Soni Razdan defended Zeenat Aman’s take on live-in relationships and took a dig at Mukesh Khanna.

A few days ago, veteran actress Zeenat Aman had shared her views on live-in relationships on social media. She had advised young couples to live together before they got married to understand one another better. Several Bollywood veterans like Mumtaaz and Mukesh Khanna had slammed Zeenat for her views. Now, Soni Razdan, Alia Bhatt’s mother, has jumped to Zeenat’s defence. She took a sly dig at Mahesh’s remarks.

Soni took to the microblogging site X, previously known as Twitter, and wrote, “Gosh. Can’t imagine what would happen if a couple live together in a ‘live-in’ relationship and don’t get along. The mind boggles.”

Mahesh had reacted to Zeenat’s views and told Dainik Jagran, “Live-in relationships are not recognized in our culture and history. It has come from Western civilization. Zeenat Aman is speaking about the matter, and she has lived her life according to Western civilization from the very beginning. This is not acceptable in Indian culture. Just imagine if a boy and a girl live with each other like husband and wife before marriage, and they do not get along well, then imagine what will happen to both of them. Those who are saying such things should think before speaking.”

For the unversed, Zeenat Aman had expressed, “On a different note, one of you asked me about relationship advice in the comments section of my last post. Here’s a personal opinion I haven’t previously shared – if you’re in a relationship, I strongly recommend that you LIVE TOGETHER before getting married!”

“This is the same advice I’ve always given my sons, both of whom have had, or are in, a live-in relationship. It just seems logical to me that before two people get their families and the government involved in their equation, they first put their relationship to the ultimate test,” she continued.

“It’s easy to be the best version of yourself for a few hours a day. But can you share a bathroom? Weather the storm of a bad mood? Agree on what to eat for dinner every night? Keep the fire alive in the bedroom? Work through the million tiny conflicts that inevitably arise between two people in close proximity? In short – are you actually compatible? I’m aware that Indian society is a little uptight about “living in sin” but then again, society is uptight about so many things! Log kya kahenge?” Zeenat Aman concluded.
