In the 70s and early 80s, Zeenat Aman was a trendsetter. She was the most deserved woman in India. She was called the beauty queen. According to several polls conducted in the 70s, she was the hottest girl in India.
Now she is 67. She has a visible scar on her left eye. She tried to hide it using sunglass. How did she get the scar? Was it an accident? No. She was beaten up.
This beauty queen fought villains in movies but in real life, she was very naïve and weak.
She could have married any wealthy man in India. But she married Sanjay Khan who was already married and father of three children. In fact, there was doubt if they could be legally married.
The most terrible thing in her life happened in early 1980. Sanjay used to beat Zeenat Aman often. But in Hotel Taz, she was very brutally beaten up.
She went to meet Sanjay at a party in the hotel Taz. That made Sanjay very mad. Sanjay took Zeenat into the adjoining room that had a connecting door. Everyone who joined the party heard him talking shouting on Zeenat. Those coward guests were passive audiences.
As soon as they entered the room, Sanjay started behaving like a beast. He did not give Zeenat any chance to speak. He shouted using local vulgar and started beating her brutally. She accused her to sleep with her brother Feroz Khan and was beating her more fiercely. Sanjay lifted her by the neck and flung her out.
He kicked her and she fell down on the floor. He took her hair and hit her head forcefully. Her hairdresser tried to rescue her. Then his wife Zarine Khan entered the room. She joined her husband to beat her.
She was admitted had to be in hospital 8 days. It is believed that Zeenat got the scar permanently after this beating.
In the end, her hairdresser somehow rescued her and took her out. Zeenat was bleeding but no man helped her. If the hairdresser would not help her, the situation could be worse. All guests heard her crying but none showed guts to save her.
Zeenat never reported the incident to the police. She said, that she loved the man. She would not do him any harm despite she was brutally tortured. She was such obsessed with Sanjay Khan.
Her second husband Mazhar Khan was not any better. He was an alcoholic and he, also physically abused her. When Zeenat Aman was pregnant Mazhar used to sleep with other women.
He beat her up when she protested. Sometimes he tortured her so much that she was treated at hospitals.
Some people believed that it was Mazhar who caused the scar. Because they did not see the scar before she was married to Mazhar. But it is more likely that Sanjay Khan did the terrible thing.
The girl who was crowned Miss Pacific had so so much tragic life
