Jay Soni Wiki, Age, Height, Family, Wife, Net Worth, Biography & More

Given the unpredictable nature of showbiz, it’s not easy for actors to take a break. However,  Jay Soni was convinced that he needed to take one to reinvent himself. Last seen on  ' Bhaag Bakool Bhssg', he has been out of action for almost two years. While the first year was spent by his wife’s (Pooja) side, as she was expecting their first child, he focussed on transforming himself during the following year.

Jay says, “I wanted to be with Pooja and my child during the first year. The break was extended because I was getting offers to play characters, which I had already explored. I was tired of my chocolate-boy image and needed to break away from it. That’s when I decided to transform and reinvent myself. I stopped venturing out or meeting friends, as that tends to divert your focus. While some mistook it for arrogance, some started assuming that I had disappeared as I was out of work.”

What added fuel to these speculations was the fact that he deleted every single picture of his on his social media handle. “Yes, I deleted my old pictures, as I wanted to make way for the new Jay,” he shares, adding, “I had decided to continue with my passion to reinvent myself till I could, even if it meant selling off my prized bike to sustain during this break. Of course, there was a dry spell, as people don’t envision you in a different space, but I didn't want to give in to the temptation of taking up just another offer.”

While the phase of not being seen on TV was demanding, it was his wife's support that saw him through. He says, “Pooja told me that I didn’t have the body to pull off characters of my choice and that was a reality check for me. She said that I needed to show them that I am capable of pulling off roles other than Mr goody's two shoes.”

 Sasural Genda Phool fame  Jay Soni has been missing from the small screen post his stint in  Bhaag Bakul Bhaag. The actor has stopped being active on social media and attending parties. In fact, the actor has deleted all his pictures from his Instagram account.
A source close to the actor informed us, "Jay has not been making any appearances of late and we notice the actor has been rather aloof. He has deleted his Instagram account and though the account exists, the pictures have been all deleted.” Jay recently embraced fatherhood too. And otherwise quite a social person, he seems to have taken a back seat with socializing as well of late. We hear the actor has been prepping for something and has been rather tight-lipped about the entire thing his friends have been wondering too.

Jay started his career with a small role in the Bollywood film  Dil Maange More, but it was his TV show Sasural Genda Phool that made him a household name. He was also seen in TV shows like Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan, Sasural Genda Phool, and Sanskaar - Dharohar Apno Ki. In 2011, Soni hosted an Indian singing show  Sa Rr Ga Ma Pa L'il Champs 2011. On the personal front, Jay got married to Pooja Shah in an arranged marriage set up in 2014. The couple was recently blessed with a baby girl Aradheea J Sonic.

My Haldi and Sangeet were on 16th." Though few co-actors from Sasural Genda Phool failed to attend the ceremony, the entire cast of his current show Sanskaar was present at the venue to bless the newly married couple. Jay got engaged on 15th October 2013 in Mumbai.

Talking about his honeymoon he further says, "Right now we are going to Goa. The beach and the honeymoon suite sound nice. Our official honeymoon will be around April and the destination is yet unplanned." Jay has taken a leave for 8 days as of now. Unlike other male actors, Jay Soni opted for an arranged marriage and proved himself to be momma's boy. Jay belongs to a very conservative family. In spite of Jay Soni being associated with the glamour world, he has always kept himself away from rumors and link-ups.

When asked who was the ideal couple that he felt existed, Jay answered, "I think every couple has their own charm and happiness. But I look up to my parents as the ideal couple." Jay and Pooja's marriage has been arranged so how was D-Day? "I feel great and blessed since there is no worry or any obstacle. The love is so pure as the motive we met for was marriage."

 Sasural Genda Phool was one of the most popular shows on the Indian television screens. The show was highly appreciated for its different storyline and talented cast. It was a complete entertainment package. The lead pair was played by Jay Soni and Ragini Khanna. The show also starred ace actress Supriya Pilgaokar. Now the show is returning with season two and actor Jay Soni will also be part of the show. 

In the show,  Jay Soni played the role of Ishaan and received a lot of appreciation. The actor spoke exclusively with Pinkvilla, “It feels amazing and very nostalgic coming back on sets and especially for Sasural Genda Phool. And after almost 4 years of break, I am coming back on TV and it feels like I never left it only. And yes it is difficult to get into that daily soap pattern like you know shooting every day and I am preparing myself every day. Like okay, come on let’s go! But this show is a different thing because every day I go home with some learning. And I have always enjoyed shooting for Sasural and it’s the same feeling right now also I am really excited and nervous to be back after four and a half years.”

One of the famous television actors and Sasural Genda Phool fame, Jay Soni is on cloud nine these days. The reason behind his ecstasy is the apple of his eyes, his little baby girl. Well, for the ones who don’t know, Jay Soni and his dear wifey, Pooja Soni became proud parents to a baby girl on April 18, 2018. The couple is enjoying this amazing phase of their lives to the fullest. 

Actor Jay Soni, who was last seen on Bhaag Bakool Bhaag, has been blessed with a girl. His wife Pooja, with who he tied the knot in 2014, delivered the baby on April 18. The ecstatic father tells us, “I am on cloud nine. I can’t even begin to explain how it feels. I was inside the operation theatre with Pooja and I am really proud of her. She was so strong throughout. When the doctor announced that it was a girl, both of us started screaming with joy. I didn’t even realize that I had tears when the baby looked at me for the first time. It was surreal.”He adds, “My daughter was born on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. She is truly a blessing to us. My friends and relatives have been telling me that ‘Laxmi Aayi hai on such an auspicious day.”

Most of the time we talk about how beautiful the journey of those nine months is for mommies-to-be, but little is talked about how fathers feel and their experience of holding their little one in their arms for the first time! A father remains a role model for his child throughout his/her life, after all, who better to help them take those first steps in life and support and stand by them in their every life decision. A father’s love is something that words often fail to define or express, and there’s no love more special than daddy’s love. The experience of holding his child for the first time is so precious that nothing in the world can be compared to it.

Sasural Genda Phool star, Jay Soni can vouch for the same! The boy-next-door and every girl’s crush, Jay got married to a footwear designer, Pooja Shah in an arranged marriage set-up. After a hush-hush engagement ceremony in October 2013, Jay and Pooja tied the knot on February 18, 2014. After 4 years of marital bliss, Jay and Pooja became parents to a little angel, Aradheea J Sonic. Time flew within the blink of an eye as his baby daughter turned one year old on April 18, 2019.

After teasing his fans with the glimpses of his daughter, Jay Soni finally delighted them with the first picture of Aradheea J Sonic. As they all celebrate Aradheea’s first birthday, Jay captioned his post, “Time flies but happiness and joyous warmth of carrying you in my arms remains as precious as it was a year back when I carried you in my arms for the first time. I still can't fathom the depth of my emotions on this day exactly a year back. From that day onwards you continue to remain my reason for smiles and today by sharing your first picture online, I wish to bring smiles to everyone's faces as we all celebrate your 1st birthday. 

On Father’s Day 2018, Jay Soni had posted a glimpse of his baby daughter, holding his finger with her tiny hands. Captioning this glimpse of his two-month-old daughter, Jay had written, “Nobody ever wished me happy men's day or boyfriends day or husbands day or son's day but today my daughter wished me HAPPY FATHERS DAY.. she gave me the privilege to be celebrated as a father.. thank you, my Lil girl. I am grateful to the universe

Expressing his love for kids and how eagerly they were waiting to hold the little one in their arms, in a throwback interview, Jay Soni had stated, “I love kids. They are like a stress buster for me. I can literally spend the whole day with a kid. So, it feels great to know that we’ll soon have a kid of our own. I can’t express it, it’s just that we are waiting for that moment to hold the baby in our hands.” Jay had also talked about what kind of a father he will be and had remarked, “I’ll be a very cool and chilled father. I’m overprotective by nature, so that’ll be there. I will also be a little strict because I don’t want my ward to go in the wrong direction.”

Jay Soni had hosted a baby shower ceremony for his lovely wife, Pooja Soni, and had invited their friends from the industry including Vivek Dahiya, Jay Bhanushali, and Karishma Tanna, to name a few, for the function. While Jay had looked dapper in a blue summer tuxedo, the then-mommy-to-be was glowing in a sea-green gown. But the most hilarious and exciting part of the baby shower ceremony was Jay along with his friends, Vivek and Jay posed with the fake bumps!

As mentioned earlier, Jay Soni and Pooja Shah had met each other through their families in an arranged marriage setup. Soon Cupid struck them, love blossomed, and they exchanged rings in October 2013. On February 18, 2014, Jay Soni and Pooja Soni walked down the aisle and exchanged their wedding vows with parental consent. Sharing the reason why he opted for an arranged marriage, Jay Soni revealed, “The only reason why I opted for an arranged marriage is that I want a simple girl who would lead a happy life. I also want to settle down and my career will take its own natural course. Our parents set up this meeting but once we spent some time together it felt like I have known her for years.”

Sasural Genda Phool actor Jay Soni and wife Pooja Shah welcomed a baby girl on April 18. Pooja, who is also a designer, delivered the little angel at a Mumbai hospital on Wednesday, and both families are currently enjoying the happy phase.

A close friend of Jay Soni shared “Both mother and child are doing good and Jay is over the moon. He has always wanted a baby girl, and with his wish coming true, he is jumping like a kid. Pooja is currently in the hospital but they should arrive home soon after the regular check-ups and formalities.”

Jay had earlier told Bombay Times, “The baby is due in April. I didn’t disclose the news earlier, as we are not allowed to share it till the first trimester is completed. I am extremely excited.”
