Friends, once again I am here with another golden episode of Hundred years of Indian Cinema, in between distracted by many events[ festivals, retirement of Sachin and few more],I am writing  an episode gilded  with pathos and tears, an episode of tragic melodrama………..yeah friends this is the episode of our forever adorable heroine Meena Kumari ji. Born as Mahjabeen Bano Meena Kumari won the heart of thousand million Indian Cinema lovers by her enchanted acting and immense magnetism. Most of the characters she played were tragic and very much realistic which made her immensely popular.  From her thirty nine years of life span she spent thirty years in Indian Cinema as she started acting from a very early age. Her remarkable works are Pakeezah, Dil Apna aur Preet Parai, Saheb Biwi aur Ghulam, Parineeta, Aarti, Mein Choop Rahoongi, Kohinoor, Dil Ek Mandir, Kajal, Phool aur Paththar, Baiju Bawra, Bheegi Raat, Bahu Begum, Baharon ke Manzil  and many more. She was nominated for Filmfare Best Actress Award for 8 times, and won  4 times for the movies like Parineeta, Baiju Bawra, Kajaal, Sahib Biwi Ghulam. She has been liked mostly with noted film actor Sri Raj Kumar Saab with whom she shared on screen space in the film like Dil Ek Mandir, Pakeezah, Dil Apna aur Preet Parai, Kaajal, Ardhangini, even Dharmendra and Pradeep Kumar Saahab were also like with her on screen. She enacted in many versatile and unconventional role which were  equally challenging to portray on screen at that time. Saheb Biwi aur Ghulam, Pakeezah, Dil Apna aur Preet Parai to name a few. I wish I could write on and on about this great legendary actress but stopping here and posting  some of her magnificent photos below.




  1. She was Beautiful, will be standard of grace forever…
    But I admire and love Waheeda Rehman more from her era… from any era for that matter, her performance in Tesri Kasam is memory that will last forever…
