Releasing on June 4, 2021, it is a fantasy drama Sweet Tooth that follows the life of hybrid deer-boy Gus in the post-apocalyptic world and Aliza of course has an as much prominent role (of Rani Singh).
So, before you find yourself binge-watching the new series here’s all you need to know about her.

Aliza Vellani Parents
Aliza’s parents immigrated to Vancouver, Canada from Tanga, Tanzania. For someone who was raised in an Indo-East African culture, Aliza explained her parents as more liberal than her teenage character of Layla Siddiqui’s folks.
Back in 2011, during an interview, Aliza revealed how as she got past her early years she has become more closer with my parents in terms of communicating, understanding, and accepting their differences.
Meanwhile recently (i.e. in 2019) she featured on a South Asian Lifestyle magazine together with her mom. The mother-daughter pair had adorned themselves in Indian wears.
More about Aliza’s tightly knitted family: Her mom lost her eldest sister and Aliza’s Tashu aunty (just a few months before Aliza’s wedding). In memory of the deceased Aliza had worn her aunty’s golden anklets on her wedding day.
Not to Miss, Aliza also has a sister, Sabrina Vellani. Just like Aliza, the younger sibling is also a BFA grad and seeking a career as an actor. (Trivia: Aliza studied BFA in Theatre at Simon Fraser University from 2009 – 2014.)

Aliza was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Ethnicity-wise, she is an Indo-Canadian.

Is Aliza Vellani Married?

Over heels in love with him, Aliza has never shied away from openly discussing her feelings for Jamshed. She fondly calls him — her love, life as well as the root of her laughter. Be it on their anniversary or his birthday, she would never miss a chance to come up with something like,
“Happy Birthday to the man I am lucky enough to call my husband. You are so incredibly talented, intelligent, kind and overall a beautiful human being. I cannot wait for what the world has in store for you @jamshedcolah. ♥️”
Except for expressing her feelings for him, Aliza never actually shared who her husband is. From what Jamshed’s Instagram says, he is a street photographer in Vancouver.
