Miscellaneous Info – Veera (not to be confused with Veena) was a Parsi girl who made her debut in Filmistan’s Mazdoor (1945). In Shikari (1946), she played the lead opposite Ashok Kumar and in Tohfa (1947) she was cast opposite Rehman. Later, she was mostly seen in supporting roles in films including Ziddi (1948), Hamari Beti (1950), Aasman (1952), Moti Mahal (1952) etc

There is a passing mention of this actress in the Book  – Stars from Another Sky, quoted below –

“Among the people there (at Filmistan Studios), Mohsin Abdullah, tired of his monotonous, dry bachelor life was trying to start something with the Parsi girl Veera who was also a new arrival. Mohsin no longer travelled with us by second-class but invariably bought a first-class ticket to share the ride with Veera. She had a dog and Mohsin would often find himself walking her dog in and out of the train.” – Manto

Veera left for Pakistan in 1950s. Her current whereabouts are unknown.
