Yester years diva, Zeenat Aman is all set to face the arch lights again, but this time for the web. She is debuting on web in a feel good comedy youth based show called Love, Life & Screw Ups!!! She is playing a super glam spinster, Joanna, who is full of life, fun and positivist. She is a non-apologetic vain and part of a chilled out group.
Zeenat has always being the norm breaker, with the kind of unconventional choice of roles from Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Roti Kapda Aur Makaan, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Don, Qurbani, Insaaf kaTarazu to Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun. Now again, when her contemporaries are walking the safe tried and tested zone of films and TV, Zeenat is venturing on web.
Since last three months, Zeenat has been on a strict diet and rigorously working out to get in right shape for the super glam Joanna.
The look of the show will be grand and glossy. It is also going to star some of the popular names from cinema and theatre along with newcomers.
Actor and writer of 11 international award winner Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun, now known as Kapil Kaustubh Sharma, has written the script and he will be debuting in direction with it.
Kapil says “Zeenat is one star, who is a timeless diva and her fans are spread all over the world! There are so many fan groups of her in abroad, who are regularly active on net. Her acting on web is great news for her Indian and international fans who were wanting to see her again. It will be a treat to see her in not only glam look again, but to see her crazy comical side again, which we saw in movies like Manaronjan, Heera Panna and Yaadon Ki Baraat.”
Though Kapil had to wait for two months before he got to meet the veteran actress. He admits that she was unsure about going digital but was hooked when she heard the concept, even remarking that “this could have been a movie!” They will commence shooting in a start-to-finish schedule in a few weeks. The show will be aired with English subtitles keeping the global audience in mind.Zeenat is taking an active interest in her styling. Her look is inspired from the ‘70s, she’ll be seen in long skirts and scarves.
Will we see Kapil act in the series as well? “There is a character for me but we are still exploring that opportunity,” he laughs.
