In 2001, Shenaz moved to New York, USA, to enroll in the Lee Strasberg Theater& Film Institute, as well as taking a writing course at New York University. She made quite a dramatic entry into Bollywood after she lost her luggage, passport and visa papers while traveling by Kuwait Airways, and as result was unable to return to New York. This incident proved to be an advantage as she was approached by Ken Ghosh, who signed her up for a role in IshqVishk (2003). She was nominated for the Filmfare Awards for "IshqVishk", which went on to be a huge Asia-wide box office phenomenon. She has since then acted in a total of several other movies.
