When Helly Shah opens up about different things in her life and work to Times Of India, she once again spoke about her travel plans to her hometown Ahmedabad, saying:

While in eighth grade, she entered the world of acting by starring in a TV series titled Zindagi Ka Har Rang … Gulal titled Star Plus. Zee TV’s Khelati Hai Zindegi starred as Amy in the TV series titled Aankh Misholi.
When she first came to the acting scene, Helly Shah could have been mistaken for another bubbly school girl. That’s because she was a child actress who made her dream debut in a daily soap — Alaxmi — Hamari Super Bahu as the female lead.
During one of her interviews she said that she began acting right when she was in the eight standard and loved being a part of the television industry. She even suggested that she would concentrate on studying Biotechnology after she completed school in 2012 but didn’t want to make any concrete plan either because she needed to shoot for long hours in her day-to-day acting life.
From March 2015 to December 2017, she played the lead role in the Swaragini TV series on Colors TV.
The actress then played the role of Debangshi in the TV serial Debangshi.

Her last show Ishq Mein Marjawan 2 (IMMJ2) was critically acclaimed for its theme, and yet Helly Shah’s last show couldn’t add up enough numbers on the TRP chart and was later aired on the OTT platform.
“I don’t think anything went wrong with Ishq Mein Marjawan 2. We all did a fabulous job and we all loved it. It was different and I think we were the only ones to have a thriller show on air. I feel TV audiences in India take too much time to adapt to a different type of storyline. They are used to seeing certain kinds of shows. I now feel that we really need to go slow with newer themes on TV,” she said.
8. Helly Shah’s currently waiting for the right role:
For anyone asking what is Helly Shah up to in 2021, well the actress said that shows are being offered, but she is taking my time. She doesn’t have anything planned despite working every year and being a workaholic. Now with her last show going off the air, the actress who is a very choosy person said that if a project comes up and she doesn’t like it, she won’t say yes to it.
The Swaragini – Jodein Rishton Ke Sur actress was quick to compare her resume saying that her TV serials have been different from each other and none of them were regular saas-bahu sagas.
The actress did say that she does take some time in between for herself to travel and randomly sit at home and do nothing. After all, the workaholic actress has engaged in everything from a thriller to playing a double role, and is currently fine with waiting for the right role.
9. She was nervous for Bigg Boss, but did it anyway:
After having just done one reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, the actress is also keen to do reality shows but of different kinds.
“Bigg Boss, however, was offered to me, along with Khatron Ke Khiladi (KKK). KKK was offered to me while I was doing Ishq Mein… and I did not want to leave that for a reality show. Talking about Bigg Boss, I am not a Bigg Boss person. So many people staying under one roof scares me. As of now mentally I am not prepared for such a reality show. KKK, if I am offered that show, I will be doing it,” she said during a Times Of India interview.
