They were all dashing brothers named Feroz, Sanjay, Sameer, Shahrukh. Zarine describes in one of her interviews that ‘ One morning I had gone to the beach for a walk with my friend. I saw Abbas (Sanjay’s real name) walking along the shoreline ahead of us. As if by telepathy he turned around and wrote something on the sand with a stick.

We hurried to read it’. He had written ‘Hi!’ My friend picked up a stick and wrote another ‘Hi!’ next to it. When we were walking back home, I heard this deep voice behind us, ‘Hi! Can I join you?’ My friend said, ‘Sure’. Later, after she had left, he asked me, ‘Will you have coffee with me in the evening?’ I just nodded.”

Along with this Zarine also recalled her first date with Sanjay. She described that it was sunset time when she saw Sanjay standing on the beach in a white shirt and white trouser, Kolhapuri chappals and a book by Tolstoy in his hand.

And there was she, sun-tanned, in an off-shoulder blouse and a three-tiered skirt.  She added, Sanjay was 18 and she was 12 at that time. As they walked together Sanjay told her about his life story, which mesmerized her completely.

The very next day Sanjay proposed her to which she replied in a very clever manner saying him that, if she has feelings for him even after a year she will definitely agree for his proposal. On hearing this, Sanjay was quite impressed by her and resolved that he has to make Zarine his girl.

But her boyfriend (Sanjay) was so possessive, he said ‘Either you go to London or stay with me’. On the note of this Zarine, chose to be with him and was glad to make the decision. Zarine gave up modeling at 17. The young couple had begun living in a modest flat where they had to pay Rs 400 as rent. As Rs 400 was a huge amount for the young couple to afford at that time so, they decided to sublet it to Balraj Sahani’s cousin who paid Rs 250. To this, the actress often reacts in a funny way saying, “ We had only one fan, which we shared between us”.

It all went away just as ‘a mad wind’ that blew over. However, the tempestuous saga ended immediately after the reported violent an altercation between Sanjay and Zeenat at a five-star hotel.

The media was unfair to Sanjay, according to Zarine. She said that They unnecessarily attacked Abbas. They made him out to be the evil one. I” she defends Sanjay adding gently, “Now, looking back, I feel so bad. I even said hello to her (Zeenat). Today she’s happy, I am happy, life has moved on, it’s over!”

Another Obstacle:

While this storm eventually subsided, there was yet another trial by the fire waiting for the family. It seemed as if the happily ever after the family has been cursed by someone. One after the other, the family had to face more difficult times.

On February 8, 1989, while Sanjay was shooting for the mega serial, The Sword of Tipu Sultan, a fire broke out in Premier Studios, Mysore. Sanjay suffered 65 percent burns in the accident. The doctor told the family that, ‘He’s got just 10 percent chance of survival’.

Zarine’s world had shattered. She went into the room and saw that this once good-looking man had turned into someone black and bloated. But she kept herself strong and gave strength to him. Zarine says that it was possible just because of her patron saint, Sai Baba of Shirdi who helped Sanjay pull through the 13 months of hospitalization and 72 surgeries.

She was the one who pushed him and guided him, they have grown together.” Zarine is confident that they are made for each other. “When Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, had not released, Sussanne pledged a vow of abstaining from sweets for Hrithik’s success.

Hrithik honored his commitment to her and married her soon after the release. Duggu depends on Susi solely. A wild wind may come and go, but it will never blow their home away.”

The divorce between Sussanne Khan and Hrithik Roshan had no bearing on the bond that Zarine Khan, mother of the interior decoration expert, shares with the Bollywood actor. She says they are still “mother” and “son” to each other.

Hrithik and Sussanne split in 2014 after a 17-year relationship, but the “Bang Bang” star still promoted the launch of a book by Zarine, on Twitter. He even called her “mom”.
