Following the complaint the actress filed at the Juhu police station, a lot more is known now. Sources close to Zeenat tell us more about the trials and tribulations faced by the actress.

More sordid details from Bollywood’s former diva, Zeenat Aman’s association with an entrepreneur have come to light. The actress filed a harassment complaint at the Juhu police station on Monday.

The heartthrob of millions in the ’70s was not only harassed and abused but also cheated. According to reports, the male friend walked away with all her savings and has harassed her in innumerable ways.

Neighbours in the building where Zeenat stays have harrowing tales to tell of her abuse. “He would visit her any time of the day or night. Since the watchman was instructed not to let him into the premises of the building, he would threaten the watchman and force his way in. He used to even go to the extent of hurling abuses at her from the compound,” says a neighbour.

Luckily for Zeenat, her neighbours have rallied around her during this hour of crisis.

A friend of the actress says, “There has been no attempt to ostracise, condemn or mock her for the disturbance of peace. On the contrary, Zeenat’s neighbours share her outrage and have signed a petition asking that the man be legally prohibited from stalking her.”

Apparently, the fraudulent entrepreneur first tried to establish contact with Zeenat through the phone. However, when she blocked him from her list, he tried visiting her home. When he was kept from doing so, he began monitoring her moves from outside her building.

“It came to a point where it became next to impossible for Zeenat to step out of her home,” complaints a friend of the yesteryear star. “Every time that she went out, he would be waiting for her. He would try to stop her car, force himself into her vehicle even as horrified neighbours stared in disbelief and shock. When he failed to establish contact in this way, he hurled abuses at her from outside her home. Zeenat was badly shaken and very scared too. Her two sons wanted to teach the stalker a lesson, but Zeenat stopped them from physically assaulting her tormentor, for in doing so, they would be weakening her case. She has now gone to the cops and they are taking remedial action,” continues the friend. However Zeenat’s ordeal is far from over.

“All her savings are gone. The man conned her into parting with her money pretending to invest it into real estate. By the time Zeenat woke up to his game, it was too late. While she has been assured that some, if not all of her finances will be restored to her, all Zeenat really wants at this point of time is to get back to a normal life with her sons,” her friend tells us.
