Zeenat Aman has revealed that British actor Rex Harrison advised her to get married.
Taking to her Instagram, the veteran actress shared a throwback picture of herself from the 1977’s special religion event of her film Shalimar by revealing the story behind it.
In the caption, She wrote: "The year was 1977, and the cast and crew of Krishna Shah’s Shalimar had gathered at the Turf Club in Mumbai for the film’s ‘mahurat’. It was a packed, high profile event and everyone was dressed to the nines."
She further wrote: "My glorious silver gown was created by renowned costume designer Mani Rabadi based on a design of my own making. Its plunging neckline and sleek silhouette certainly turned some heads. In fact, Mani literally sewed me into the gown to give it that exquisite fit."
"We had several international actors in attendance that day, including Gina Lollobrigida. She later backed out of the production, amongst swirling rumours that we had locked horns," she continued.
The 71-year-old actress claimed: "British actor Rex Harrison wasn’t at the event, but he was in the film. One day on set, he told me - “A beautiful girl like you should get married immediately”. I had a good laugh over that. And for the record, I think that’s a terrible reason to get married."
"Shalimar didn’t quite dazzle the audience, but it was a thrilling adventure all the same. We shot the film in both English and Hindi, shooting each scene twice over," she added.
