Meena started her career in 1982 as a child artist in the film Nenjangal, featuring Dr Sivaji Ganesan in the lead role, after Ganesan saw her at a birthday party.. She says of Ganesan that "I feel extremely proud to have been discovered by the legend.". Since, she has appeared in over 45 films as a child artiste.

She made her debut in Tamil in Oru Pudiya Kadhai, and also stars in Telugu and Kannada films. Her first role in Malayalam that gained attention was in Santhwanam. Meena has expressed a wish to do more films in Malayalam. She says of her transition from being a child star to being a heroine that "Memories as a child are really fabulous and I still cherish them. And it is still more special as that phase is over. Now, I am enjoying my stint as a heroine."

She has played the role of leading heroines in Tamil and Telagu films since the early 90s, often playing characters without negativity or grey shades.
