It was a moment of great honor for Zeenat Aman when she traveled to Oslo to attend a prestigious film festival. On this remarkable occasion, she was felicitated for her significant contributions to Indian cinema. However, what made this recognition even more special was the fact that Norway's Postal Department decided to pay tribute to her in a unique way—they issued a special stamp in her honor.
In her latest post, Zeenat Aman revealed the story behind these commemorative stamps, reflecting her genuine surprise and delight at the gesture. She wrote, "I was thrilled by this novel gesture of appreciation, but wasn’t sure whether the stamps would actually work. So the very next morning, I bought a ream of postcards, wrote out messages to my friends, slapped a ‘Zeenat Aman’ stamp onto each, crossed my fingers, and dropped the cards into a postbox.”
She continues writing, “some weeks later, when I was back in Bombay, I began to receive texts and calls from my friends. All of whom were exclaiming with delight, having received my postcards in the mail!”
She concluded saying, “I suppose a limited number of these stamps were released and that they are out of print now. I’ve kept my few remaining sheets carefully though, since I really did feel honoured by this gesture."
The post resonated with fans and admirers, who poured their appreciation for the Norwegian Government's unique tribute and Zeenat Aman's enduring charm.ALSO READ: Zeenat Aman's ode to "Dev Saab" on late actor's 100th birth anniversary
