Born to Kashmiri parents in Britain, Ferena Wazier was exposed to two very different worlds in her childhood. She often used to take breaks from the modern life of Scotland and visit her native village in Kashmir. After finishing her schooling in Scotland she studied acting for six months at Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London.
Initially, her parents weren’t very supportive of her passion for acting, but gradually they accepted Ferena’s choice.
It was in 2004, when Ferena visited India for the camel fair in Pushkar, that she caught the eye of a professional photographer and began her modeling career thereafter.
She also did a workshop with Satyadev Dubey and theatre with Alyque Padamsee. Given her angelic beauty, Ferena did not take long to come to the notice of filmmakers in Bollywood.
Ferena has begun her Bollywood career with a film each by Ketan Mehta and Soni Razdan. She is also acting in two international projects – one by Bosnian director Danis Tanovic and another by a German director.
