Who is Suhani Shah?
Do you believe in magic? No? Well here is Suhani Shah to prove you wrong. Kickstarting her career at the tender age of seven, Suhani knew she didn’t want to pursue a profession that everyone else was pursuing. With the support of her encouraging parents, 23-year-old Suhani has done over 5,000 shows across the globe.
Suhani who prefers to be known as an illusionist rather than a magician says, “Magic is so exciting. Every time I see the audience react in awe, I’m flattered. I love being on stage. My parents have always told me to do my best in whatever I do otherwise I shouldn’t do it. Hopefully that’s what I'm doing!” she laughs.
The type of magic she does involves fooling the mind. In her many shows she has levitated cars, pierced swords through people and more. “I don’t do birthday parties. My shows are not catered to children. When it comes to magic even a 50-year-old is like a 5-year-old. They get excited and are intrigued by magic.”
Apart from playing tricks on your mind, she actually helps nurture the mind. She has started SUHANI Mindcare, a clinic in Goa, that offers therapies to nourish the mind. The clinic has many relaxation rooms, counselling, treatment of psychological disorders and more. “We work on the human psyche. We even have artists who come here to work on creativity,” she adds.
There are many facets to Suhani Shah’s personality. She is an illusionist and hypnotherapist. She has written five books and is a life coach and corporate trainer. She conducts workshops on controlling the mind. She works with people to rid them of addictions like alcoholism, chain smoking, drugs etc, issues that call for much more than just the wave of a wand.
