Zeenat appeared in these films
The actress wrote in the post, ‘While entering the film industry like Bollywood, every artist expects ‘Starmaker’. There is someone who tests that ability and ambition, which till now is probably visible only to the self. Very few are lucky, who got the support of this person, but I was. My starmaker was Dev Saheb. After ‘Hare Ram Hare Krishna’, Zeenat Aman and Dev Anand also worked together in ‘Hira Panna’ (1973) and then in ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’ (1974). Zeenat Aman said that she will always remember Dev Anand for his rare talent and warm guidance.
