In Remembrance: Meena Kumari
The Tragedy Queen, Charmer with Words and the Unbelievably Beautiful Lady
A story of how a little girl with a soulful name “Mahjabeen” turned into a chic actress “Meena Kumari” was those days’s most tragic story. Never really interested in acting, Meena Kumari faced so many hurdles during her whole journey of becoming an actress.
It was even becoming an actress; the sadness never left her life. It is said that the life of this girl with the most unique voice and extraordinary dialog delivery skills was not less than any movie. Meena Kumari played ‘Choti Bahu’ in ‘Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam’ which is said to be her most convincing and most related role to her real life.
A girl next door born, played her part and left everything behind at an early age of 38 years due to liver illness. Wish today’s generation would have seen such a talent who had seen ultimate pain of life and yet survived till her last breath just like a pillar.
