrayal, murder, and reconciliation. Zeenat recalls flying directly from London to Kashmir to make it on time for the shoot, with director Prakash Mehra’s team of assistants stepping up in his absence. The song was filmed over two-three days in breathtaking locations, and Zeenat shares her love for jumpsuits, which were in vogue at the time, making the purple ensemble she wore in the picture particularly memorable.
Zeenat also highlights her long working relationship with Amitabh Bachchan, emphasizing their shared work ethic of being punctilious and punctual, which is a rarity in the industry. She fondly recalls Amitabh being late to set only once in all those years, leaving fans intrigued about the story behind it. Fans and fellow celebrities reacted warmly to the post, expressing their admiration for Zeenat’s grace, talent, and inspiring career.
Zeenat Aman, who recently joined Instagram in February 2023, has quickly gained a substantial following of nearly 300,000. In addition to her throwback memories, Zeenat has exciting projects lined up, including the film “Margaon: The Closed Case” and the web series “Showstopper,” both slated for release this year. As fans eagerly await her upcoming ventures, Zeenat continues to captivate and inspire with her iconic presence in Bollywood.
