Zeenat Aman was not Dev Anand's first choice for 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna'

In the 70s, there used to be a huge demand for movies by actress Zeenat Aman. The actress worked in more than one movie. She was paired with many veteran Bollywood actors. Even though the actress is away from the industry today, her fans still appreciate her movies. Very few people would know that Dev Anand was the one who stabilized Zeenat Aman in the film industry.

Zeenat Aman started her career in 1970 with movies like Hungama, Hulchul. But he got recognition in the industry with ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’. This film gave flight to his career. Zeenat Aman is said to have been Dev Anand’s discovery for this film. While Mumtaz was working alongside Dev Anand on the film, Zeenat Aman won everyone’s hearts as the actor’s sister.

Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman worked in movies like super hit ‘Heera Panna’ after the success of ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’. The chemistry of both liked a lot in this movie. Apart from acting in the film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, Dev Anand also took the helm of directing. This movie created panic at the box office.

Though let us tell you, Zeenat Aman certainly played the role of Dev Anand’s sister in this movie, but she was not the actor’s first choice. Dev Anand had previously offered his sister in this film to actress Zahida Hussain. He wanted to work with Zahida on this movie.

According to media reports, Zahida had turned down this film. She wanted to play the lead on screen with Dev Anand. She was not ready for the role of her sister and she had turned down Dev Anand for this film. Zeenat Aman got this character as soon as Zahida turned down the movie and her luck was brightened by this movie.
