Mumbai: Yesteryear Bollywood actress Zeenat Aman has been active on social media since her Instagram debut. She has been using the opportunity to set several narratives straight and pour her heart out to her fans.
The actress recently talked about iconic characters played by other actors that she would have loved to play. She listed nine characters - "Tanya McQuoid in White Lotus, played with dotty perfection by Jennifer Coolidge; Rosie in Guide, played by the ever graceful Waheeda Rehman; Anarkali in Mughal-e-Azam, played exquisitely by Madhubala; Cesira in Two Women, played so unflinchingly by Sophia Loren; Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada, played with icy nonchalance by Meryl Streep; Shashi Godbole in English Vinglish, played masterfully by Sridevi; Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, seductively voiced by Kathleen Turner; Miss Piggy in The Muppets, voiced by various artists over the years; and And… by popular demand and for my own amusement - Moira Rose from Schitt’s Creek, played by the brilliant Catherine O’ Hara."
She clarified that the actresses who play these roles did an outstanding job. "I just have to appreciate the acting prowess of all these women. They gave us characters that will resonate for decades."
She ended the post by asking people who are the female characters in cinema and TV that have inspired people. "Don’t be shy to be creative with your suggestions!"
She also shared a photograph in which she was wearing a black dress with a pearl necklace. She called it a look inspired by Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn. "Good morning, everyone. How do you like this look? I find it quite Hepburn inspired! As a model and actor, creative collaborations are so interesting because you get to see yourself as others see you. It also involves trust and patience. Speaking of Hepburn has me thinking about all the talented actors whose work I’ve enjoyed over the years."
