Do you remember Shahid Kapoor’s debut movie Ishq Vishk? Yes, the romantic movie in which Rajiv (Shahid Kapoor) proposes Payal (Amrita Rao) to become popular in college and have a girlfriend but Payal later dumps him when she comes to know of his motives. The movie managed to garner great reviews and was loved by many and it also launched the career of Shahid Kapoor in Bollywood.
Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao, both won ‘Debut of the Year’ awards for the movie. But it wasn’t just Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao we fell in love with- Shenaz Treasury also managed to steal our hearts with her style and beauty and we couldn’t stop talking about her ravishing looks.
Well, guess what people, Shenaz has gone international! Yep, you read that right! And by international, we mean that she has bagged roles in international movies and we couldn’t be happier! To be clear, by saying ‘she has bagged’ we further mean that she has recently bagged a new role in another international project.
It will be her third project and the movie name is “My Cousin Sister’s Wedding”. She has already done some quality Hollywood projects- romcom “The Big Sick” an American television series,”One Life To Live”. According to reports, the movie follows the story of two sisters and their Pakistani cousin who try to strike a balance between their cultural values and American identity.
Talking to a publication house, Shenaz said,”I’ve just landed in freezing New York where I will be shooting for the next 22 days. I’d moved back to India and rented an apartment. However, in the very first month, I had to leave to shoot for this project. New York won’t let me leave (laughs). I’m excited to share screen space with George Wendt from the sitcom ‘Cheers’ and comedian Godfrey, who plays my love interest.”
Earlier, Shenaz was seen in a romantic comedy “The Big Sick” where she played the role of Fatima. The movie received great reviews both from movie critics and viewers. “The Big Sick” is about a Pakistani stand-up comedian Kumail who meets an American graduate student, Emily at one of his stand-up show. Soon love blossoms between the two and Kumail start to worry about what his traditional Muslim parents will think about Emily.
Emily is hospitalised after she faints and doctors reveal that she has a serious lung infection and must be placed in an induced coma with tracheal intubation. Kumail calls her parents and what follows is a great bonding between Emily’s parents and Kumail. Meanwhile, Kumail’s parents are furious at why Kumail is not taking their marriage suggestions seriously? Kumail reveals that he is in love with Emily and then his parents disown him. The movie went on to be the highest-grossing independent movie of 2017.
Apart from these two movies, Shenaz was also seen on American television show “One Life To Live”. The show is one of the longest-running American TV shows being aired from 1968 to 2012 with 45 seasons and 11,136 episodes. Shenaz played the role of Rama Patel in 2011-2012 and 2013.
The TV series heavily focused on the members and relationships of the Lord Family. Shenaz, on the other hand, has also appeared in Bollywood movie “Delhi Belly”. The movie was a black comedy written by Akshat Verma and directed by Abhinay Deo. Delhi Belly received a huge positive response from both the critics and moviegoers.
We pray that Shenaz continues her great stint of works and keep giving us more reasons to admire her!
