When you people see any ultimate stunt in the film , do you ever realize that the faces behind our super stars are performing those scary and worth watching stunts ?
The faces behind the real actors should get much more admiration as our favorite stars get.
Today, let’s see those faces which are playing body-doubles for the celebs :
1. Salman Khan (Ek Tha Tiger)
This wonderful man is El Berni who played the body-double for Salman in the movie. Well, in case you are wondering who that is, you need to go back and check out the action sequences in the film.
2. Katrina Kaif (Dhoom 3)
Seems like the nimble-footed Kamli developed cold feet when it came to doing the action scenes.

The man is M. S. Balram and has uncanny resemblance to Abhishek Bachchan . he plunged into the river from the top of a mountain in the direction of Mani Ratnam.
5. Aamir Khan in (Dhoom 3)
I’m sure even if the stunts were 100% safe to perform, this time Aamir decided to put the ball in the stuntman’s court .
6. Akshay Kumar (Chandni Chowk to China)
As far as the scene of stunt goes Khiladi Kumar loves to do it himself but in the film “Chandni Chowk To China ” he had a body double who performed for him.
7. Priyanka Chopra (Mary Kom)
They hired a boxer so that Priyanka’s blows looked as similar as possible to that of the real Mary Kom.

Hrithik did most of the stunts by himself for the film ‘Bang Bang’ but after injuring himself while filming ,he needed someone to perform for him.

Among the many films where Reshma has played a body double, the most iconic has been Sholay.
12. Rani Mukerji (Mardaani)
Rani chased down a gangster on a bike and beat the shit out of him. Good job, stunt double.
13. Shah Rukh Khan (Don)
Just before SRK’s double takes down Boman Irani in the final scene of Don, he decides to share a smoke with King Khan.
14. Shah Rukh Khan (Chennai Express)
In the film , this guy made the efforts to beat gets beaten up by the South Indian goons.
15. Meenakshi Sheshadri
It’s Reshma again. She was paid double the money as a stuntwoman as opposed to playing a junior artist.
16. Ranveer Singh (Bajirao Mastani)
Ranveer Singh’s body-double in the film was this guy . He did a superb job indeed.
We all should have a soft corner for all these men and women , who just play the body double without any identity .
