If my strength intimidates you I hope you realize that’s a weakness of yours. Shama Sikander

Shama Sikander was born in 4 August 1979, is an Indian actress who is best recognised for her lead roles in TV series like Yeh Meri Life Hai (2003-2005) and groundbreaking web content like the short film Sexaholic and the mini-series Maaya: Slave of Her Desires. On the big screen, Sikander has appeared in numerous Bollywood films, including starting her career with the 1999 Aamir Khan starrer Mann. Her last theatrical release, a Bollywood thriller, Bypass Road was released on 8 November 2019.

Shama Sikander was born in Makrana, Rajasthan, India, and is the daughter of Gulshan, a housewife and Sikander Gesawat who was a marble supplier and now practices ayurveda. At the age of 9 her family moved to Mumbai, Maharashtra, where she lived together with her younger siblings, Khalid, Rizwan Sikander, and Salma (born 1991). Sikander has mentioned in interviews that her early years in Mumbai were extremely difficult, even commenting that at times “there was no food in the house to feed the family”.

Having moved locations frequently, Sikander attended as many as nine schools in her early life in Makrana and in various parts of Greater Mumbai including Malad, Mumbra, Thane, and Andheri. Following her completion of the 10th grade, and passing the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education examination, Sikander enrolled in the Roshan Taneja School of Acting in Mumbai in 1995, graduating from the course a year later.

In 2010 Indian gossip columnist Vicky Lalwani linked Sikander to actor Mimoh Chakraborty – a claim both parties denied.

In mid-2011 speculation began regarding Sikander’s relationship with India-based American actor / musician Alexx O’Nell. The two were spotted with increasing frequency throughout 2011. Sikander confirmed that they were once in a relationship in an interview with Hindustan Times. Sikander and O’Nell’s relationship was confirmed to be over in January 2015.

In January 2016, it was confirmed that Sikander got engaged to American businessman James Milliron in Dubai, UAE.
