Zeenat Aman, the diva of Bollywood is known for her extraordinary performances and looks that could kill. She was a popular face during her time, and many were in love with her bold personality, charming smile, and acting skills that would hold captive the audience every time.
Apart from all the showbiz, it's also her personal life that grabbed headlines back in time. According to the reports in Times NOW, Zeenat Aman was dating actor Sanjay Khan in 1980. Though Sanjay was already married with three kids, his relationship with the stunning divas was the talk of the town.
There were reports in the print that Sanjay brutally bashed up Zeenat in front of his wife in hotel Taj. He thrashed her so much that Zeenat got a permanent scar on her eye. After this event, Zeenat went into the state of shock and had to be injected with anti-depressants three times a day. According to an old report, one of her doctor quoted as saying: “Zeenat was in such a terrible state. Her face was covered with bruises and black eyes. There were blood clots in her eyes and her lips were severely cut.”
Zeenat was at the peak of her career when the incident happened, but neither did she speak, nor did she report the incident and remained tight-lipped. Many years later when she appeared as a guest on Simi Frewal's chat show 'Rendezvous with Simi Grewal', she was asked about the incident to which Zeenat said, " If you are referring to the chapter in the past, it was very brief. Right now in my mind, for many years in my mind, it's been obliterated because that's what the human mind does. When there is something unpleasant, you just close your mind to it and pretend that it never happened, and you promise yourself it will never happen that's how you cope.
Even, later her relationship with Khan got over. Her personal life was no less than a roller coaster. She later married Mazhar Khan and got separated after 12 years of marriage. She revealed about her husband cheating on her when she was pregnant with her first child.
