Early Journey :
On the threshold to choose a career path post her board exams, Isha had a eureka moment of what she really wanted to do. Isha wanted to give acting a shot. She shares, “Life took over and I forgot about it until dance happened. I was chosen for a fully funded 3 year Dance Scholarship at Terence Lewis Contemporary Dance Company after Terence Sir spotted me in a regular class at his studio and insisted I audition. I had no idea my body had the rhythm and I could dance. Acting followed organically.” This was where Isha got selected for her first television commercial for Yahoo. Gradually she went on to polish her diction and acting skills. Her preparation was peppered with many such ad campaigns. Isha shares, “Every single job came through rigorous auditions. I remember, sometimes over 1000 people showed up for television commercials. To be selected and given the opportunity, gave me a sense that I was doing something right and gave me immense clarity. An exposure and opportunity to face the camera often was a new on the Job learning experience.”
She has shared screen space with Bollywood actors such as Shahrukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Boman Irani and John Abraham. She has roughly been seen in around 60 to 70 ads to date. She also went on to shoot a promotional video Doob Ja… with Hrithik Roshan for Just Dance.
