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. Her persona was so versatile that she was regarded as “historically incomparable” actress of Hindi cinema by Indian film critics. The actress starred in about 92 films in a career spanning 33 years. Some of her notable films include Pakeezah, Baiju Bawra, Parineeta, Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Foot Path, Dil Ek Mandir and Kaajal.

She won four Filmfare awards in the Best Actress category. She made history at the 10th Filmfare (1963), by receiving all of the nominations for Best Actress and won for her performance in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam.
