Zeenat Aman’s Special Post For Dimple Kapadia, Says She Publicly Stood By Me

Zeenat Aman shared a picture of her smoking with a disclaimer. There is Dimple Kapadia in the frame. Zeenat lauded her friend and actress Dimple in that post.

Actress Zeenat Aman always shares some nostalgic stuff on her social media since the actress started using Instagram. On Tuesday, May 14th, the actress shed light on her retro image where she is smoking. The image also features another veteran actress, Dimple Kapadia. Zeenat didn’t share the post to laud her co-actress, but she shared the post to reflect on her bond with Dimple Kapadia. 

The photo consists of three people, on the very left, it’s Dimple Kapadia, filmmaker Joy Mukherjee at the centre and Zeenat on the very left, crossing her legs and smoking casually. In the caption, the Don actress wrote, “I can’t recollect where this picture was taken, but it quite certainly had something to do with the film Chhailla Babu. Perhaps it’s a bts shot from the set. I say this because while the chairs scream “production”, I’m in my own clothes not a costume. With me are the director of the film Joy Mukherjee and the effervescent Dimple Kapadia, who must have been visiting set as she was married to the lead actor.” Zeenat and Rajesh Khanna collaborated with Joy for the film ‘Chhailla Babu’ released in 1977.

Zeenat remembered Dimple’s entry into Bollywood. She continued further, “Dimple and I both got big career breaks thanks to Raj Kapoor. She as a teenager, when she was cast in and as Bobby. Whereas I was able to deliver a blow to my “western image” thanks to SSS.” Zeenat mentioned the reason behind posting this photo on, saying, “This isn’t a post about Dimple’s talent though she has that in spades, it’s about the little I saw of her character.”

Satyam Shivam Sundaram actress, and Dimple never really shared a screen as such but somehow had good relations with each other, Zeenat wrote. She captioned, “During a very difficult phase in my life she was one of a mere handful of people who publicly stood by me. This despite the criticism and scrutiny of her own life that the decision invited! In those trying times she revealed to me a strength of character that I admire to date. I don’t believe she is on Instagram, but perhaps  @twinklerkhanna will pass on my love to her. Truly, a wave of appreciation washed over me when I found this picture some days ago.”

Roma from the Don at last cautioned her fans about smoking as she was an occasional smoker and when she got pregnant for the first time she left the habit. She stated, “On another note, please don’t be influenced by my smoking in this image! I’ll admit I enjoyed a few cigarettes a day between my late teens and early 30s, but that all went out of the window the minute I became pregnant with my first born!” Zeenat Aman is now a mother of two, Azaan Khan and Zahaan Khan.
