At an age when girls aspire to be the next model/superstar in the making, young 18-year old Emily Shah is a revelation. She is in serious discussion with the UNICEF to be the Brand Ambassador for their ‘End Polio Now’ campaign.
Representing India, Emily who was the first runner up at the Miss Teen World 2012 has set her eyes on modeling and acting in films but the youngster surely has her priorities lined up including working towards eradication of polio worldwide in association with UNICEF. Currently, she is actively involved with various other charities and social causes in the USA while pursuing her film education.
A multifaceted girl who shuttles between USA and India, Emily has been attending the renowned Lee Strasberg – the film and acting school in the US with her desire to excel in the entertainment industry as well. She is also well versed in dancing having learned the art from Ms. Carol’s School of Dance, USA for 9 years.
A winner of countless beauty pageants during her stay in USA, Emily has done bit roles in films like Ta Ra Rum Pum, Jaaneman among others and is just waiting for Bollywood to open the doors to her big time.
Despite the fact that Emily has already been approached by directors from the South for lead roles, she has yet to give her nod to their projects as Bollywood is where she aspires to be in the long run. Over the years, she has already acquired a decent fan base in India as well as USA thanks to her countless achievements in various beauty pageants on international platforms.
For Emily, talent runs deep in her genes. Daughter of Prashant Shah who has been associated with Shahrukh Khan’s Ra.One as an Executive Producer, she has completed a number of film related courses and is well versed in horse riding, swimming, dancing (both Western & Bollywood routine), Bike riding, Skating, Percussion including mastery in Photography. She is also fluent in English, Hindi and Gujarati and all these qualities make her a strong contender to rule over Bollywood – a girl who can give others actresses a stiff competition down the line.
It’s just a matter of time when this highly talented girl with a heart of gold gets her big break in Bollywood. Though she’s getting offers to act in Bollywood films, she’s taking her own sweet time to get the right offer. And till then, Emily is happy being a part of the multiple charities and social causes she supports – a beauty with brain and a heart to match no doubt.
