Zeenat Aman Calls Dharmendra ‘Favorite Co-Star’
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Zeenat Aman shared throwback pictures with co-star Dharmendra, on August 8 and said he was “strikingly handsome”, and with “no pretenses or airs” which made her most comfortable while working with him.
One of the top actresses during the 1970s and the 1980s, Zeenat, 71, shared pictures of two films with Dharmendra of the 1981 film ‘Katilon ke Katil’, and ‘Jagir’ (1984).
Zeenat, who often posts throwback pictures on her Instagram account and stylish ones of herself with her silver hair, reminisced about their shooting for the 1978 film ‘Shalimar’. Since the film was shot in English and Hindi, Dharmendra required assistance with his English dialogues, while she required help with her Hindi lines. Both actors would sit with their language tutors and practice their lines.
The actress wrote: “Of the many actors I had the privilege of being a co-star too, Dharm ji was my favorite. Yes, he was strikingly handsome, but more importantly he was a down-to-earth gentleman. There were no pretenses or airs about him, and that made me feel most comfortable on set.”
