Check out her spectacular journey to becoming a Stage Diva, in her interview with Ms. Namita Nayyar, President, Women Fitness Org.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
At the beginning of your career, you relocated to New York, where you hosted 3 nationally syndicated TV shows – ‘Namaste America’, ‘V Desi’ & ‘AVS’ (Asian Variety Show). Soon after you shifted your base to India, and since then have been doing exceptionally great work. Share with us your incredible journey of making a mark in the entertainment industry?
Ms. Shibani Dandekar:
Wow how long do I have?!! I basically spent my 20’s really struggling to see if I had a career in entertainment .. it is strange, but without sounding negative, I never really thought there was a chance for it.. both my hosting opportunities in America and India happened purely by chance because on both occasions people encouraged me to audition and I resisted a little but then just went for it and here I am today! After the first show in India, the hustler in me kicked in and things went into overdrive and I’ve spent years just trying to do as much as I can and honestly I’ve never been more fulfilled or happy… creating and building a career and watching something grow excites me… it isn’t about the money or fame it is the reward of sheer hard work!
