Veteran actress Zeenat Aman has been grabbing headlines for all the right reasons. Ever since she made her debut on Instagram, she has been winning hearts with her posts.

Calling Dharmendra ‘strikingly attractive’, Zeenat Aman revealed how the two actors helped each other with language.

Zeenat Aman recalls shooting with Dharmendra

She shared two photos with Dharmendra and gave insights about them. The actress penned a long caption and began by praising Dharmendra. Zeenat Ji wrote, “Of the many actors I had the privilege of being a costar to, Dharm ji was a 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.”

She further shares how the two actors helped each other with language. The diva continued, “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.”

Talking about the first picture, she went on to explain, “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.”

Sharing details about the second picture, the actress penned, “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.

For those unversed, Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra featured together in several movies such as Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Dharam-Veer, Shalimar, and Jagir among others.
