'Aagaaz to hotaa hai anjaam nahin hotaa, Jab meri kahaani main woh naam nahi hotaa' is how Meena Kumari, the legendary tragedienne of Indian cinema describes her life. A renowned poetess and an exceptional actor, Meena Kumari debuted in Hindi films at the tender age of six with Vijay Bhatt's Leatherface in the year 1939. She made herself known as an actor with unmatched talent with another Vijay Bhatt movie Baiju Bawra in the year 1952. She won her first Filmfare best actress award for her performance in Baiju Bawra and began to be referred as 'The Tragedy Queen' thereafter. Most of her films saw her suffering to get her desires fulfilled in a cruel world. She married Kamal Amrohi as his second wife. Her role in Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, produced by Guru Dutt, where she portrayed a wife who strives to get her estranged husband return to her even at the risk of self-destruction, bears a striking resemblance to her real life. Following a separation with Kamaal Amrohi in the year 1962, Meena Kumari took to drinking heavily and lost her life in 1972 after giving a memorable performance as a prostitute in Pakeezah.
