Indian Idol 12 has been paying tributes to several Bollywood stars from yesteryear.
Recently, veteran actress Zeenat Aman graced the singing reality show and swayed the viewers with her own performance.
According to a promo shared by the makers on social media, Zeenat Aman was seen grooving to some of her hits.
The tribute episode saw some remarkable performances from the contestants, who performed various songs that were originally picturized on Zeenat.
She also recreated a popular scene from the song Do Lafzon Ki Kahani with Danish (contestant Mohd Danish).
Danish who collected positive comments for his performance on the song Hai Agar Dushman made a request to Zeenat Aman.
He mentioned that apart from singing, he also enjoys enacting dialogues and would be honoured if Zeenat Aman could recreate the famous boat scene in Venice from the song.
The actress obliged and narrated the dialogue from the song as Danish sang the lyrics.
The song was a part of her 1979 film The Great Gambler opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
In another promo video, she can be seen giving contestant Shanmukha Priya advice after the latter was trolled on social media for her performance.
In the video, host Aditya Narayan can be seen saying that Shanmukha is very young, hence when netizens trolled her and demanded her eviction on social media, she took it by heart. Shanmukha can be seen getting emotional in the video.
To this, the veteran actress said, "Shanmukha, please don’t cry. Don’t take it to heart. You are special. You recognize your talent. More people love you than criticize you. But kuch toh log kahenge logo ka kaam hai kehna (people will say some things). Don’t even think about it. Just march on."
Meanwhile, Zeenat Aman was most recently seen in a short but prominent role in 2019 film Panipat. She has also been appearing in smaller supporting roles in a number of films. Zeenat will soon be seen playing the lead role in Margaon The Closed File, which is being directed by Kapil Kaustubh Sharma.
