Spirited VJ

Here's bubbly Shenaz's take on MTV and movies


CANDY-FACED MTV VEEJAY Shenaz Treasurywala is as bubbly in real life as she appears on screen. In Coimbatore recently for "Confluence", organised by the GRD School of Commerce and International Business, she had the crowd in raptures when she stepped in through a specially-made door.

Shenaz started her career with a commercial for Gold Spot, before turning into a star veejay and trying her luck in tinsel town. Hailing from a simple, middle class family, this strong Cancerian does not let anyone influence her career.

"I am the captain of my ship," she states, adding: "I guess my mother and sister, both with a background in theatre, were responsible for my foray into MTV."

"I also have a passion for photography and music," she says.

Shenaz chose a career in MTV over one at Singapore Airlines and is happy at the choice she made. "If I had joined the airlines company, I would've seen the world. Thanks to my decision, the world is now seeing me," she quips.

Is she fond of food? "Oh yes! I'm known as the `cookie monster' at home, coz' I raid the refrigerator at night," she confesses.

How did her debut film, Ishq Vishq happen? "I was at a club when I met up with director Ken Ghosh. He wanted to sign me and in five days I was shooting for the movie." But, acting in the movies is a lot tougher than veejaying, she feels. "Hosting or modelling is much better. Here, you are required to wear short skirts when it's freezing cold, climb mountains with heels, wear lots of make up and do crazy stuff. It's 45 days or more of hard work."

Ask her where she sees herself ten years down the line, and Shenaz says: "I've not really planned my career. I would like to take things as they come."
