During the KWK episode, Zeenat disclosed, “I was working with him as my co-star in a film called Vakil Babu, and he was deep into the script of Satyam Shivam Sundaram. In between shots, he would talk about his plans and excitement, piquing my interest.”

Despite her ‘western image,’ Zeenat never expected to be cast as Pujari’s daughter. She shared, “I was already an established star with a ‘western image.’ I didn’t think he would ever cast me in this role. It’s the daughter of a pujari!”

Zeenat’s initiative to impress Kapoor with her vision of the character proved successful. She dressed up as Rupa and visited RK Studios, where Kapoor, astonished by her dedication, commented to Krishna-ji, “This girl is a huge star. She doesn’t need to do this. It’s her passion for this that makes me want to give her the part.” As her signing amount, Kapoor and his wife presented her with gold guineas.

Recounting another instance, Zeenat revealed how Kapoor shot a whole reel envisioning Rupa to convince distributors of her suitability for the role. The territories showed immense interest after witnessing Kapoor’s exquisite portrayal.

Despite her on-screen presence waning after her marriage to Mazhar Khan in 1985, Zeenat remains an iconic figure in Indian cinema. The couple stayed together until 1998, blessed with two sons, Azaan Khan and Zahaan Khan.
