    Recently, Bidita had shared a sneak-peek of her character and captioned, "It's going to be an action-packed International Women's Day on #ZEE5."

    The show is directed by Aditya Sarpotdar and produced by Sai Deodhar. Aditya said that the idea behind The Sholay Girl was to celebrate Women's Day in a different way. He was quoted by as saying, "We have never actually seen how the lives of stunt people are in the film industry, especially stunt women. Also, Reshma Pathan's story was very exciting and had a lot of drama."

    Apparently, Reshma began working as a stunt double when she was 14 to assist her family financially. She had a tough time convincing her parents and relatives about her choice of profession. The trailer of the show also reveals the same.

    Apart from Hema Malini, Reshma has worked as a body double for Sridevi, Dimple Kapadia and Meenakshi Seshadri.

    The Sholay Girl trailer looks interesting and engaging; and we must say that we can't wait to watch the series!
