Shazahn Padamsee is an Indian film and stage actress, who has also worked as a model. She made her first film appearance in the 2009 Hindi film 'Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year'. After the failure of her debut film, she went on to appear in two South Indian films, gaining credit from critics for her performance.
After appearances in several stage performances including her father's play Unspoken Dialogues, Shazahn appeared in several national advertisements, whilst auditioning for roles in Hindi films. After a film with Vivek Vaswani failed to materialize, she successfully auditioned for the part in Yash Raj Studio's Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Although she played the leading female role, her screen-time was minimal leading to critics claiming that her role had little scope. The film opened to positive reviews, but the lack of publicity became a reason for it becoming a failure commercially at the box office.
Her second and third films were released on the same day, both being South Indian films in Tamil and Telugu respectively. In Kanimozhi, Shazahn played the role of Anu, a girl in the neighbourhood who the lead actor, played by Jai is nervous to express his feelings to. Upon release, the film gained mixed reviews with Shazahn's portrayal of her character being criticised. However her Telugu film Orange garnered more positive reviews and Shazahn's portrayal of her role was better received by critics.
Shazahn was also seen in the multi-starrer romantic comedy 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji' directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. Her latest release being Sajid Khan's 'Housefull 2'.
