Her interaction with the Films & Television world started after she moved to Mumbai in 1987. She started by assisting Shashi Ranjan in the Production of TV Software & this also brought her face to face with various aspects & problems that subsisted in the TV industry.
She founded The Indian Television Academy (ITA in July 2001, a ground-breaking & significant movement at the time which brought together and galvanised the entire TV workforce in the country, under one umbrella.
The ITA subsequently launched the first ever totally TV-centric Indian Television Academy Awards in 2001 to recognise & reward the excellence that was present on the canvas of Indian Television.
The ITA launched, with great fanfare and style, GR8 TV MAGAZINE – The Only Television Glossy in the World on August 2003. This publication supported towards cementing the entire TV Industry into one cohesive whole. It held up & upheld the first ever mirror for Television, reflecting all its glory and glitz.

As an inevitable conclusion of his proclivity towards the performing Arts, Shashi joined the illustrious Film & TV Institute of India, Pune, where he received exposure to the best in World Cinema. He chose to pursue Cinema as his area of specialisation, with a particular emphasis on Acting.
Shashi consequently pursued an assiduous career in acting in the Bombay Film Industry.
