Veteran actress, Zeenat Aman is a prominent face in Bollywood, who is well known for her unfiltered opinions. She made her Instagram debut earlier in February 2023, and since then, she has been showcasing her dynamic persona and keeping her fans entertained. In a recent interview, the veteran actress opened up about the dating landscape of the younger generation and shared some tips for them.
In a recent conversation with Kusha Kapila on the show, Swipe Ride, Zeenat Aman shared some meaningful dating advice for the young generation and urged them to know each other well before getting into bed with them. The Dharam Veer actress mentioned that people should hold on to their physical selves and added:
“I am really sorry to have to say this but I think young people should just hold on to their physical selves. Don’t jump into the bed with the guy right away. Wait to know each other. You yourself are very precious. Don’t fritter it away, don’t throw it away.”
Zeenat further said that dating is a personal journey and one should navigate it on their own terms. Mentioning that women face so much pressure in their lives, the actress asked the ladies to go with the flow and follow their passion. However, she added that if a man is intimidated by their strong personality, they should kick him out of their life. Zeenat said:
"Dating is an incredibly personal journey, and you must navigate it on your terms. As women, we are subjected to so many pressures in life, but here’s what I’ve learnt: go with the flow, pursue your passions, experiment, cherish your relationships, and build a life that fills your soul. If a man is ever intimidated by that, show him the door. One thing I would advise young women to try to do is get financially independent and invest in themselves.”
Speaking along the same lines, the veteran actress elaborated that being financially independent enables women to pursue their goals and dreams and gives them the freedom to live their lives on their own terms. Zeenat added:
"Being financially independent isn't just about having money; it signifies the freedom to live life on one's own terms, without relying on others. It's a way to achieve fairness, make their own choices, and evolve into the best version of oneself."
Talking about her professional life, Zeenat Aman made her Bollywood debut with the film, The Evil Within, opposite veteran actor, Dev Anand. Over the years, she went on to make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry, courtesy of her ground-breaking performances in movies like Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Roti Kapada Aur Makaan, Don, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Dostana and many others.
