Meena Shorey .. lara lappa fame girl ..From being the heart throb of India (being known as the 'Meena Shorey died lonely and forgotten in 1989. Her burial was arranged with charity money and few came to attend her funeral.
(at her peak) to begging at a film function in the 1980s in Pakistan for money to marry off her sister's daughters, Meena Shorey's is the classic riches-to-rags story one often finds in the filmline, the world over.

She was born Khursheed Jehan, the second of four children, in Raiwind in a small rural household. Her father was based in Multan but due to his wayward ways, he lost whatever land the family owned. He tried his hand in the dyeing business in Lahore but that too failed and to make things worse for the family, he used to brutally beat his wife. Meena's elder sister, Wazir Begum, married and shifted to Bombay and she got Meena and their mother to move there as well.

In Bombay, she accompanied her brother-in-law to the mahurat of Sohrab Modi's Sikandar (1941). Modi, taken in by her beauty, offered her a supporting role in the film and bound her to a contract to work exclusively for him. He also gave her the name Meena. Sikandar did extremely well and Meena was on her way. Modi then cast her as the second lead in Phir Milenge (1942) and Prithvi Vallabh (1943). In the last named, she was paired opposite Al Nasir, whom she later married. The marriage did not last very long due to Nasir's womanising ways.

Meena hit the apex of her screen career with Roop K Shorey's Ek Thi Ladki (1949) co-starring Motilal. The film, a comedy thriller, looks at a girl (Meena) on the run after she witnesses a murder and shows a new facet of Meena exploring her comic talents, which were considerable. But above all it was the popularity of the song Lara Lappa Lara Lappa that was chiefly responsible for the film's success. The song was hummed in every nook and corner of the country and as mentioned, Meena became known as the 'Lara Lappa girl!' She also got married to Roop K Shorey becoming Meena Shorey.
Meena's most successful film in Pakistan was Sarfarosh (1956) co-starring Sabiha Khanum and Santosh Kumar. she still made a strong enough impact in the film and perhaps the best song in the film, Teri Ulfat Mein Sanam, sung by Zubaida Khanum was picturised on her. She also became the first Pakistani actress to model for Lux soap, thus becoming the 'Lux Lady of Pakistan.'

Meena lived the last few years of her life in abject poverty in Pakistan. She had no savings and was reduced to living in a couple of rooms in Lahore's Mohni Road. There was no one to look after her and she subsisted on a small stipend paid to her by the Pakistan Arts Council and sometimes the Rotary Club.

Meena Shorey died lonely and forgotten in 1989. Her burial was arranged with charity money and few came to attend her funeral.
