Meena Kumari, one of the finest actresses of Bollywood, continues to mesmerise Hindi cinema aficionados across the globe. The ‘tragedy queen’ was a soulful, poetic and timeless beauty, who symbolises love, loneliness and melancholy for generations of cinema lovers. In 30 years of her career, she saw many ups and downs. Starting her career at the age of 7, instead of going to school, she found true recognition as a heroine after Baiju Bawra (1952). Today on Meena Kumari’s 84th birth anniversary, we remember the Pakeezah actress through her top films.
