Remembering the ‘Lara Lappa girl’ Meena Shorey on her 98th birth anniversary today.

Meena Shorey turned an overnight star and came to be known as the Lara Lappa girl after the release of the film ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1948). The highlight of the film was the hit song, “Lara Lappa Lara Lappa Layee Rakhda Addi Tappa Addi Tappa Layi Rakhda”, composed by Vinod. The song with Punjabi overtones was the trendsetter for popular songs of later years and remains so till today.
