Zeenat Aman, the timeless Bollywood actress, continues to grace her Instagram followers with a delightful blend of personal anecdotes and professional throwbacks. In her latest post, the veteran actress shares a funny incident from 1995 involving her sons, Azaan and Zahaan.
Recounting the memorable family holiday to Mauritius, Aman wrote, “In every parent’s life there inevitably comes a time when your child embarrasses you. The year was 1995 and we were off on a family holiday to Mauritius. I had been invited as a state guest to attend an event, and had decided to make the most of my visit by taking the boys along and extending our stay. It was a summer holiday par excellence. The resort was plush, the food was delicious, the waters were crystal clear, and the boys ran amuck. They spent the better part of each day in the swimming pool, and sure enough, by day five Azaan picked up an ear infection.”
Zeenat further added, “Fortunately there was a pristine white infirmary, with a little waiting room and a clinic, attached to the resort. Since I didn’t have a nanny, 5-year-old Zahaan had to tag along with us to his older brother’s doctor’s appointment. I left him seated in the waiting room with a colouring book to keep him busy, while I accompanied Azaan in to see the doctor. We couldn’t have been gone for more than 20 minutes. It was a relatively minor issue, and the lovely, rather serious doctor, attended to it swiftly. So imagine our surprise when we re-entered the waiting room to find that Zahaan had taken it upon himself to do a little redecorating. He had discovered the clinic’s stamp and an ink pad at the vacant receptionist’s desk and had proceeded to furiously stamp the spotless walls of the waiting room!”
“I can’t be certain whose jaw dropped further, mine or the good doctor’s. The walls were covered in the smudged violet logo of the clinic! I was horrified, but Zahaan was beaming. Not for long though. The scamp got an earful, and the doctor got my profuse apologies and an offer to pay for the damages,” Aman wrote.
“These pictures are from that trip, and this memory always evokes a laugh. Do you have a memorable story about your child’s antics? Please share them in the comments for us all to read and enjoy,” Zeenat concluded.
