Zeenat Aman is in awe of Nagaland.

The senior actor expressed her love for the Indian state at a recent event held in the city.

"It (Nagaland) is such a beautiful place. It's clean. The people are warm and friendly. They are so talented, be it music, painting or arts."

Zeenat Aman who is the first Indian to win Miss Asia Pacific (she won it in 1970) also revealed how she felt proud of Miss Nagaland 2012 Imlibenla Wati for bringing glory to India.

Imlibenla represented India at Miss Asia Pacific World in 2016.

"I was happy to meet this young lady. She has won so many competitions internationally -- Miss Nagaland, Miss India Elite and Miss Asia Pacific India. I remember I was the first person to win Miss Asia. We are so proud of her. We are here to celebrate her success, the beauty of young women from Nagaland whom she represents," Zeenat Aman told the media.

"She is beautiful, soft spoken and intelligent," Zeenat added while praising Imlibenla who was recently appointed Global Ambassador of Miss Super Talent World (formerly Asia Pacific World) 2019-20.

While thanking the actor for her kind and praiseworthy words, Imlibenla Wati talked about her career journey and how Zeenat Aman inspired her.

"I was tomboyish as a child. Glamour was never my forte. But by God's grace, I came from a small town in Nagaland and made it so far. I'd never even imagined this in my dream."

"She (Zeenat Aman) is one of my favourite actors, the most elegant woman I know. I have seen her in films but she is more beautiful in reality. Interacting with her for a few minutes has given me such confidence."
