Neelo's and the military regime..!
Neelo tried to commit suicide on February 11 after she allegedly was "kidnapped" and was forced to dance in a party honoured for Royal Guest King of Iran, Mohammad Raza Shah Pehlvi. She refused and was assaulted by the officials. Famous poet Habib Jalib payed tribute to Neelo on this bravery against a military dictator's order and wrote his famous poem "Raqs zanjeer pehan kar bhi kiya jata hai..." which latter was filmed by Neelo's husband Riaz Shahid in his super hit film Zarqa. Riaz Shahid married her after this incident.
