Fun loving lady. I do not have any dream role in mind, I want to try out everything that would fetch me a National Award. All they ask for is an autograph or a handshake!

I am the boss in my life. I decide when to charge more and when not to. I live in my own zone. I do not hurt anyone and I am very transparent. I do not keep people hanging in life.

Early life

I was born in Kenya on 21st November 1987, to Shikanda family. Am the second last born to a family of many. I intended to become a doctor, my aversion for dissections made me opt for Certified Public Accountant [3]. However, in 2009, I met a well-known Hotelier; Mr. Hassan Faisal who happens to be the director Coastal Films invited me to his Industry. Much appreciation.


I was a household name much before I entered films. I made my film debut in Mystery of the Golden Rings. I have also starred in The Text Message where I played the role of a maid who goes out to woo her boss’ husband. This has made me bold enough to accept unusual roles in films. Apart from acting my other hobbies include dancing, reading and helping my mother with interior designing. Am fondly called Ada by near and dear ones. Fate intervened when I recoiled and passed out when dissecting a rat! Thus ended my dream of being a medical professional but switched to Commerce thereafter. I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Graduate and intend to venture into Commerce.
