Zeenat Aman Posts 'Griselda-Inspired' Look, Pens Note On Ageing, Cryptically Adds 'Idiotic Antics..'

The ‘70s model-turned-actress, Zeenat Aman, was considered a trendsetter back in those days. All thanks to her, Bollywood could witness the growth of westernised look and style. Zeenat was one of the most popular actresses back then, and to date, people are fans of the veteran actress due to her grace. Recently, the 72-year-old took to her Instagram account to share her thoughts on ageing.

Zeenat Aman shares that ageing gracefully is more challenging emotionally than it is physically

Zeenat Aman shared a black-and-white picture of herself on March 13, 2024, on her Instagram feed. In the picture, she was wearing an animal-printed top paired with black pants as she channelled her inner ‘Griselda’. She began her long note by saying that people often comment that the actress has aged gracefully. Zeenat further added that stardom is geared specifically towards this purpose, and physically, it is not something very extraordinary as stars have a team of people to look after them. She penned:

“I am often told that I have aged gracefully. On a physical level, it isn’t that extraordinary. The rarified atmosphere of stardom is geared precisely towards this purpose. Any “star” you see has a team of people in the wings - nutritionists, personal trainers, makeup artists, hair stylists, clothes stylists, dermatologists, dentists, sometimes cosmetic surgeons and more - working frantically to smooth their hair, erase their wrinkles, cinch their waist, and doll them up, all while the star themself projects nonchalance.”

Further in the caption, Zeenat Aman mentioned that ageing is more challenging emotionally. Moreover, she talked about her opinion on being “on trend” and how it invites clout chasers. The actress, who has worked in films such as Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Don, Qurbani, and Insaf Ka Tarazu, said that she wished most people would leave the antics of staying relevant in their youth, but that ain’t the case. Zeenat Aman added:

“Now ageing gracefully in emotion and conduct. That’s the tricky one. I know that being famous, or “on trend” as they say, invariably invites clout chasers and those desperate for a modicum of your relevance to rub off on them any which way. So what if it involves blatant lies! It’s just surprising when such behaviour comes from someone you expected better from. I wish I could say most people leave these idiotic antics behind in their youth, but alas that’s not the case. Oh well, nothing really new here. It’s the same story, just a different year.”

Netizens react to Zeenat Aman’s thoughts on ageing

Several renowned names and netizens complimented Zeenat Aman’s thoughts in her recent post. One user said, “Conduct. A rarely used word nowadays. Thank you Zeenat for writing these pieces. You deserve a column of your own.” Another one wrote, “This post is a validation that you’ve definitely aged gracefully!! Your posts are such delightful reads … simple yet profound!!” A third person mentioned, “You are such a star. Such a star. You said all that needed to be said, on so many levels. And with such grace. And chutzpah! That’s the word. Love it. Love you if I may dare say to someone I know only across a screen!”
