Bollywood Superstar? Just Who Exactly is Shenaz Treasury? What you need to know about the Bubbly MTV IGGY VJ


Indian Actress Shenaz Treasury

 After 2NE1’s  MTV IGGY event last night, I found myself frantically searching Google for any information regarding the bubbly VJ Shenaz who was introduced to us in the crowd as a Bollywood Superstar. Now, being a self-proclaimed Bollywood buff myself, when the intro screen faded to black inside the Best Buy theatre last night, I excitedly waited in anticipation of seeing maybe Priyanka Chopra (since she was in the US recently recording portions of her first studio album) or at least Sophie Choudhry (who is a sometimes Bollywood actress/singer but bonafide MTV-Asia (India) VJ. Instead, when the LIVE feed went to the street camera we were greeted by a woman they called Shenaz Treasury of whom I had never heard of up until that moment…or so I thought.  I hadn’t heard of MTV IGGY either but that’s another story entirely. Anyway, back to the Shenaz story, she was positioned outside with the Blackjacks who were unlucky enough not to make it into the Best New Band in the World Concert, getting their feedback and at one point she joined her colleagues in the studio dressed in her Bollywood attire shaking a leg to an impromptu song and dance number.  The Blackjacks in the crowd went wild for her because she exuded so much effervescence and energy and rumours started floating that she’s one of Bollywood’s biggest stars.

Shenaz Treasurywala’s Bollywood Credits According to Wikipedia:  Indian actress/Model who began acting in Tollywood movies (Telugu film industry) and crossed over to Bollywood (Hindi film industry) in her Filmfare Award (their equivalent of the Oscars) Nominated for Best Supporting actress role in the Shahid Kapoor/Amrita Rao film (Ishq Vishk). Her other Bollywood films include Hum Tum with Rani Mukherjee and Saif Ali Khan, Aagey Se Right with Shreyas Talpade & Kay Kay Menon, Radio with Himesh Reshamiyya & most recently in the highly acclaimed super hit film Delhi Belly with Imran Khan.

Okay Shenaz, I stand corrected, you are a Bollywood actress just not (at least at this point) a Bollywood Superstar. Let’s blame Sway for the over-hype, after-all the man did also insinuate last night that MTV is/was responsible for bringing K-POP to the mainstream. I’m still awaiting YouTube’s response to that.

Celebrating @Fashionwidget’s 500th Blogpost as the Fierce Fashionistas of K-Pop #2NE1 Take Over New York City @MTVIGGY

#500 is 2NE1 STYLE↓

The Streets of New York City pumped with a different kind of bass when the ladies of 2ne1 touched down at JFK last week. Fans or should I say “Blackjacks” (as they are popularly known) were seen turning up the speakers on any portable device that could legally play music in the streets while emulating dance-steps made popular by the collective of CL, Minzy, Dara & Bom in celebration of the iconic K-Pop (Korean Pop) group’s arrival. This trip marks the first visit by the girls as a group to New York City and is indeed a rare occasion for many K-pop fans. They arrived on a seasonably cold, rainy school-day morning yet many die-hard fans still managed to make the trip to the airport to welcome them.


Both resident and visiting Blackjacks have since been seen stylishly roaming the streets of Manhattan in the hopes of catching a glimpse of their favourite girl from the group. The all-girl group is Stateside to attend and perform at MTV IGGY’s Best Band In The World Concert (more information below) and as seen through Twitter tweets from the girls who have been sightseeing, photo-shooting, meeting & greeting their fans, they are enjoying their stay thus far.  A selected groups of lucky contest winners will get to see the girls perform live as announced by MTV IGGY who had previously conducted a raffle for fans to win tickets.

2NE1 arrive at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards

Blackjacks have also been spotted in Manhattan waving signs, playing music & styled up in looks similar to 2NE1’s signature style which is credited mostly to the favourite designer for the girls, Jeremy Scott.  The concert will be streamed LIVE from the MTV IGGY website, for more details on where you can watch and to learn more about groups performing please see and visit the links below:
