Veteran Indian actress Zeenat Aman says she is mesmerised by the beauty of Lahore and wishes she had visited the city earlier.
“The city is beautiful and its people are loving. I wish I had visited Lahore earlier. I want to visit the old city (walled city). Many from Peshawar starred in our film industry and Lahore too was the hub of films before the Partition. I would like to see the entire city,” said Zeenat, who is in Lahore to participate in a cultural event.
The actress, however, parried a question about her rumoured affair with former cricketer Imran Khan, saying there is no point in discussing the past.
“Let us not discuss past. Now our children are grown up. Let it be in the past.” The actress also praised Lahori food, saying she especially enjoyed eating Baryani and Saag.
Talking about peace between the two countries, she stressed upon people to people contact. “I wish the people of India and Pakistan peace and harmony. Artistes and craftsmen in both the countries must interact with each other as talent has no borders. We both have common music, culture and craftsmanship,” she added.
She said her son made a film in which a Pakistani television actor is performing. “I will return to Pakistan upon its release. Give the children same love which you have given to me,” she said.
