Shefali Shah Birth and Family 

Shefali Shah (née Shetty) was born on May 22, 1973 in Mumbai. She is the only child of Mangalorean Sudhakar Shetty, a banker at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), and his Gujarati wife Shobha, a homoeopathy doctor. Shah is fluent in Tulu, Hindi, English, Marathi, and Gujarati.

Shefali Shah Education

Shah grew up in the RBI quarters in Santa Cruz, Mumbai, where she attended Arya Vidya Mandir School. While she was drawn to the arts as a child, including singing and dancing (she is trained in Bharatanatyam), she was not drawn to acting. Her first acting experience occurred when she was 10 years old, when her schoolteacher's playwright husband asked Shah's mother if she would allow her daughter to play a character based on Damien Thorn from The Omen (1976). Shah took the part with her mother's permission and would not act again for several years. After finishing school, she enrolled at Mithibai College in Vile Parle, where she studied science but spent the majority of her time working.


Shefali Shah Husband 

Shah was married to television actor Harsh Chhaya from 1994 to 2000. In December 2000, she married director Vipul Amrutlal Shah, with whom she has two sons, Aryaman and Maurya.

Shefali Shah Personal Life

Aside from acting, Shah enjoys painting and cooking. She finds painting therapeutic and says it gives her the creative outlet she craves when she is not acting in films. She trained for six months at Last Ship, an artists' residency in Bandra, and in 2016 she attended Metàfora, a Spanish art school in Barcelona. Shah focuses on perspective art, namely "the marriage of perspective with architectural designs" of places she has visited, and works primarily with acrylic on canvas as well as charcoal and ink. Her influences include Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. One of her paintings was on display at the Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai during an Art for Concern exhibition, where it was eventually sold. One of her paintings was on display at the Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai during an Art for Concern exhibition, where it was eventually sold, while a solo show at The Monalisa Kalagram in Pune in 2017 was, by her own admission, a failure.


Shefali Shah Restaurant 

In 2021, Shah opened Jalsa, a restaurant in Ahmedabad, Gujarat that serves both Indian and international cuisines and offers customers a variety of cultural and recreational activities ranging from pottery and henna decoration to musical performances such as Garba. She oversees its cuisine, some of which is based on her family recipes, as well as its decor, having designed some of its interiors, including hand-painted walls. Lifestyle Asia gave the restaurant's second location in Bangalore a positive review.
