Shenaz Treasurywala (sometimes spelled as Shenaz Treasuryvala) or simply known as Shenaz is an Indian model, travel writer, and VJ-turned-actress.

Shenaz is born on 29th June, 1981 in Mumbai.

She was born and brought up in a middle class Gujarati-speaking Parsi family. Her father is a Merchant Marine. A keen photographer, the gorgeous damsel is a versatile personality who plays piano as well as guitar.

At age 14 Shenaz was enrolled in school at Mumbai, where she also later attended St. Xavier's College. In 2001, Shenaz moved to New York City where she studied method acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. While in New York, she also took a writing course at NYU. Her favourite hobbies include jet skiing, travel, and photography.

Discovered by a photographer during her first year in college, her first modelling assignment was for the soft drink Gold Spot. She also did advertising work for Akai and Philips before MTV Networks Asia hired her to work as a VJ on the MTV's Most Wanted program.

Her acting debut was in the 2003 Bollywood film Ishq Vishk, which earned Shenaz a nomination for the best supporting actress award by the Filmfare Film Awards. 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 'Ishq Vishk'. She has since then acted in a total of several other movies.

With her life-long love of travel, she has written travel articles for Cosmopolitan, ELLE, and Femina.

One of her ambitions is to host a travel show. Shenaz is also host on Travel Channel's 'Culture Shock', and has written travel articles in magazines which include Cosmopolitan, Femina, and Elle.

Shennaz wants to see her name amongst India's top photographers, and has varied passions like swimming, travelling, bungee jumping, reading, playing Guitar, etc.
