Noraishah Abdul Aziz (born May 14, 1971) or better known by her commercial name Nasha Aziz, is a Malaysian model and actress. She was born in Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
She started her career as a model in 1989. She was introduced to the modelling industry by actress and model Tiara Jacquelina. She continued to build her fame as a model in Malaysia and declined an offer of a New York modelling contract because of religious and cultural factors. She then branched out into acting. She was given the title of Malaysia’s number one supermodel. She appeared in commercials there for products such as Nescafe Classic, Avon, Pantene and Panasonic.
One of the most high-profile spy camera incidents involved “Nasha Aziz in 2002. The 20-minute VCD which showed her walking around nude in her Shahzan Court apartment while chatting on the phone, sold like hotcakes nationwide. Nasha had noticed something amiss when she saw a tiny camera hidden in the air-conditioning unit of her apartment. The one who responsible the inappropriate work, Ahmad Bakhtiar Abdul Kayoom (owner of the apartment) was sentenced to six months’ jail for trespassing and outraging Nasha’s modesty.
Presently, Nasha is the face of Avon and Polo Ralph Lauren in Malaysia. This is her third year (2010) as the face of fashion giant Polo Ralph Lauren. In a recent interview, she stated that she is more focused on her modelling than acting career for now.
