Ms. Namita Nayyar:
From receiving a Filmfare nomination for your debut to writing travel articles for Cosmopolitan and Femina, you had a journey of your own; Tell us which phase of your journey have you enjoyed the most?
Ms. Shenaz Treasuryvala:
Yes, I’ve had many careers, I think I’ve had five careers. One was I started with modelling then I started doing ads. I just got picked up from college to do that. Then MTV calls me. Even from the ads, they found me. They called me to audition. Then I was on MTV. Then I went to New York, lost my bags. MTV was mad at me, threw me out, and I happened to be in a nightclub when I got Ishq Vishq. So everything that happened kind of happened by chance and fate. I did that.
Then I went to USA, I acted there. I did quite a lot there, actually. I did a soap opera there. I did a show called Nightly Show. I did Shoots, & Netflix. So did quite a few things. And then I decided, I’m done with America. I want to come back to India. Meanwhile, I’d started this Instagram page. I had started travelling and making these little videos just as a hobby. And suddenly brands started calling me and telling me to do brand placements. And I didn’t know what it was, but I was like, oh, I did give so many years to acting. Let me try this. And in between I wrote a screenplay “Luv ka the end” for Y Films, so I’ve lost track how many careers I’ve had. And then I am writing a book right now. So I actually like to do everything under the umbrella of creative and enjoy everything I do. Every phase is fun.
I love this phase because I can do everything in this phase, which is writing, acting, editing, shooting. I do it all the time. I’m writer, director, and producer. Everything on my video’s on Instagram and YouTube and Facebook. This is really fun. I am enjoying this phase the most. At least that’s what I feel right now. I think I’m also more relaxed as a person too, you know, as you get older, you get more relaxed.
