Zeenat Aman will marry again after her sons settle down

Zeenat Aman who turns 63 today, says she is ready for love and marriage again.


“Of course I want to settle down with someone once again. Why wouldn’t I? You see, all these years I’ve single-mindedly focused on my sons Azaan and Zahaan. Their well-being and happiness are all that mattered to me while they were growing up. Now that they have matured and have a life of their own, I can begin to think about my own life once again,” says Zeenat with a laugh as she takes on her 60s’ headlong.


During her heydays, Zeenat worked round the clock to become one of the most sough-after actresses in the 1970s. Her marriage to Mazhar Khan in 1985 considerably slackened her work-pace.


Says the yesteryears’ femme-fatale, “You must understand I worked relentlessly for 15 years. When I got married I had reached a sort of saturation point. I wanted to focus on my marriage, husband and then the two boys. Now my sons are grown up and have a life of their own. They are both multi-talented. The older one has graduated. The younger one is qualified in the culinary arts, and in music and acting. Let’s see which way they go. At the moment their future is fluid.”


Zeenat describes her own state of the heart as also fluid. She won’t admit having someone in her life. But readily admits to being ready for love and marriage in spite of being singularly unlucky all her life in matters of the heart.


“I hold no grudges against anyone. I believe there are good people out there. And I believe there is always room for love and companionship,” says Zeenat.


She admits she isn’t that hopeful about her career. “There are just that many roles for actresses my age. In fact, the opportunities are almost non-existent. For better or worse I can’t chase work. I never have done that. I choose from whatever comes my way.”


Zeenat hasn’t had much luck with the quality of roles in recent times. But she isn’t complaining. “I will do another film now only when it’s something worth my while. I don’t need to act just for the heck of it.”


Birthday this year was just the family. “It was a quiet affair. We were at home. Last year for my birthday my sons and I had gone to the Ranthambore sanctuary. That was greatly enjoyable and exciting. This year I just wanted to be with my sons. They are now busy with their own lives and may soon not have time for me.”
