About Meena Kumari

Meena Kumari Biography

Born on August 1st, 1933 from a family with poor artistic tradition, Meena was expected to be a son. As a child, she didn’t want to follow the career of an actress but her parents still sent her to some film studios to look for a chance of work. Later, she was cast for Leatherface by director Vijay Bhatt and received Rs 25 for her first day of work. So at the age of 4, Meena had become the Bux family’s breadwinner.

In her professional life, she was called as tragedy queen of the Indian cinema and her 1957 release Sharada bagged her the Best Actress award. Several years later, she also collected a lot of success on the way to achieve glory with some dramas such as Chirag Kahan Roshni Kahan, Bhabhi Ki Cudiyan, Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai, and Sahara.

The flawless beauty of young Meena Kumari

Tragedy seemed to grab both her reel-life and real-life when her marriage quickly broke up after over 10 years of living together. As Vinod Mehta, the writer of Meena’s biography said, the actress was abused physically during her marriage to Kamal Amrohi. Since then, she took the use of sleeping pills and suffered chronic insomnia. In 1968, she was discovered to get cirrhosis of liver. The actress had to reach London for treatment but didn’t really accept the method there.

Returning to hometown, Meena spent her money to buy her own house for the first time in Bandra. After making her appearance in Pakeezah, the actress fell in serious illness and was sent to St Elizabeth’s Nursing Home. A couple of days later, she passed away on March 31st, 1972 at the age of 38.

Meena old Telugu movie

The actress appeared in the Hindi film Miss Mary and later released two more remakes in Tamil and Telugu named Missamma that received a bunch of praise for her efforts. Besides, she often starred for some Telugu TV series and gathered no fewer than honors and fame.

All in all, though she couldn't live longer to contribute more to the national entertainment industry, Meena Kumari songs and movies are great assets of all time, setting examples for younger generations to move forward.
