Tinseltown was abuzz with talk about Zeenat Aman's marriage proposal and speculation on her 'mysterious someone'. And then came the news that her beau is Pune-based Shiv Sena leader Sarfaraz Ahmed. But Zeenat says we've got it wrong.
Subhash K Jha has unearthed the truth. "Zeenat has found A-man. But it's not the one that a section of the media has dug up.Ever since glamour diva Zeenat Aman made it known that there was a man in her life curiosity about the lucky gentleman's identity has touched the sky.
Some enterprising television channels sprang up the name of the 35-year old Shiv Sena member and real-estate dealer Sarfaraz Ahsan Ahmed as the man Zeenat is all set to marry ...and the lucky Mr Ahmed suddenly became a celebrity in his own 'rite'.
When I spoke to Zeenat she was laughing so hard she could barely speak. 'They got the wrong guy. This is not the man in my life at all. This gentleman that a section of the media has made into the man in my life is someone I've known over the years. He is part of the Shiv Sena. I met him when I attended a couple of Shiv Sena events. I've known him through his association with Bala Saheb."
So the search for Zeenat's mysterious lover continues.
