Irtiza Rubab[2] (born 12 May 1977), better known by her stage name Meera, is a Pakistani film actress, television presenter, model and leading philanthropist.[3] Meera started her career as stage actress and model in a very young age but later she was observed acting in Pakistani films and dramas[4] She made her movie debut in 1995, but earned nationwide critical acclaim in 1999 for her lead performance in Khilona (1996–97). For her acting in Khilona she won her first Nigar Award and received significant praise for her work. With the release of Inteha, another critical and commercial success, Meera won the second consecutive Nigar Award for Best Actress of the year for her break-out performance. In 2004, she played a prominent role in Salakhain which lifted her image internationally.[5] In 2005, she acted in a joint Indo-Pakistani film, Nazar with which she debuted in Bollywood.[6]

In 2013 election she announced to launch herself in Pakistani Politics [7][8] but later she stepped back nominating her mother as candidate for national assembly reserved seat(which her mother lost by taking 100 votes only).[9] after this she announced to build a health trust for which she is still unsuccessful.[10]

Bollywood stardom[edit]

Meera did her first movie in India, named Nazar[11] which had her as the first Pakistani actress to be seen in India like Begum Para, as well as it was the beginning of the India Pakistan peace talks. Nazar was a film directed by Soni Razdan and it was the first Indo-Pakistani joint movie venture in 50 years. The film introduced Pakistani actress Meera to Bollywood. Her second movie was Kasak[12] starring Lucky Ali. Although Kasak failed critically and commercially, Meera still kept working in Bollywood. Her third film Paanch Ghantey Mien Paanch Crore was an average grosser at the Box Office. The film was not screened for Press and Critics as the director Faisal Saif wanted to show the film directly to the audience.The film managed a decent opening of 50% with its limited cinema release. However, The Times of India listed the film in Bollywood's Top 10 Bold Films category of 2012.[13]
