Acting career[edit]


Patil was cast in a thirteen episode fiction show on MTV India, called MTV Rush, a show based on a fictional college festival called Rush, which was directed by filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar and slated to be aired in 2012.[9]

In 2013, he played the protagonist in the 6th episode of MTV Webbed called "Even Family is Fair Play", where he portrayed the character of a sexually confused teenager.[6]

In 2014, he also played lead roles in two episodes (42nd and 68th) of Yeh Hai Aashiqui.[10][11]


In 2012, Patil was cast as the male lead in Nasha, where he played the role of Saahil, a teenage student who falls in love with his drama teacher Anita played by Poonam Pandey.[12] He was called the "surprise packet of the film" by Taran Adarsh, who noted his ease in front of the camera.[13] Khalid Mohamed, reviewing for the Deccan Chronicle, called his performance in the film "particularly impressive, confident and nuanced, without ever going over the top". Mohamed also stated, "surely, he deserved a better first film".[14] The Mumbai Mirror stated that "Shivam plays it stiff and not terribly expressive. This ultimately works for his character Sahil, and is completely intentional."[15]
