“It is a dream comes true for me as nothing is more beautiful and larger than life than the name Meena Kumari. ‘God resides in detailing’ is the mantra that guides us, and a subject of this magnitude warrants research. The best names from vintage Hindi film journalism have been hired to provide authentic research. We intend to start with a web series and then move onto a feature film on the gifted actress for whom the term ‘Tragedy Queen’ was coined. We are not in any hurry,” stated Kaur.
