New Delhi: If you are an avid follower of Bollywood news, then you must have come across the war of words between veteran stars Mukesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Mumtaz. For those who missed it, Zeenat gave her views on live-in relationships and how people should live together before settling down.

The 72-year-old star stated: “Here’s a personal opinion I haven’t shared before – if you’re in a relationship, I highly recommend LIVE TOGETHER before getting married!”

Mumtaz vs Zeenat Aman

However, this did not go down well with other celebrities including our very own Shaktiman and Mumtaz. The feud started when Mumtaz responded to Zeenat’s statement about live-in relationships. She continued to hit her Hare Rama Hare Krishna co-star in an interview with Zoom TV.

The Dushman actress stated, “Zeenat should be careful about what she advises. She has suddenly become extremely popular on social media, and I understand her excitement to sound like a cool aunt. But giving advice that conflicts with our moral values ​​is not the answer to growing your following. Aap Zeenat ko hi le lo misaal ke taur par… She knew Mazhar Khan for years before she married him. Her marriage was hell. She should be the last one to give relationship advice.”

But instead of losing her cool, Zeenat responded humbly in an interview to Hindustan Times and said, “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. “I’ve never been one to comment on other people’s personal lives or put down my colleagues, and I’m not going to start doing that now.”

Saira Banu responds to Zeenat Aman’s advice on a live-in relationship

Actress Saira Banu joined the bandwagon and also responded to Zeenat’s relationship advice. She said she belongs to an older generation and in her eyes, live-in relationships are “unacceptable.” She said in an interview with Hindustan Times, “I don’t read much and I don’t really follow what they (Mumtaz and Zeenat) say, but we are very old-fashioned people. Our trend is 40-50 saal pehle ka. Iss baat se main toh sehmat nahi ho sakti hu kabhi bhi. I would never advocate such live relationships. It is something unimaginable and unacceptable to me.”

Mukesh Khanna’s cunning attack on Zeenat Aman

When everyone contributed their bit to Zeenat’s statement about a live-in relationship, our own OG Shaktiman couldn’t hold back either. Mukesh stated in an interview with Dainik Jagran, “Live-in relationships are not recognized in our culture and history. It comes from Western civilization. Whatever Zeenat Aman talks about, she has lived her life according to western civilization. It is not acceptable for a boy and a girl to know each other through marriage. If they live together as husband and wife, imagine what happens to them. Those who say such things should speak thoughtfully.”

Soni Razdan’s cheeky tweet about Mukesh Khanna

While Mumtaz and Shaktiman stood on one side, veteran star and mother of Alia Bhatt, Soni Razdan, responded to Mukesh’s statement in her own way. Taking her official X (formerly Twitter) handle, the Saaransh actress wrote, “Gosh. I can’t imagine what would happen if a couple lives together in a ‘live-in’ relationship and doesn’t get along. The mind boggles.”

Look!

Zeenat Aman’s vs. Bollywood Boomers

Looks like the feud has taken a whole new turn as Soni Zeenat has come to Zeenat’s defense. Fans on social media have also taken quite some time to criticize the ‘Bollywood Boomers’ for their outdated views on relationships and settling down. While a significant section of Zeenat’s followers resonated with her statement, several others decided to join Shaktiman and Mumtaz.

For those who don’t know, Zeenat often shares her views on love, life and mental health on Instagram. Undoubtedly, the actress has been breaking stereotypes since she made her Instagram debut. And it’s fair to say that she has created a distinct fan base among the millennials and Gen Zers of social media.
