Actor Shazahn Padamsee who has been part of films such as Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year (2009) and Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (2011) will feature in her first musical directed by her father and renowned theatre artist Alyque Padamsee. For this, the actor has also taken lessons from singer and vocal coach, Samantha Edwards who has earlier trained the likes of actors Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan, Varun Dhawan, Nargis Fakhri, Alia Bhatt.
Talking about the experience, she says, “I’ve had a great time learning music from her.” In fact Shazahn says she is happy to have got a chance to take this up. “Life is limitless and so are the opportunities, perspectives and experiences. Having rockstar parents (her mother is singer Sharon Prabhakar) has taught me to master as many trades as possible and gather as much knowledge needed to evolve creatively as an individual.”
Ask her about the experience of working with her dad and she shares, “When we decided to work on a project together, we looked at a lot of scripts and nothing excited us as much as this extremely unique story based on love, life, death. I’ve had a blast! I’ve worked hard on putting every aspect of this production together, it’s literally been a crash course in acting, producing and creating,” adds Shazahn. “I wanted to exploring something far away from the mainstream and I believe this production will help me,” she says.
