Mistress of Vices
Vinod Mehta

Meena Kumari, one of the leading lights of Bollywood in the ’60s and ’70s, died tragically young. In an extract from Vinod Mehta’s classic biography of the actress, we see how Mumbai, and indeed, the rest of the country, reacted to her untimely death. We also get a glimpse of her bitterly unhappy last days, the last steps in a spiralling path of self-destruction.
