Daisy Shah, the Jai Ho actress (age 30) began her career assisting Bollywood choreographer  Ganesh Acharya.  She considers Salman Khan, her mentor and guide.

Daisy was born in Sion in Mumbai.  Her father was a floor manager in a cloth mill in Dombivili and her mom is a housewife.  After she completed her 10th, she participated in a Miss Dombivili competition that was held in a mall.  She ended up winning the title ‘Miss Photogenic’.  The ramp choreographer who had contacts with the movie industry said that she would be paid Rs. 600 for two days work, wherein she had to be a part of the crowd in a song that featured Sunny Deol.  In her words, “ On that day, it was raining heavily and four of the dancers did not turn up. The choreographer  asked my coordinator to give four girls to him, who were hired as extras for that song, which included me as well.  I shot as a dancer for one day, Ganesh sir spotted me and asked me to join his group.”

Daisy was group dancer as a part of Ganesh’s troupe for two and a half years, after which she became his assistant.  As an assistant, her job was to learn the steps from Ganesh and then teach them to others, to practice.  But Daisy was not really interesting in a career as a choreographer.  She did not want to go though the pressure of appeasing the director, the actor and the producer.  So she took on modeling, after which she was selected to do a Kannada film.   After wrapping up the film,  Daisy came  back to Mumbai where Ganesh was choreographing a song for Dabanng.

Salman who had spotted her before, as well , asked her what she was doing.  Daisy told him about her Kannada film and showed her some of her pictures.  Salman offered the role of Kareena’s friend in Bodyguard.  Daisy was not comfortable doing the role but was also apprehensive about voicing it to Salman. The role eventually went to Hazel Keech.  Daisy did say no to Salman and then went on to do films in the South.  Later, Salman called her again to audition for Jai Ho. Daisy says that she came to know that she had actually bagged the role when she was having dinner with Salman Khan’s family.

Daisy Shah says that she has a prominent scar on the head which happened when she had met with a car accident when she was on her way in the vehicle from Ooty to catch a flight.  She got herself treated in the town and then again in Mumbai, where a doctor by the name of Narendra Pandya told her that she will start liking her scar one day.

Daisy holds the highest regard for Salman Khan whom she says has the memory of an elephant and is soft-hearted by nature. She also says that he is the best person to work with, always giving tips and helpful suggestions.  Daisy says that she considers Salman like her dad, because he is understanding, impulsive, and can get angry very fast only to cool down in just ten minutes.
