Reshma Pathan

Bollywood’s First Indian Stuntwoman, now her life made into a Zee 5 Original Biopic: Meet the ‘Sholay Girl’. Pathan joined the industry in 1968, but it wasn’t until the early seventies that she gained recognition for her stunts and known for her playing the body double to Hema Malini in Sholay. That one film made Pathan an overnight celebrity amidst the industry bigwigs. So much so, that she began to be even known as ‘Sholay Girl’.
