Sanjeeda Shaikh had started off as an extra in the Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini starred Baghban. It was easy for her to get overpowered in that exceeding list of stars, and so she did, but not to fade into oblivion.
Three years down the line, she made inroads into the television scene with Balaji Telefilms’ Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka and impressed the audience of Star One as a bubbly middle-class girl gliding through the twists and turns of her ordinary life. The following year, Balaji Telefilms cast her in a significant role in Star Plus’ Kayamath after which there has been no looking back for this gorgeous actress.
Her career saw mammoth progress during this time; in 2007 she won Nach Baliye 3, with the then-boyfriend Aamir Ali, and the two starred in 9X’s drama Kya Dil Mein Hai in 2008. After winning yet another dance reality show, Zara Nachke Dikha in 2010, Sanjeeda went on to star in an array of television series, giving her best performance as Durga in Star Plus’s Ek Hasina Thi.
Meanwhile, in 2012 she had also exchanged vows with long time beloved, Aamir. The two made a stunning couple together and were roped into the 2015 reality show, Power Couple. Though they were eliminated, their status of being one of the real power couples of television stayed unshaken. Sandeeja went on to sign more shows and made her Punjabi movie debut with Ashke in 2018 and bagged the PTC Punjabi Film Awards for it in 2019.
Things were working out just fine, until 2020, when rumors of trouble in paradise started to do the rounds. After friends of the couple started giving out bites to tabloids about Sanjeeda having moved out of the Lokhandwala flat she was staying in with her husband, Aamir came clear to media and accepted that his marriage had indeed hit a rough patch but hoped things get better. The couple was new parents to a baby girl born through surrogacy; the new member was supposed to bring the two together, but Sanjeeda took her along to her mother’s place.
While Aamir hopes for a reconciliation, we witness an abrupt change in Sanjeeda. Is she trying an image makeover? We are left wondering.
Her Instagram is steaming with hot pictures she is posting almost every day. People do get a new haircut, a revenge body, or a new look after a break-up. Nothing unusual in that. But Sanjeeda isn’t stopping at just a new look. She has revamped her personality totally and is nothing like the cute ‘Nimmo’ we were introduced to her or like the arresting ‘Durga’ we remember as.
Sanjeeda is all set to throw a tough competition to the hottest divas of B’town. While we did take notice of the gradual change she was exposing us too, she stunned us with this uber-sexy black lace lingerie featuring red velvet cups. She captions this smoldering selfie with ‘Aaj Mausam.”
A few she took to Instagram to give us a sneak-peak into this different “Kabhi neem neem, kabhi shahad shahad” side of her persona. Draped in green and orange silk, the Gehraiyaan actress glimmered in her kohl-rimmed light eyes and a big red statement bindi. The raw Indic beauty was a hypnotic sight.
Five minutes of scrolling through her Instagram reveals she has utilized the lockdown to give new body goals to the world outside.
Is this brand new, altered image just a hobby cultivated to keep busy during the extended and excruciating phase of quarantine, or is there more to it than what meets the eyes?
Sanjeeda has not been seen on television after 2017, nor are there any known projects on the horizon. But she has bagged a role in Bejoy Nambiar's Taish. She would be appearing on the big screen after seventeen years and is very excited about this return. As per reports, Sanjeeda is cast opposite Harshvardhan Rane.
Remolding herself for a new career or combating a broken relationship, Sanjeeda is certainly killing it in her new avtaar.
