TV makers are always churning their brains trying to find new ways to keep the viewers hooked on to the storyline. Popular TV show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlataa Hai is also one of those shows which has maintained the viewership for many years now and is still full of new twists and turns every now and then. After Neil Birla’s (Paras Priyadarshan) track ends, Jay Soni is all set to enter the show. The actor will play a positive role; he will play Akshara’ friend in the show.
Jay is a name that doesn’t need any introduction. He was last seen in Sasural Genda Phool 2 in April and then was busy in shoots of a web show. Now he will be a part of YRKKH and talking about the same, he shared with Etimes,, “It’s one of the longest running shows and so I am curious how it has continued to keep viewers engaged. My role is interesting, I play the new man opposite Akshara and I felt that it would be a good opportunity to work with Rajan Shahi. I like his shows and have kept a track of Yeh Rishta for so many years.”
Jay has reduced weight and is looking younger and fitter. He said, “I had reduced a few kilos for my web show and then I further reduced a few more kilos for the show. And now it has helped me for Yeh Rishta because Akshara is a girl in her early 20s and many people shared told me that I look just a few years older than her. I like to keep fit and avoid parties or late-night binge eating. I have a strict regime and probably that’s what helps. Besides, it helps in my work, too. Right now, I am looking forward to this role.”
