Name: Shruti Seth

Profession: VJ, Actress and Model

Sun Sign: Sagittarius, 18 December 1977

Educational Experience

I was born and brought up in the city of dreams Mumbai. I did my schooling at Ashok Academy and I graduated from St. Xavier's College Mumbai in Economics and Commerce.

Professional Experience

I never really believed in planning, what has to happen will happen. Right after my graduation I started working at the Taj Mahal Hotel on the Executive floors as the guest relations executive. Later I stepped into TV and did a bit of modeling.

My television career kicked off with a couple of anchoring shows and a few modeling assignments. I did ads for Brooke Bond, Tata Home Finance, Frooti and Kinetic Honda. I anchored a film based show Lehrein.

Eventually, I moved onto acting and I got my first break with Star Plus in Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chaand. Soon after that I was offered a role in the action series Josh. From there I moved on to Neena Gupta's Kyun Hota Hai Pyaar, to play the character of Ramya. I also did have a good role in Maan that aired on DD metro.

Presently, I am playing Jeeya- a cute witch with a golden heart, in Shararat Thodi Jaadu Thoda Nazaakat on Star Plus. The show has earned me an immense amount of recognition and adoration.

Basically I am a social, fun loving person. I share a good rapport with Channel and I guess they were quite happy with my attitude and yen for talking. So I was offered a chance to become a VJ on Channel [V]. Being a VJ on Channel [V] is like a dream come true. Currently I am anchoring First day first show and Junglee Jukebox.

I think I was born to entertain I need a job that is challenging enough to hold my interest. Being a VJ with Channel [V], and working as a television actress has kept me on my toes. Both aspects of the media are challenging and offer much professional contentment. Just recently, I started hosting a talent show on Star Plus Kucch Kar Dikhana Hai.

Television as career choice

Rather that me choosing television, I think the television chose me. I never imagined I'd be here, but I think I was destined to entertain. Monotony, is one thing that I hate. With TV, I get to do something new everyday. I could not have ask for anything better than this. As they say there is no business like show business and I am here to stay.

Current Television scenario

Well, at this point TV is huge. We are flocked with so many channels with so many shows. For consumers, there is a variety to chose from, and as for the artists and technician, there is also lots of opportunities for to exhibit their talent.

Right and wrong about current Television scenario

I think TV has a tendency to go through phases. We see the same kind of shows not only on different channels but also on the same channel.

I think that is due to audience preferences. What needs to be done is give variety of shows, so that one gets to see everything without getting bored of the same type of shows.

Five years from now

I see myself settled with a family of my own, still a part of the television industry hopefully rich and famous.


Needless to say, I love music... particularly pop, rock and old Hindi numbers. I also like talking, watching movies, reading, shopping and traveling.

Idea of enjoyment

Doing anything that puts my nerves at ease could be hanging out with friends and family, traveling, exercising, shopping, watching a movie, reading, working and even eating.
