4 Facts You Should Know About Shefali Shah
A National Award Winner
Not many people know that Shefali Shah is a National award winner, though as a ‘best supporting actress’. She received the honour for her brilliant performance in Rituparno Ghosh’s The Last Lear (2007).
She is married to Vipul Amrutlal Shah
How many times have you spotted the “Dil Dhadakne Do” actress with her husband Vipul Amrutlal Shah at award ceremonies or celebrity gatherings?
The couple maintains quite a low-profile and thus not many people are aware about the relationship between the two. Together, they have two sons, named Aryaman and Maurya.
However, filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah isn’t her first husband. The ‘Waqt’ star was married to actor Harsh Chhaya from 1997-2001.
Shefali Shah is an avid Painter
Well, Shefali’s talent isn’t just limited to acting. In 2016, she underwent a 3-month training in Painting at Metafora Art School in Spain and went to the same place the following year to complete her 2nd semester.
She regularly showcases her art work at various exhibitions and galleries. Her paintings are even available for purchase at popular online shopping sites!
She cites American painters Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock as her inspiration.
Shefali was almost half the age of Amitabh Bachchan when she played the role of his wife in ‘Waqt: The Race Against Time’
Shefali Shah and ‘Amit Ji’ played the role of Akshay Kumar’s parents in the 2005 commercially successful film Waqt, wherein Shah was made to look a lot older than her real age.
Since there is no official source to verify her age, we are going by what Shefali Shah herself mentioned in an interview.
According to her, she was only 32 years old when the movie released in 2005, while Amitabh Bachchan was 62 and quite ‘shockingly’ her on-screen ‘son’ Akshay Kumar was 37.
