Zeenat Aman, who made a starry return as the new-age Instagrammer, has been garnering ample of fans as she shares anecdotes and memories of her glamorous life in Bollywood. The yesteryear diva is unafraid to confront affair rumours and gossips that were doing the rounds in abundance and has taken to the platform to state her opinions and set the record straight in some cases. Among them, she recently addressed the much talked about gossip about her affair with the legendary filmmaker-actor Raj Kapoor, which started after she bagged the iconic film Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978).
Zeenat Aman denies allegations made in Dev Anand’s book about her affair with Raj Kapoor; says, “I was livid. I felt humiliated, hurt and disconcerted”
Starring Shashi Kapoor, Satyam Shivam Sundaram featured Zeenat Aman as the leading lady in the film. In the biography of Dev Anand, the late legendary actor had opened about an incident about Zeenat’s alleged ‘closeness’ with Raj Kapoor which had added fuel to the fire, about her affair with the filmmaker. Taking to her Instagram, Zeenat addressed the rumour saying, “To be honest, I was livid. I felt humiliated, hurt and disconcerted that Dev saab, my much older mentor, a person I loved and admired platonically, would not only believe such a story devoid of a shred of truth, but would then go on to publish it for the world to read. For weeks my phone rang incessantly as friends inquired about “what really happened” and shared excerpts from the book. I never did read it though, and in my anger I consigned the copy I was sent to storage in the basement!”
In the same post, the actress confessed that she wanted to set the record straight. “This episode embarrassed me deeply. For years I felt unable to talk about it to set the record straight. But now, time has granted me perspective and peace. Human folly is an eternal truth, and we all fall victim at one point or another,” she added.
For the unversed, Dev Anand’s book had recalled an incident when Raj Kapoor met Zeenat Aman at a party where she was seen embracing and speaking to him in a ‘closer proximity’. In the book, Dev Saab had confessed that he was heartbroken because he was in love with Aman and couldn’t see her behaving the way she did with the filmmaker.
