This is what I have tried so far

  • Tried giving the shape a drop shadow first and then masked it, but it did not work.
  • I do not have illustrator right now. Are you using a clipping path?

Duplicate the normal shape (the one with the shadow). Now apply the duplicate as the mask on an image. Move the masked image on top of the shape with the drop shadow. Select both pieces and group them.
