The gorgeous model and mother is a role-model.
The Cocktail ‘Jugni’ made her a superstar over night. And it’s intriguing people to discover the Coke Studio version, which has made it even more popular.
From working with Mira Nair and Bollywood’s Farhan Akhtar to singing Faiz Ahmad Faiz on Coke Studio,
Meesha Shafi is not looking back as she carves her own path in the entertainment industry.
Shafi, who started out as an artist and a model quickly expanded her portfolio to encompass the many dynamic facets of her personality and has since collected one accolade after another, for singing, acting and being an overall rockstar.
Recently we saw her work takes a royal tone as she embodies Wazir Begum, the female titular character in the epic fantasy saga Mor Mahal and then as a judge at the much talked about Pepsi Battle of the Bands!
Daughter of veteran TV actor Saba Hameed, Shafi has already marked her presence in the world of fashion and music, and a Hollywood project like The Reluctant Fundamentalist has givenher strong boost to her acting career. ‘Bhaag Mika Bhaag’ proved to be a bigger hit . Farhan Akhtar and MeeshaShafiwere a treat to watch. As we know that he is super intelligent, has a great sense of humor and is extremely talented.
Meesha is interested in doing unique, high quality, intelligent work, no matter where it comes from. There are several offers in the pipeline from Bollywood for this superstar. Her philosophy is simple, and she’s very picky about the movies she watches so she simply will not do the kind of movie that she wouldn’t even watch. No matter what she gets paidor with whomever she is paired with.
She has done playback singing for two movies but they are not Indian, although there are some Indian music directors she would love to work with, like A.R. Rahman, Ismail Darbar, Vishal Bhardwaj and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The OST for MOOR revived her singing solidarity amongst the female singers currently in the country .
All the confidence she has in front of the camera today, whether it’s for a movie, television or a fashion photographer, comes from my modeling experience.
‘The camera is a very daunting thing. It doesn’t miss anything and once published – that moment stays forever. You can be extremely beautiful and still be awkward when a lens is pointing right at you.
