Meena Kumari or Mahjabeen Bano (August 1, 1932 - March 31, 1972), was an Indian movie actress and poetess. She is regarded as one of the most prominent actresses to have appeared on the screens of Hindi Cinema. During a career spanning 30 years from her childhood to her death, she starred in more than ninety films, many of which have achieved classic and cult status today. Kumari gained a reputation for playing grief-stricken and tragic roles, and her performances have been praised and reminisced throughout the years. Like one of her best-known roles, Chhoti Bahu, in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam (1962), Kumari became addicted to alcohol. Her life and prosperous career were marred by heavy drinking, troubled relationships, an ensuing deteriorating health, and her death from liver cirrhosis in 1972 Source : Wiki

With Meena Kumari, came the grievance and pain into Hindi cinema. She was an epitome of these and a blend of talent and beauty. What she did not get in real life, she tried to achieve from her movies. She was a dreamer, a poet who found solace in loneliness and pain. The beautiful Mehejabeen, stepped into the world of grease and glamour from the tender age of six. Her first film as a child artist was Vijay Bhatt\'s \'Leather Face\' (1939). She then metamorphasised into a beautiful heroine and did some heartrenching movies like \'Baiju Bawra\' (1954), \'Parineeta\' (1955), \'Ek Hi Raasta\', \'Sharda\' (1957), \'Aarti\' (1963) and \'Kaajal\' (1966). Her other movies include \'Bahu Begam\' with Pradeep Kumar and Rehman and Guru Dutt\'s \'Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam\'. But she also did character roles as in \'Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan\', \'Mere Apne\' and \'Dushman\'. There came movies like \'Dil Apna Preet Parai\' and \'Dil Ek Mandir\' ...more
