Shiny Doshi shares about her life before becoming an actor says, ‘I had basic needs to meet from food to shelter’

In 2013, Shiny Doshi made her acting debut as Kusum Desai in Saraswatichandra. Doshi is well recognized for her performances as Radha in Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran, Mahi Sengupta in Jamai Raja, and Sarojini Singh in Sarojini - Ek Nayi Pehal. She took part in Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 in 2017. Currently, Doshi has been performing the role of Dhara Pandya in the show Pandya Store. Actress Shiny Doshi, who is well-known today, remembers going through a difficult time.


The actress shared about her struggling days and how she was the bread earner for her family. She said, “I had a lot of responsibilities back home when I came to Mumbai with just ₹15,000. I didn’t have money or a place to stay. Life was very tough. I had to look after my mother and my brother. I was 20. Life put me in a situation where I had to earn a living. Our father had left us and things were not great family-wise. My mum was a housewife and my brother had just completed his graduation. I had to meet the basic needs from food to shelter.”

Further talking about her return to TV shows, Shiny said, “I was making good money during the TV show Saraswatichandra in 2013. I was looking after two houses. But when the show got shut, the savings vanished before I could find another show. I used to feel ye kya zindagi hai. However, the last four years have been better.”

Calling her mother her biggest strength during her tough days, the actress revealed, “Coming from a Gujarati family, being an actor was not looked up to well. Pehle to criticism hi jhela hai. You are dealing with so many things. (But) My mother was the biggest support in my life. When I used to wake up every day and look at her, she used to give me strength. I remember if I didn’t have a good day on set, I would tell her, ‘Mumma beizzati ho Gayi set pe Aaj and she used to say ‘koi baat Nahi. Her words kept me going.”

Shiny concluded by sharing something that she has learned in her journey. She said, “Life is extremely uncertain and you never know. My investments kept me safe. So, investments are very important.”
