IBNS: Bollywood veteran Zeenat Aman delighted her fans and followers ever since she joined the social networking site Instagram.

Zeenat Aman’s fashion goals have already set the internet abuzz.

She also posts old pictures with a background story, something which is unknown to many.

At 71, Zeenat Aman featured on the cover of Vogue magazine.

In his column for Vogue, Zeenat Aman shared how her “face and figure” had interested people more than her “intellect”.

She wrote, “I realised early on that the world desired youth and beauty from women in the film industry. So I leveraged my looks, but I also chose roles that pushed the envelope.

“Still, there was far more interest in my face and figure than there ever was in my intellect. This is one reason that I have loved ageing—it has evened the scales.”

Zeenat Aman has also shared how joining Instagram was a “liberating” experience for me.

“On Instagram, I have found the freedom to express myself. It’s liberating, and consequently, I haven’t accepted a single interview request that’s come my way since February,” she wrote.
