    I mugged up all my lines: Zeenat

    Shabana is a queen of performance: Zeenat

Veteran Bollywood Actress Zeenat ruled theatrical screens in the Hindi heartland during the 1970s. Her bold outlook combined with an innate talent made the audience throng onto the theatres. She however herself had her nervous moments while having to collaborate with celebrities with substantial fanfare. “I remember when I had just started in the film industry and Rajesh Khanna was the phenomenon. Oh my god, I mugged up all my lines so that I wouldn’t flub a single thing. I was totally intimidated by him but did I show him? Not at all. I went to him and I performed. So when I went back to my makeup room, I was like, ‘Wow. I just gave a shot with a superstar.’ I think that’s the right attitude to have,” Zeenat said in an interview with Film Companion
