Meena Kumari’s 87th start anniversary: A take a look at her bond with Dharmendra – bollywood


Any reference to widespread Indian cinema can be incomplete and not using a reference to legendary actor and tragedienne of the Indian silver display, Meena Kumari. Born Mahjabeen, the actor began out as a baby actor, aged solely 4, in a movie referred to as Leatherface. Named Meena Kumari by well-known director Vijay Bhatt (no relation of Mahesh Bhatt), she made her debut as a full fledged heroine at a young age of 13 with a movie named Bachchon Ka Khel. From then until her loss of life in 1972, she was a tour de drive in Hindi cinema. Along with her performing prowess and display persona, she was unmatched. In movie after movie, her tragic characters spoke of the damaged desires of a complete technology of women and men. She was a star from the phrase go.

 

But Meena’s private life was a multitude, it had all the time been. Whereas a good bit has been written concerning the breakdown of her relationship together with her father Ali Bux, a theatre and movie tabla artist, and later together with her husband, director Kamaal Amrohi, her alleged affair with veteran actor Dharmendra is comparatively much less identified. Fortunately, in books written on each the artists, we get a glimpse of what should have transpired between the 2.

 

A notion stays {that a} younger Dharmendra, struggling to ascertain himself within the Hindi movie trade, used her as a stepping stone to maneuver forward in his profession. Seems like that notion is however a notion. First the info – the 2 met for the primary time in Hrishikesh Mukherji directed Purnima and subsequently went on to work in movies like Kaajal, Chandan Ka Palna, Majhli Didi, Fundamental Bhi Ladki Hoon, Baharon Ki Manzil and Phool Aur Patthar. Of those, solely the final one was a field workplace success.

 

In a e-book named ‘Dharmendra: A Biography, Not Simply A He-Man’ by Rajiv M Vijayakar, excerpted by NDTV, the writer claims that Meena Kumari episode was the “first unlucky involvement that occurred in Dharmendra’s life”.

“Many of the trade believes – and maybe, rightly so – that it was the star-crossed actress, bereft of sufficient love and affection in actual life, who took a elaborate to the strapping younger man she had come to know because the time they started capturing for Purnima. This movie was adopted quickly by Fundamental Bhi Ladki Hoon (which was launched first), Kaajal (not reverse one another) and Phool Aur Patthar, with which Dharmendra, on a fast ascent, zoomed into the highest echelons. Three extra movies adopted – Chandan Ka Palna, Majhli Didi and Baharon Ki Manzil, however all of these bombed,” the e-book explains.

Her marriage to director Kamal Amrohi had ended by 1964, which in flip, had deeply scarred a delicate Meena.

In his e-book, veteran journalist Vinod Mehta talks of the primary assembly between the 2 in his much-referred to biography on the late actor. “The movie they have been signed on collectively was referred to as Purnima, and Dharmendra would go round asking, ‘What’s Meenaji like?’ He was petrified on the prospect of going through her in entrance of the digicam. Solid reverse a longtime star, the novice was involved. Having acquired his break, he should on the one hand show himself in his personal proper, and on the opposite extract a quantum of respect from the established star,” an excerpt in Open journal reads.

The 2 got here nose to nose for the primary time “at Chandivili throughout out of doors shoot” he provides. He mentions how Dharmendra reacted to the assembly; how he was a “bit nervous and apprehensive” however was blissful as “she was heat and pleasant and welcomed me with variety encouragement”. Meena, nonetheless took a elaborate to him from the phrase go. Vinod quotes her saying “This boy will rise. He’s not the routine entry.”

 

Vinod goes on to speak about what Meena for searching for: “Coincidentally, at this specific second of her life, Meena Kumari required a secure and devoted man: huge and robust, somebody on whom she might actually relaxation her head, and somebody who was not too well-known”.

The e-book explains in nice element how to start with it was solely about work; how she would enact his scenes for him and clarify in nice element the nuances. All this is able to additionally instil confidence in an ‘unsure youth’. Quickly, Dharmendra grew to become an everyday at her Janki Kutir residence.

Opposite to widespread perception, Dharmendra didn’t encourage her to drink extra. On the reverse, he might have stopped her from doing so. The e-book reads: “Dharmendra was virtually a every day customer at Janki Kutir. Collectively they’d open a bottle and spend a number of hours. These have been the nice instances.”

“Like all good Punjabis, Dharam then and nonetheless enjoys his booze; however it’s a lie that he persuaded or pressured Meena to drink… If something, he was sad about her ingesting and tried to cease her. He practically succeeded: whereas Dharam was round, Meena’s imbibing was restricted, as soon as he left it was rampant. Dharam was the whole lot she needed then: sincere, dependable, massive, loving and comforting…”
