Meenal Jain (born 14 June 1985 in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India) was a top 6 finalist in the on-going reality show Indian Idol 2 on Indian Television. She was voted out on 28 February 2006.
Life and career
When she was 11 years old, her elder sister, a trained , was practicing to a song ‘Piya Tohse Naine Laga Re’. The song caught the attention of young Meenal so much that she wouldn’t stop singing it and was even invited on stage by composer Ravindra Jain who had come to as a chief guest at her sister’s show. A few words of appreciation from Ravindra Jain inspired her.
With the intention to become a singer, at the age of 11, Meenal urged her parents to allow her to enter Suresh Wadkar’s training institute in Mumbai where music was taught in the guru-shishiya tradition. But after three months of rigorous training here, Meenal couldn’t take it any longer. She was so homesick that she had to leave the institute and go back to Indore. Later, she came back to Mumbai, but didn’t go back to the institute. Instead, she started learning music on her own from different people whilst completing her studies too. Her parents too supported her decision and hence her mother decided to come and stay with her. She is now living in Mumbai for last 10 years and completed her graduate studies from Mithibai College, Mumbai.Recently did shows with Sonu Nigam, Abhijeet Sawant, Amit Sana, Rex D’Souza. Presently she is co-hosting a show “Music, Masti aur Dhoom”. She also provided the singing voice for Barbie in the Hindi dub of the 2007 animated film Barbie as the Island Princess. She also sang the song Sakhi on Aamir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate’s seventh episode which was on domestic violence.

according to Swati Patil she is kiran not meenal jain.
but some youtube channels and few post says that she was meenal jain.
there is no official information.
and some says that meenal jain was also at fourth plinth event.
SO I will share my views about meenal jain.
meenal jain is really daring, fearless modern women.she knows how to break all stereotypes.
In country where woman feel embarrassment even in skirt.She went completely nude in public.Women is not object or anyone personal property .HER BODY IS HER CHOICE.she is confident in her skin.I respect her for her body positive thoughts.It is nothing related to arousal or sexual in being nude.
She is beautiful.
I think she’s braver than I am, more comfortable with her body than I am, and I assume she’s probably more opinionated than I am. She’s got a nice body, a great smile, and I wish her well.
She is not meenal jain (like few news reports claim). She is Lady God1va (Kiran), Indian origin entrepreneur & active nudist in UK. She has long history of promoting nudism & often featured in nudist magazines as well. Few years ago she offered a public appearance on the fourth plinth to promote naturism & awareness to accept in society.
This is not a first time she participated in WNBR.
She’s fearless, natural & comfortable being herself without any material things. Secondly it is nothing related to arousal or sexual in being nude, she practices that.
Third she has guts to go with her thoughts, which is a rare trait to have…
Kiran is not the only Indian participated in WNBR
