She was also Miss Asia-Pacific in the year 1970, is blessed with a very high IQ, and studied fashion and journalism at Los Angeles. I have seen many of her interviews and movies, and she has a fantastic personality. She is a woman to be admired, and was greatly admired by hundreds of millions of Indians for over a decade. More or less a cult following.
Her rough treatment by the world is human nature manifesting, which looks for excuses to haul others down.
She overdid her seductive roles by Indian standards, and they can't handle it.
She does not act in movies anymore, has not done so in a long time, apart from two tiny appearances in the last 15 years.
The amazing thing is that the Indian masses still enjoy her old movies, but criticize her anyway for being a sexually expressive woman.
Zeenat Aman's personal life has been tragic too. Lost her father when she was 13, gave up everything for a TV actor she fell in love with, when she was in her early 30s (at the peak of her career). The marriage was unsuccessful.
The many TV interviews I have seen of her, she comes across as a remarkably decent, intelligent, strong, dignified woman who has led a very difficult life and carries her pain very gracefully. A graceful lady who seems to be as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside.
