From travel anecdotes to iconic styles, Zeenat Aman’s Instagram posts are always a healthy dose of nostalgia.
The yesteryear actress recently took to Instagram and shared a glimpse from her Goa trip. The caption of her post read, “An easy breezy afternoon in Goa with good food, a glass of wine and my family.”
Talking about how she used to be an explorer, she wrote, “I used to be the sort of traveller who packed their itinerary with “must sees”, “must visits” and “must dos”. It was a great strategy in my youth, and allowed me to explore the world with my sons!”
But now, she’s into slow travel, “Now I am much more relaxed in my approach to travel. Lazy breakfasts, catching up on my reading, playing board games, getting a massage, stepping out for a meal, watching a good show… these take priority over any chaotic bucket list.”
Further in her post, Zeenat also went on to share an anecdote from her Italy trip, “Italy, 2005. The boys and I were spending a few days in Rome before joining a cruise. Having seen the Colosseum, we were now seated in a lovely cafe in one of the city’s beautiful piazzas.”
Recalling how a busker emptied her wallet in Italy, she shared, “At the corner of the square, an Italian busker was playing the accordion. As I spooned gelato into my mouth, I heard the unmistakable notes of ‘Yaadon ki Baaraat’! I was so charmed by the moment that I emptied my wallet into his hat!”
She continued, “To this day, I’m not sure whether he recognised me or was just playing a Bollywood tune for the Indian family at the piazza!” She ends the post asking her fans to share memorable travel anecdotes in the comments.
On the work front, Zeenat is all set to make her OTT debut with a web series titled 'Showstopper' which also stars Shweta Tiwari and Rohit Roy in pivotal roles.
