Shroff broke the media scenes at a very young age. She started working as a commercial print model when she was sixteen years old. She enjoyed seven successful years as a model and later decided to enter the acting scenes. Professionally, she began her career in Mumbai, where she was trained by the renowned Pearl Padamsee.
Until today, Shroff credits Padamsee who encouraged her to attend the Circle in the Square Theatre School in New York. She kept on honing her skills at the off-Broadway theater Castillo shortly after, where she performed in a variety of parts for German avant-gardist Heiner Muller to Nora in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
Her one-woman performance of her show, “How to Succeed as an Ethnically Ambiguous Actor,” received praise from the critics and was up for nomination in the category of Best Actress at the Planet Connection Theatre Festival. Her run at the Castillo Theatre off-Broadway was likewise a great success.
Like they say, “Hard work Pays”. Her breakthrough performance came in 2017 when she portrayed Kumail Nanjiani’s mother in The Big Sick, a huge box office hit that also earned her great accolades and a SAG nomination for Best Ensemble Cast.
