She released her first album (entitled Baby Doll, after her adopted stage name) in 2004. She followed up her strong debut with Baby Doll Chapter 2, featuring many hit remixes such as Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar and Rangeela Re.
Her music consists mainly of modernized remixes of old Hindi songs, entailing a very bass-heavy sound with some hip hop elements. She is currently on Saregama India Records. MTV India has largely been responsible for promoting her music, by playing her hot and extremely popular music videos.
She made her acting debut in Mahesh Bhatt’s controversial Kalyug, opposite Emraan Hashmi and fellow-newcomer Kunal Khemu. Shaw’s first role was generally appreciated by critics.
In December 2005, she finished filming on her second venture, Karma, Confessions and Holi, directed by Manish Gupta. She played a news reporter in the movie A Wednesday.
