Shefali Jariwala

Shefali Jariwala’s name became synonymous with the hit song “Kaanta Laga” in 2002. The catchy tune and Shefali’s mesmerizing performance in the music video made her an overnight celebrity, earning her the nickname “Kaanta Laga Girl.” By the young age of 19, she had achieved national fame.

Bollywood Debut and Health Struggles

In 2011, she ventured into Kannada cinema with the film “Hudagaru,” marking her only film release outside of Bollywood since her debut. Shefali embraced the digital platform with her OTT debut in 2018, playing the lead role in the web series “Baby Come Naa” on Alt Balaji.
