Shenez was bitten by the acting bug at the age of 15 when a production coordinator approached her to test for an ad. While attending St. Xavier’s College, she took an even more serious interest in acting and began modeling and doing commercials to help pay her college tuition.

Shenez won a job at MTV Asia as a VJ host and acted in everything for the channel and became the show’s favorite VJ. She also appeared in the Asian version of the show JACKASS and traveled from Hong Kong to Singapore and Bangkok among other countries.

In 2001, Shenez studied acting briefly in New York City and a famous Bollywood director chose her to appear in his film, Ishq Vishk for which she was nominated for the Indian Academy Awards for her role. Following that, she appeared in several films and comedies. Shenez relocated to New York in 2010 to audition for the role of Aubrey Wentworth on OLTL, but won the part of Rama Patel opposite Nick Choksi’s Vimal Patel.
