11 Facts About India’s Biggest Action Star, Fearless Nadia Whose 110th Birthday Google Is Celebrating Today
Stunt work is the lynch-pin for any decent action film. But Fearless Nadia was certainly the lynch-pin for female-led action films in India.
During the British Raj, an Indian woman in skimpy clothes kicking-ass on screen might not have been too acceptable. Which is where the Australian Mary Ann Evans and her screen persona Fearless Nadia stepped in. With her blonde hair, blue eyes and imposing frame, she became the exception to the rule.
A woman who was anything but a damsel in distress. A stunt-woman and thrill seeker, Nadia was a breath of fresh air in a sea of male-driven films. Which is why we’re excited that Google decided to celebrate her 110th birthday with a doodle all her own.
