Biography: Isha Sharvani is arguably one of the finest dancers that Bollywood has ever seen. Though she hasn’t taken up many roles, her talent was for all to see. After debuting in Subhash Ghai’s Kisna, Isha has gone on to carve a unique niche for herself.
She was born to an Indian Mother and an Australian Father in Gujarat. Her family shifted a lot until finally settling in Trivandrum. Subhash Ghai spotted her and signed her for his movie Kisna, where the role demanded an actress skilled in contemporary dancing. Isha was tailor made for the role and did admirably well. However, the film bombed at the box office.
She was noticed nonetheless and later appeared in movies such as Darwaza Bandh Rakho, Rocky: The Rebel and Good Boy, Bad Boy. All these films had her playing the lead role. In movies such as Luck By Chance and U, Me aur Hum; she played secondary roles. Her upcoming films are Maattraan and David, both of which are Tamil films.
Stunted nature of her Bollywood career can be attributed to various factors. She never took acting seriously as dance always remained her first love. Add to that, Isha would shuttle back to Kerala to continue her dancing practice. In an era where marketing and self promotion is such a critical factor for any actress; Isha hardly did herself a favour by staying secluded! Something which she admits doing consciously.
Isha has also appeared in commercials, with the most striking being the Parle Hide and Seek biscuit ad with Hrithik Roshan. Isha’s dancing skills were matched up with an equally competent Hrithik in this one and the ad became a huge success.
On the personal front, Isha has declared herself single. Cricketer Zaheer Khan was in a relationship for a long time with her, but they recently broke up. Though exact reason wasn’t provided, both cited different ambitions as the reason. Isha has stated that now she is fully focussed on her dancing career and this has been evident. She has swept judges and audience alike with her performances on the reality dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5.
