Sheetal is an actress, writer, and producer who burst onto the scene with raves in the groundbreaking film, 'ABCD', playing the gutsy lead, a risky and memorable role as a promiscuous young girl struggling with the ties of family and tradition.

Raised in a small New Jersey city, she discovered her passion for acting in high school and subsequently enrolled in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.
