Monisha Shiva (Fatima, the daughter)

Monisha Shiva was born and raised in NYC, where she loved performance as a child. She enjoyed people’s stories and to play pretend in school. She further nurtured acting and her interest in Kathak, an Indian classical style of dance, in Edison, NJ.   In her comeback to NYC, she studied at William Esper Studios and Studio 5.   You can find her in movies such as The Guru, Cosmopolitan, and Karma, Confessions & Holi and films from independent artists. She has performed in theater productions of Rats and I, Kreon.  Monisha’s other interests include boxing and traveling.  She believes that is important for women to experience their own mobility in this world!
