Zeenat talks about her first day on set

She also wrote, "Let me rewind a little further and share an anecdote. The very first day that I walked onto a set in 1970, I looked around and was taken aback by how dull it all was. Wires snaked across the floor, heavy camera machinery was propped up on rusty trolleys, men ran hither and thither shouting instructions and ferrying supplies. It was nothing like I had imagined."

You were my favourite and still are." Chitrangda Singh said, "You’re so cool! You can make any era look glam!" Farah Khan commented, "You're still the glamour."
