They beat up villains on top of running trains wielded a whip and a rein with equal ease and danced with elan With Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon set to release next week a look at Bollywood’s feisty action heroines and how they held their own in an industry being shaped by the political events of the time Clad in a figure-hugging short leather dress a black fedora knee-high boots and a Zorro-like mask which covers half her face Jaanbaaz Miss Julia aka Kangana Ranaut is the soul of Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming film Rangoon tipped to be a Casablanca-like love triangle featuring Saif Ali Khan as a film producer and Shahid Kapoor as a soldier As Julia Ranaut fights baddies rides a horse and shimmies with effortless ease The similarities between Julia and Fearless Nadia — who burst into popular culture in the mid-’30s with Hunterwali (1935) — are uncanny WATCH VIDEO | Kangana Ranaut: Bollywood Not Ready For Women Who Speak Their Mind An unlikely heroine Nadia whose real name was Mary Ann Evans came to India from Perth Australia in 1913 at the age of five Her Scottish father Herbett Evans a volunteer in the British army was posted in Bombay After her father’s death in World War I in 1915 she moved to Peshawar with her Greek mother There she learned horseriding hunting and shooting Once she returned to Bombay in 1928 she trained in ballet under Madame Astrova whose troupe performed for British military bases in the country as well as for the Indian royalty She even worked for a circus company before trying to get a break in movies In 1934 she approached brothers JBH and Homi Wadia founders of film production company Wadia Movietone known to make action films Nadia’s CV listed some very unusual skills: she could swim ride a horse knew a bit of ballet and was very athletic She also enjoyed gymnastics and could do perfect splits mentions Dorothee Wenner in her book Fearless Nadia: The True Story of Bollywood’s Original Stunt Queen Nadia fared miserably in her language test but her athleticism and tall figure impressed JBH He was a fan of American action heroines such as Pearl White and Helen Holmes and decided to groom Nadia Watch | Consider Myself Lucky To Have Worked With Saif Shahid In ‘Rangoon’: Kangana After a few cameo appearances which established her popularity Nadia got her first lead role as a princess in disguise in Hunterwali The film was a smash hit and Nadia as a masked crusader avenging wrongs became an instant icon It was during the muhurat of Hunterwali that Nadia earned the tag “Fearless” For the muhurat shot Nadia had to fight a bunch of baddies on a steeple roof and jump off from there Everyone in the studio held their breath but a nonchalant Nadia punched her detractors and leapt off the roof making a perfect landing on a thin mattress — the only safety measure available then An impressed Homi her future husband decided to add “fearless” to her name By then Mary Ann had already adopted the name Nadia following a fortune-teller’s advice Nadia went on to establish herself as an action star with movies likes Diamond Queen (1940) where she fights for her rights; Muqabala (1942) where she appears in a double role and showcases her dancing and fencing skills; and Hunterwali Ki Beti (1943) the sequel to Hunterwali As her popularity soared she was projected as the lead attraction in promotional materials Nadia would feature along with her horse Punjab ka beta and her Austin car christened Rolls Royce ki beti In the poster of Lootaru Lalna (1938) Nadia is described as “riding like a storm fighting like a fury and loving like a woman” Sardar Akhtar with two juvenile players in meboob’sAurat made in 1940 Express archive photo The makers of Rangoon the story of which unfolds in the backdrop of World War II in 1944 have denied modelling the character of Julia on Nadia Instead they cite a host of female actors of the ’40s as inspiration “The female actors of the time were unstoppable They did their own stunts wore leather shorts picked up men and threw them off trains before breaking into a dance Being sensual and fierce went hand in hand My character Julia is an amalgamation of all these female actors” says Ranaut So who were these actresses who turned precedents on their head and set norms of their own Even though Nadia easily outshone other stunt heroines the Indian audience had been whistling and applauding a host of them much before her arrival on screen in 1935 After her there was Madhuri (not to be confused with Madhuri Dixit the ’90s heartthrob) dressed in riding pants wielding a whip and revolver in Ban ki Chidiya (1938) produced by Ranjit Movietone Under this banner she acted in movies such as Toofan Mail (1934) Jamin Ka Chand (1937) and Diwali (1940) Ermeline who was in the industry since the ’20s headlined Azad Abla (1933); earlier she was the lead in Daupadi (1931) in which Prithviraj Kapoor had been cast as Arjun Jammu-born Miss Gulab featured in movies like Midnight Mail (1939) and Mr X (1939) The latter’s poster shows her as a gun-toting heroine in a black suit Romila tasted success in a double role for Wadia Movietone’s Chabukwali (1938) Though very little is known about her she seems to have been a Jewish-Indian from Calcutta; her original name was Sophie Abraham The Wadia brothers market leaders in stunt movies had always had a soft corner for American action serials “In fact the character of Hunterwali was based on the famous American stunt actor Douglas Fairbanks’s Robin Hood There is a lot of similarities between how Fairbanks and Hunterwali dress up” says Shivendra Singh Dungarpur Mumbai-based film archivist From about 1910 to the early 1920s American silent movies had actors like Helen Gibson who could ride horses drive cars and do high dives Helen Holmes performed spectacular motor feats and Ruth Ronald attempted aerial stunts In India stunt movies never became a part of the mainstream even at the height of its popularity in the ’30s “Stunt films were always regarded as C-grade meant for cheap entertainment These movies were screened at theatres where ticket prices were low Most of the gimmicks and stunts were copied from Hollywood featuring Bette Davis and others Nadia was successful because in some ways her films catered to the themes of good versus evil It was also fun to watch a white woman who was larger than an average Indian woman beat up men who looked smaller than her The Wadias also slipped in nationalistic themes whenever they could Some films for instance have Nadia beating up men dressed as British soldiers” Dungarpur adds Fire and ice: Fearless Nadia went on to become a successful star Most of these stunt movies by companies such as Wadia Movietone Sharda Films Prakash Productions Ranjit Movietone Ambika Films and Mohan Pictures were made on a low budget The idea was to churn out movies as fast as possible The shoddy production repetitive plot and lack of innovation in stunts became the undoing of these movies “With Independence society underwent a change and so did the taste of the audience Directors like Bimal Roy Chetan Anand and Raj Kapoor emerged The audience wanted to watch movies which talked about immediate issues such as unemployment poverty and migration to urban centres” says Dungarpur Film scholar Neepa Majumdar in her book Wanted Cultured
