FILM glossies ran the trailers long before the final showdown. In April 1998, Cine Blitz carried "the bizarre details" of the Zeenat-Mazhar divorce, listing out the darker side of Ms Aman. A month later, Stardust carried Zeenat's version of "Mazhar's Revenge". Then, on May 8, 1998, Zeenat's Hill Road home in suburban Bandra was stormed by in-laws and her furious first-born Azaan—leaving in its devastating wake shattered panes, a battered car, smashed chairs, a bruised Zeenat, her battered friend Zaheer Aslam and her shell-shocked eight-year-old son Zahaan.

Two days later a shaken Zeenat, along with close friends actress Dimple Kapadia and script-writer Honey Irani, summoned the press. In presenting her "side of the story", the famed stoic silence of the Khan couple took a severe beating.
