Dev Anand's discoveries, Tina Ambani and Zeenat Aman, were also present.
The former, then Tina Munim, made her debut in Des Pardes (1978), while Zeenat made her first appearance in Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971).
When Dev Anand took to the stage, he had the crowd in splits, exclaiming that he felt young when he saw Tina Ambani, and even younger when he saw Zeenat.
