Wednesday 27 March, 6.00pm | The Mayfair Hotel, London
9.00pm UK Premiere: Hamid
The UK Asian Film Festival Opening Gala Launch welcomes the trendsetting actress, beauty queen and reigning star of 1970s – the revolutionary Zeenat Aman!
Aman will share her extraordinary journey in Indian cinema with British presenter Anushka Arora. In an era when heroines were obedient wives and lovers on screen, she was drawn to more unconventional roles. No one can ever forget the disenchanted pot-smoking hippie (Hare Rama Hare Krishna), the opportunist who leaves her unemployed lover for a millionaire in Roti, Kapda, Aur Makaan, the girl who falls in love with her mother’s one-time lover in Prem Shastra, and a woman married to a caustic cripple but involved in an extramarital relationship in Dhund. Equally, her conventional films like Chori Mera Kaam, Dostana, Lawaaris and Qurbani are considered to be landmarks in Indian cinema.
Tickets for the UKAFF Opening Night Gala includes In Conversation with Zeenat Aman and the UK Premiere of Hamid.
