Shefali is all set to make her television with a brand new show, Shaitani Rasmein.
Shefali Jariwala took the nation by storm in the early 2000s with her debut in the music video of Kaanta Laga. She was aspiring to become a computer engineer but became a dance sensation in the country at the age of 20. Shefali later turned into a successful entrepreneur and her journey has been full of challenges, including her battle with epilepsy. Now Shefali is all set to make her television with a brand new show, Shaitani Rasmein on Star Bharat.
Shefali issued a statement in which she got candid about her decision to enter the TV space. She said, “”I believe I was too temperamental to consider television roles before. I couldn’t connect with the monotony of television show storylines and concepts. However, when I was presented with the opportunity to be a part of Shaitani Rasmein, I knew I had to say yes. It felt like the right opportunity for me to explore television because it offers a very different concept. The intriguing storyline made me hungry as an artist, and it’s exactly what I’ve been waiting for.”
Earlier this year, Shefali also shed light on her battle with epilepsy, “I had my first seizure when I was 15, and for a decade, living with epilepsy was a challenge. Mood and anxiety disorders affected schoolwork and social functioning. At that age, expressing feelings of hopelessness and helplessness was impossible,” she told ETimes.
She added, “I had such low self-esteem. But as I grew older, there were newer challenges. The stress of having a seizure at an inappropriate time and place always loomed over my head, especially after ‘Kaanta Laga’ when I was shooting and performing on stage, travelling so much.”
The actress concluded by saying that medicines, a strong support system and positive changes in her lifestyle helped her throughout. Therefore, for the last 15 years, she has been seizure-free. Besides this, Shefali also mentioned that overcoming epilepsy has only made her mentally stronger and physically fitter.
Speaking of Shefali Jariwala’s work, she rose to fame with the song Kaanta Laga. She also starred in the movie Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. Shefali also participated in reality shows like Nach Baliye and Bigg Boss 13. She has also worked with Shreyas Talpade for ALT Balaji’s web series titled Baby Come Naa. Recently, the actress was seen in the short film Ouch 2 by Vaibhav Mutha. She co-starred with Sharman Joshi and Nidhi Bisht.
