Sorry, you've got the wrong person: Zeenat on man in her life

Mumbai, Feb 7 (IANS) Zeenat Aman has found love again, but it's not Sarfaraz Ahsan Ahmed. Puzzled and embarrassed at being linked to a person she knows only casually, she wonders how the guy has been dragged into the picture.

There were reports that 35-year-old Sarfaraz, a Shiv Sena member and real-estate dealer, is the man Zeenat is all set to marry. But the diva of yesteryears, who personified modern woman on the big screen with her roles in "Hare Rama Hare Krishna", "Yaadon Ki Baaraat" and "The Great Gambler", denies it.

"They got the wrong guy. This is not the man in my life at all. This gentleman that a section of the media has made into the man in my life is someone I've known over the years. He is part of the Shiv Sena. I met him when I attended a couple of Shiv Sena events. I've known him through his association with Bala Saheb," said Zeenat, 61.

She wonders: "Where on earth did he come into the picture (from)? And how did the media decide I was seeing this gentleman (Sarfaraz Ahsan Ahmed)? It's all too puzzling and embarrassing for me and, I am sure, for this gentleman too."

So far Zeenat has not even contacted Sarfaraz ever since their names were linked. But one now has reason to believe that the lady, not known to be messed around with, would be taking the strongest of action against those who insist on linking her to the wrong person.

Said Zeenat: "I have two grown up sons who, as I've repeatedly said, are my first and only priority in life. I don't want them, or me, to be embarrassed in public by such irresponsible games of fantasy match-making.

"The whole matter has been blown out of all proportions. I just happened to mention casually to a journalist that there's someone in my life and there may be marriage in the future. The next thing I knew I was hounded for information on my personal life."

She is in no mood to reveal any more about her personal life than she already has.

"I've said as much as I wanted to. No one can get more out of me by throwing names in the public domain. Until I am ready to reveal the identity of the person in my life, no one can get it out of me by barking up the wrong tree. So all I can say at the moment is, sorry guys, you got the wrong person," said Zeenat.
