Shenaz Treasurywala had quite an adventurous youth. As the daughter of a Merchant Marine, the actress spent the first seven years of her life aboard a massive cargo ship and would frequently wake up in a different country. Treasurywala was 15 when, she shares, "Showbiz came calling! I was approached by a production coordinator and she asked me to test for an ad. I had been approached a few times before and just thought it was a joke!" While attending St. Xavier's College, she began to take things more seriously. She started modeling and took commercial gigs to help pay for school.
She eventually landed a job at MTV Asia, where she became one of the network's most popular VJs and hosts. "I hosted and acted in everything for the channel," she nods. She appeared in the Asian version of JACKASS and was given the opportunity to travel from Hong Kong to Singapore to Bangkok, among other places.
After a brief stint studying acting in New York City in 2001, Treasurywala was tapped by a famous Bollywood director to appear in 2003's Ishq Vishk and was nominated for an Indian Academy Award for the part. She has since starred in multiple Bollywood films and comedies.
She relocated to New York and joined the cast of OLTL after originally auditioning for the role of Aubrey.
