Nadia came to India at the age of five, and while growing up learned many skills such as horseback riding, hunting, fishing and shooting during her stay in the North-West Frontier Province. She starred in movies like Desh Deepak and Noor-e-Yaman before getting her big break in Hunterwali.
Nadia chose her stage name as it sounded 'exotic' and in her early days as a dancer in a travelling troupe, an Armenian fortune teller suggested she change her name to one beginning with 'N'.
After she found success with Hunterwali, which showcased her stunts and talent to the full capacity, Nadia went on to star in a large number of movies performing all her stunts with ease, risking her life many a time.
Fearless Nadia will always be remembered as the original Stunt Queen of India.
