Zeenat Aman remembers her first meeting with the young melodious singer, Nazia Hasan

Taking to her IG handle, Zeenat Aman’s latest social media post was a dedication to the iconic pop singer of the ‘80s, Nazia Hasan. The legendary actress talked about her first meeting with a young Nazia at her hotel room in London, along with her mother, Muniza and brother, Zoheb. Zeenat mentioned being drawn to the family of three soon after, over their past memories from Pakistan. Moreover, after she learned that both Nazia and Zoheb were passionate about music and was keen on pursuing it, Zeenat ended up listenting to a melody from the young girl. Recalling how that was the first time that she heard Nazia Hasan’s voice, Zeenat said:

“The lady was elegant. Her name was Muniza. And with her were her two teenage children. A quiet girl named Nazia and a boy named Zoheb. I hadn’t planned to entertain them for long but soon found myself drawn into deep dialogue with Muniza. They were a charming and cultured family of Pakistani origin, and to my surprise I found myself inviting them to join me in my suite. That night I learned that Nazia and Zoheb were pursuing music, and I even enjoyed a brief demo of young Nazia’s pipes.”

Previously, through one of her posts on social media, Zeenat Aman opened up about her marriage with Mazhar Khan. She remembered eloping with him and finally getting married in a discreet ceremony in Singapore. In her words:

“My own wedding to the father of my children was a discreet affair. We eloped, and got married in Singapore in a low key ceremony with just two witnesses. But reserved as I am, I can't deny the charm and madness of the "big Indian wedding"! The food, the music, the colours, the atmosphere of revelry - it's infectious."
