Mumbai, Feb 24 (IANS) Late actress Meena Kumari’s classics are all set to be screened at Osianama At Liberty as part of its ongoing Womanhood festival.
Some of films that will be screened on Thursday are “Pakeezah”, “Parineeta” and “Daayra”.
“The memories of Meena Kumari reflect a deeply complex and contradictory soul which reaches out to the world to be understood and loved…,” said Neville Tuli, chairman and the driving force behind Osianama.
“She is a true icon for womanhood and 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,” he added.
Besides Meena Kumari’s film, Osianama at Liberty will also display painting of Kohinoor and Benazir portrait, and much else as part of the ongoing womanhood festival. It will continue till April 16.
