Born on August 1, 1933 as Mahjabeen Bano, she is popularly known as Bollywood’s original Tragedy Queen. Her father was a Sunni Muslim named Master Ali Bux who had migrated from Bhera (now in Punjab province of Pakistan). Meena Kumari’s mother Iqbal Begum, whose original name was Prabhawati Devi, was a Bengali Christian converted to Islam.

She was born into a family of poor theatre artists and started acting at four.

Some of her notable films include Pakeezah, Baiju Bawra, Parineeta, Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Foot Path, Dil Ek Mandir and Kaajal.
