There was a time in the early 2000s when you would hear ‘Kaanta Laga’ almost everywhere. It was the first choice to be played at the disco and at any entertainment event. The girl who featured in the video gained exponential fame from the song.
Shefali Zariwala became a household name following the popularity of the song. She kept everybody holding their breaths with excitement whenever the song was played and rightly earned the nickname ‘Kaanta Laga girl.’ However, she had revealed that she received only INR 7000 for featuring in the song.
After Kaanta Laga, Shefali Zariwala was almost hidden from the limelight with an only guest appearance on Bollywood flick, ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi.’ Although she made to reality shows like Boogie Woogie and Nach Baliye, she has not followed up on her grand success of Kaanta Laga. She also appeared in Bigg Boss 13 but couldn’t recreate the same magic.
Shefali is now 35 years old but still looks stunning. A lot of things have changed in her life over these years. She got married twice.
Meanwhile, she is quite active on social media, posting pictures of her activities on Instagram. You can see many pics including gym selfies which indicate that she is a fitness freak.
