Zeenat Aman on working with Raj Kapoor
The veteran actress shared a still from the song Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal from Satyan, Shivam, Sundaram. Talking about the song, she wrote, “Shashi ji and I in a still from the song Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal. Giant mushrooms, pink clouds, bellowing smoke, enormous flowers, sexy outfits, otherworldly props…this fantasy song sequence from Satyam Shivam Sundaram went the whole nine yards.”
Shedding light on what went behind the scenes, the actress stated, “Few people know of the drama that went on behind the scenes though. This was my first film under the RK banner, and I was not a classical dancer by any stretch of the imagination. When Rajji narrated the sequence to me, I burst into a flood of tears! I was convinced I would make a fool of my self and sink the entire film. Through hiccups and sobs I explained my predicament to him. Rajji laughed. “What will I do with you convent girls and your two left feet?” he exclaimed.”
She further mentioned how Raj Kapoor made things easy for her. Zeenat Ji shared, “He did do something of course. He instructed legendary choreographer Sohanlal to teach me mudras but not any complicated choreography. Simultaneously, genius costume designer Bhanu Athaiya created a range of sensational outfits, and art director A. Rangaraj mounted a stunning set. And thus, the SSS team created a wonderland.”
