Zeenat Aman is the latest Indian celebrity to join Instagram. The veteran actor joined the social media platform on Saturday.

She shared many candid pics with fans
For her second post on Saturday, the veteran actor added a close-up photograph and shared, “In the 70s the film and fashion industry was absolutely male-dominated, and I would often be the only woman on a set. Over the course of my career, I have been photographed and filmed by many talented men. A woman’s gaze though, is different.”
She added, “This series of pictures was shot by young photographer @tanyyaa.a_ in the comfort of my home. No lights, no makeup artist, no hairdresser, no stylist, no assistants. Just a lovely sunny afternoon together. It’s such a pleasure to see so many young women working on both sides of the lens today. I look forward to discovering more such talent on Instagram.”
Her photographer Tanya A commented, “Definitely my most cherished portrait making session. Thank you so much.” While another fan added, “Gorgeous picture. You changed the face of the Hindi Film Leading Lady. You are a game-changer, Zeenat Ji. Thank you for sharing this lovely picture.”
