DUBAI: Model Shanina Shaik is expanding her already impressive CV and branching out into acting, she revealed on Instagram this week.
The Victoria’s Secret beauty, whose father is Saudi-Pakistani and mother is Lithuanian-Australian, is set to appear in “Greed,” a British comedy about the uber-rich.
The film also stars Hollywood’s Isla Fisher, British comedian Steve Coogan and David Mitchell and is directed Michael Winterbottom, the man behind “A Mighty Heart” and “The Trip.”
Shaik has shared a string of photos of Mykonos, where shooting is taking place, on Instagram.
The model also starred in a video for Etihad Airways, which she shared on her Instagram page over the weekend.
In the clip, she boards a flight to Paris and waxes lyrical about the service and food, adding that she “really enjoyed the Arabic mezze plate and being served my favorite Arabic coffee and dates.”
“Thank you @etihadairways for the amazing trip to Paris! I arrived fresh and relaxed!! Being a model I’m always in and out of a city and never able to see the sights. #etihadairways created an amazing trip that allowed me to discover all of Paris,” she captioned the video, in which she wanders the streets of Paris after the flight.
Shaik’s busy schedule has meant that she missed her husband’s birthday last week.
“I love you like how your wife loves chocolate cake … and you know that’s A LOT!!! I wish I could be with you to celebrate your born day but I know your family and loved ones will take care of that,” she captioned a photograph of the newly married couple on Instagram.
The model married her long-time beau Gregory Andrews on musician Lenny Kravitz’s private island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas in May.
The couple promptly followed the wedding up with a bash in Miami that was attended by likes of Bella Hadid and model Hailey Baldwin.
Reverend Run of Run DMC performed the ceremony as family, friends and a handful of celebrity guests gathered for the nuptials, including Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross, as well as models Nadine Leopold and Hannah Ferguson.
