Apart from being a fine actor and interior designer, Shamita is an avid fitness lover and loves to lead a healthy simple life. Women Fitness brings to you some of the her life secrets, exclusively this month.
Starting out as an interior designer, your journey began with an internship with ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra. But you soon made your film debut in 2000 with the blockbuster Mohabbatein, and won the 2001 IIFA Award for Star Debut of the Year. Share your incredible journey to become an actress? What drew you towards this line of profession?
I got my diploma in Fashion Designing, post which I did an internship with Manish Malhotra. I thought I would pursue a career in that field but acting just naturally happened, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Having started with the best I didn’t want to settle with mediocre work so I didn’t end up doing too many films. Unfortunately for me the wait between films just got too long n eventually I decided to give myself another career option too. I studied Interior design in London worked with an Architect here for a year and started my own business. Ofcourse Jhalak Dikhla Jaa brought me back into the entertainment field post which I did a web series and I’m currently working on a film, it’s been an interesting journey. Many ups and downs ofcourse, but given a chance I would not want to change anything because I believe every experience has made me a stronger and better person.
