en Bollywood News Twinkle Khanna relays Dimple Kapadia’s message to Zeenat Aman for sharing anecdote from Chhailla Babu days: “Mom says thank you for your gracious words”

Zeenat's post featured a candid picture, possibly taken on the sets of the film Chhailla Babu, and recounted a memory of Dimple's kindness.

In a heartwarming social media exchange, veteran actress Zeenat Aman took to Instagram on Monday to express her gratitude for Dimple Kapadia's unwavering support during a challenging time in her life. Since Dimple isn't on social media, Zeenat tagged Twinkle Khanna hoping the message would reach her. Zeenat's post featured a candid picture, possibly taken on the sets of the film Chhailla Babu, and recounted a memory of Dimple's kindness.

While acknowledging Dimple's undeniable talent, Zeenat's focus was on her character. She revealed that Dimple, despite facing potential criticism herself, was one of the few who publicly stood by Zeenat during a difficult phase. This act of loyalty left a lasting impression on Zeenat, who admires Dimple's strength to this day.

Twinkle Khanna, true to her social media-savvy nature, promptly responded to Zeenat's post on behalf of her mother. She expressed appreciation for the "lovely picture" and relayed Dimple's gratitude for Zeenat's "gracious words."

Interestingly, both Zeenat and Dimple received their big breaks in Bollywood thanks to the legendary director Raj Kapoor. Dimple, at a young age, was cast in the iconic film Bobby, while Zeenat's path to stardom came through Satyam Shivam Sundaram. She wrote, “I can't recollect where this picture was taken, but it quite certainly had something to do with the film Chhailla Babu. Perhaps it's a bts shot from set. I say this because while the chairs scream "production", I'm in my own clothes not a costume. With me are the director of the film Joy Mukherjee and the effervescent Dimple Kapadia, who must have been visiting set as she was married to the lead actor.”

More importantly, Zeenat revealed a deeply personal anecdote. She disclosed that Dimple stood by her during a challenging personal phase, even facing public criticism for her support. This act of loyalty left a lasting impression on Zeenat, who expressed her admiration for Dimple's strength of character. “Dimple and I both got big career breaks thanks to Raj Kapoor. She as a teenager, when she was cast in and as Bobby. Whereas I was able to deliver a blow to my "western image" thanks to SSS (Satyam Shivam Sundaram),” she added.

She wrote, “This isn't a post about Dimple's talent though she has that in spades, it's about the little I saw of her character. During a very difficult phase in my life she was one of a mere handful of people who publicly stood by me. This despite the criticism and scrutiny of her own life that the decision invited! In those trying times she revealed to me a strength of character that I admire to date. I don't believe she is on Instagram, but perhaps @twinklerkhanna will pass on my love to her. Truly, a wave of appreciation washed over me when I found this picture some days ago.”
