2.Meena Kumari ----

The tragedy queen of Indian cinema left us at the age of 39 in the year 1972 due to cirrhosis of liver caused due to heavy alcohol consumption.  

Her classic contributions include Parineeta, Baiju Bawra, Saheb Biwi aur Ghulam and Pakeezah.  

She was also a poetess in Urdu and has written beautiful sad poems in her lonely days.

The saddest part was when she died, her superhit film Pakeezah was still running in all the theatres.

She didn't even get a chance to see how much people loved her and appreciated her performance in the film.
