Zeenat Aman was born in Bombay on 19 November, 1951 to a Muslim father and Hindu mother. Her father was Amanullah Khan, a writer who co-wrote the script of the fabulously weepy movie 'Pakeezah' and the all time classic 'Mugal-e-Azam'. Now I have no idea about her mom's name. If you google her mother, it returns 'the best guess is Scinda', which I find a bit funny. Who in India names their daughter 'Scinda', is it even a name? I believe her mother was somehow related to the royal Scindia family of Madhya Pradesh.
