I am in Mumbai to make a mark in Bollywood says upcoming star Shahnawaz Khan


This handsome dude is an model turned actor based in Mumbai.

Having done his initial acting training from NIDA (National Institute of Drama and Arts) Sydney, Australia, Shahnawaz came to Mumbai where he completed and received his acting diploma from ” Barry John” acting institute.

Sometime in 2013, he appeared in a leading role in the romantic thriller “Dekha Jo Pehli Baar’, which couldn’t create any buzz in Bollywood, and he was frank enough to admit that the film couldn’t complete even the first week of its run in Bollywood.

Very rare to find this honesty and frankness among the freshers, he added that the film’s marketing lagged way behind. Further, there was no established studio backing the project, hence the fiasco.

Presently, he is doing theatre with Mrs. Nadira Zaheer Babbar at ‘Ekjute Theatre Group’ since the last 3 years.
