Shamita Shetty, the Sharara girl, has become increasingly popular since her time on Bigg Boss 15. The actress, whose career began in 2000 with Mohabbatein, is still well-known for her brief appearance in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai. So when we got a chance to host another Shetty sister on our Tere Gully Mein episode of Curly Tales, we couldn’t be more excited! Kamiya Jani, our Editor-in-Chief, explored the streets of Chembur with Shamita Shetty, and they had a blast talking about everything from her childhood, career and food preferences. Read more about what happened when the actress almost fell off a train!
Shamita Went To College By Local Train
St. Anthony’s Girls’ High School in Mumbai was where Shamita Shetty completed her high school. Later, the actress completed her graduate studies in Commerce at Sydenham College of Commerce & Economics, Mumbai, Maharashtra. Shamita also acquired a diploma in Fashion Design from SNDT College in Mumbai. The Bollywood celebrity also completed her schooling in Fashion Design and interned with Manish Malhotra, a renowned fashion designer in Bollywood. Manish Malhotra encouraged her to try acting during her internship and asked her to prepare for it.
When Kamiya asked how she used to travel so far from Chembur to Sydenham College, Shamita answered, “I used to go by local trains. Here is the train station next to Sadhguru. Main train se jati thi, all the way to town, that was also more convenient.” But by the time she went to SNDT, her father had gifted her a blue Zen, which she used to drive and go. But otherwise, she always used to commute via train!
Shamita Shetty ALMOST Falls Off Mumbai Local
The Mohabbatein actress shared that her primary commute during college was the Mumbai local. She also remembers how she almost fell off a train. When Kamiya asked her if she became an expert over time in travelling in trains, she said, “You can never become an expert. Oh, baba, it’s a different kind of pushing and pulling. And I can’t push and pull, ye mere se nahi hota.” Shamita tells us how she has been pushed several times, and as she said, she almost got pushed off a train. It was one of her friends that caught her from falling. But yes, she got saved!
So, all the Mumbaikars out there, what is your experience of local trains? Let us know in the comments, and while you’re at it. Watch the video linked above and learn more about the life of Shamita Shetty!
