Born in Wales on June 20th 1988, Shefali was brought up in a Muslim family, along with five siblings - of whom she is the youngest. Shefali is of Bangladeshi origin; her parents had migrated to England from Sylhet, Bangladesh, in the 1980s, when many Bangladeshis migrated to the UK. While her first role was as an uncredited refugee in Kannathil Muthamittal, she gained notice for playing the role of Parvati Patil in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire film. She plays Harry Potter's Yule Ball date in Goblet of Fire. Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter in the film, spoke at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in London, told This Is London: "I had a dance scene with Shefali. She was completely gorgeous." Shefali landed the coveted role of Parvati while she was still a student in her final year at Waverley School in Birmingham. She is currently completing her A Levels in English Language and Literature, Sociology and Religious Studies at The Sixth Form College, Solihull. Her studies coincide with shooting of the next installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, where she will reprise her role as Parvati Patil.
