Zeenat Aman to star in murder mystery Margaon: The Closed File
Zeenat has been cast as the head of an Anglo-Indian family, an independent woman who is a mother as well as an entrepreneur
Veteran actor Zeenat Aman is set to star in the upcoming film, Margaon: The Closed File. The film is a murder mystery that pays tribute to Agatha Christie's work. The 69-year-old actor has been cast as the head of an Anglo-Indian family, an independent woman who is a mother as well as an entrepreneur.
Director Kapil Kaustubh Sharma says, "Zeenatji will be seen in a strong role of a woman named Sylvia. It's a complex and unconventional character with various shades."
The filmmaker, who has also written the story, refuses to divulge much details. "It's too early to talk much about the project. I have grown up on Agatha Christie's stories. This original work will be a tribute to her work," he adds.
The murder mystery, set against a Catholic backdrop, will have an ensemble cast and is expected to go on floors in March.
Zeenat Aman was last seen in a cameo role in Ashutosh Gowariker's 2019 historical drama, Panipat. She played Humayun's daughter Sakeena Begum in the film.
