Mumtaz recalls wearing bikini for Apradh: “I had a complex about my typical heavy Iranian thighs”

en Bollywood News Mumtaz recalls wearing bikini for Apradh: “I had a complex about my typical heavy Iranian thighs”

Mumtaz remembered that Feroz Khan promised to delete the scene if she disapproved of it.

Veteran actress Mumtaz recently opened up about her experience of wearing a bikini in the 1972 film Apradh, co-starring Feroz Khan. While sporting swimwear on screen is commonplace today, it was a bold move for actresses back then.

Mumtaz trusted in Feroz Khan’s vision

In a recent interview with Zoom, Mumtaz revealed that her decision hinged on Feroz Khan's confidence in her. "Being a top heroine at the time," she said, "I could afford to say, ‘Mujhe nahin pehena hai bikini’ (I could afford to say no, I don’t want to wear a bikini). I didn’t want to wear a bikini, but I said yes only because of Feroz Khan. He promised me that he would edit out the scene if I didn’t like it.”

Overcoming self-doubt

Mumtaz admitted to insecurities about her physique. "I wore a bikini for Feroz Khan. I didn’t have confidence, but he had confidence in me. I had a complex about my typical heavy Iranian thighs," she confessed. She further added, "He promised me, ‘Agar tujhe accha nahin laga toh main hata doonga‘ (I will delete the scene if you disapprove of it). I knew I could trust him. If he promised me that he would cut the scene if I disapproved of it, I was sure he would not betray me.”

A positive outcome

"When I saw the scene, I felt that I was looking very nice," Mumtaz said. The positive experience, however, didn't translate into a love for bikinis. "Later, I was approached by many producers with roles that demanded that I don the outfit, but I said no. Never wore a bikini after that," she clarified.

This interview comes amidst Mumtaz's comments regarding actress Zeenat Aman's stance on live-in relationships. Mumtaz expressed concern about the advice, believing it clashed with traditional values.
