On Dec. 7, 2013, teen actor and model Shivani Patel, 16, shared with Examiner.com the latest concerning what she has been up to lately in the entertainment industry. Her brand new news is being cast in a film!
Turns out another thing these cousins have in common is something they won.
"We both won a one year contract with a talent agency. So you could say we have some acting experiences we've had through our agency. In addition, some personal experiences I've had in acting include a variety of plays at school plus acting competitions."
"I also have done stand-up comedy, speak several accents which make me more vesatile in acting roles, and now I have landed a role in the film 'Casting.' My cousin has a part too, and our character names are Rani Singh (Pooja's) and mine is Nina Singh. We're listed at IMDb."
The film is a short produced by a film and television organization that Patel is a member of. The group is called the United Film & Television Artists (UFTA). Patel is becoming an active UFTA member, especially now with her film role. The film begins early 2014.
