Zeenat Aman makes her Instagram debut at 71

"Laughing at places life takes me. Why hello there, Instagram," read her first post


Bollywood actor Zeenat Aman made her Instagram debut on Saturday. The 71-year-old actor describes herself as "Actor. Mother. Maverick" on her Instagram bio.

"Laughing at the places life takes me. Why hello there, Instagram," the actor wrote, in her first post.

In her second post, she recalled how the film and fashion industry in the 70s were male-dominated and said often she would be the only women on the set. Things have changed for the better, she wrote.

"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."

The actor further wrote: "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."

She said she is delighted "see so many young women working on both sides of the lens today."

She ended her second post by saying she looks forward to discovering more such talent on Instagram.
