From sleeping in a gurudwara, to running away from situations where people tried to involve her in sex trade – Geeta had seen it all. But she never stopped fighting and never allowed herself to be discouraged. Today, this courageous woman with an amazing attitude is a successful Bollywood stuntwoman. She has been the body double for actresses like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu and Parineeti Chopra.
