Thursday, February 25, 2016

Iconic Bollywood actress Meena Kumari's original publicity material and memorabilia, including paintings and portraits of her films, will be on display at the Womanhood Festival to be held in Mumbai.

At the event, paintings of 1972 "Pakeezah" and the 1953 classic "Daera", co-starring Nasir Khan will be showcased. Portraits of Dilip Kumar-Meena Kumari starrer "Kohinoor" and "Benazir", co-starring Ashok Kumar and Shashi Kapoor, will be on display at the event, today, at Osianama Liberty as part of the ongoing festival.

Besides, posters of "Meena Kumari ki Amar Kahani", "Phool Aur Pathar" and images of "Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam" will also be featured. The actress' films like "Pakeezah", "Parineeta" and "Daayra" will also be screened.

"She is a true icon for Womanhood & Cinema, absorbing all, breaking all, in the search to be herself... Along with Nargis and Madhubala, she represents the feminine iconicity just as ''Mother India'', ''Mughal-E-Azam'' and ''Pakeezah'' represent a different trinity of Indian cinema," Neville Tuli, chairman, Osian's Group said. Meena Kumari aka Mahjabeen Bano, starred in over 90 films in her career spanning nearly 30 years.
