Commented Sushmita, “Shama always knew that she just has to pick up her phone and give me the date and time to be with her in her dreams. I am so happy for her. Her fashion sense is excellent and she is very stylish. I am really liking her designs. And love the gown she has given me. It’s strapless and called confidence. What could have been a better gift for me…!” Jackie Shroff, too, came for a short while to give his blessings inspite of a tragedy in the family. After all a commitment to a friend is a commitment.

Shama Sikandar has launched her own design label SAISHA with western and indo western designs. She has also stocked shoes, purses, clutches, and few other accessories to make everything available under one roof. One stop shopping for fashion conscious women. Says Jackie Shroff, “I like the fact that all her designs are so feminine and flowy, so soft and colours are so appealing. This makes a woman look so beautiful.”
Says Shama , “Indian women are so beautiful but most of the time, they do not know how to compliment their beauty with clothes properly. My designs are not just to cater to their high end design requirements but also to be their stylist. India has been treated as a second class destination by most of the international design houses because we tend to accept whatever is offered. My idea is to make Indian women demand the best and latest that is available for the other markets too.,” comments Shama Sikandar.
Shama has played the role of Puja in serial YEH MERI LIFE HAI, was main lead Shunya in SEVEN of Yash Raj on Sony TV and has done few episode of Aahat. She had also participated in the reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena with Vinod Kambli. Shama has been walking the ramp for elite designers like Ritu Kumar, Nisha Jamwal, Shaina NC and Neeta Lulla. “Currently I am also into learning to play Violin,” she laughs. Other hobbies are Dancing, Kick Boxing, Swimming and gyming.
