Known for her splendid roles in TV shows like Meri Hanikarak Biwi and Queens Hai Hum, actress Jiya Shankar has been roped in to play the new lead in the second season of ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s Virgin Bhaskar. Playing the role of Pakhi, Jiya will be seen romancing actor Anant Joshi aka Bhaskar Tripathi in the series. Her character is one of the acute girls who are passionate about earning loads of money which makes her a very fast learner. Her money-minded trait makes her find a Jugaad to the toughest of life’s problems, much to the delight of everyone around her.

 Speaking about her role, Jiya Shankar quipped, “I’m glad to play one of the leads in Virgin Bhaskar season 2. The role of Pakhi was pretty challenging for me as I’ve never played a character hailing from UP. In addition to that, my character being so layered and filled with different shades is what made me take this project up. I just hope to do complete justice to the role and I hope people give as much love to this season as they gave to the first.”

Season 1 saw Anant Joshi, as the lead character of Bhaskar Tripathi, a man who wants to lose his virginity to the love of his life. Bearing the constant taunts of being a virgin, Bhaskar channelizes his frustration and feelings through an adult novel that turns out to be a best-seller. But his ‘Bad Boy’ character doesn’t go down well with his lady love Vidhi, played by Rutpanna Aishwarya. The second season picks up right from where the highly-successful first season ended. The fun-filled moments see Bhaskar and his gang try to find the right ‘Totka’ to end his virginity while trying to keep at bay the one person who could be just the right match not only for Bhaskar but also for Bad Boy! Will Bhasskar reunite with his first love Vidhi or will he fall in love with Pakhi? It sure remains to be an entertaining watch as we find ourselves waiting for the upcoming second season.

It’s a great opportunity and I can’t put into words my happiness. I am ecstatic to be a part of Sony SAB’s Goodnight India and feel a sort of responsibility upon my shoulders to give my best. I would want my well-wishers to remember me as someone who takes upon new challenges and gives more than a hundred percent to every project.

Yes, I think the concept of the show is very unique, and people have never watched me do something like this before. For me, it is very motivating as I am trying my hands at something that will help my fans get to know more of Jiya as a person. I have added elements of my personality to every character. However, with this show, I am getting an opportunity to showcase more about myself as a person.

It’s been two years since we have been going through such challenging situations, and things have been more difficult lately. Before going to bed, I definitely try to watch something light that would help me get peaceful sleep and take the daily stress out of my mind.

While growing up I wanted to do a lot of things. I started my journey with theatre and used to sit through auditions, watching other people perform. I didn’t have the courage to face the camera and the day I did that, I was shivering. For me, as an artist, it has been an exciting ride so far. There has been some great learning throughout, which has helped me be where I am today.

I think I have always been the kind of person who loves challenges. So, when this opportunity came to me, I couldn't have taken it up as another challenge upon my sleeves. My career has been very challenging, like everything that I didn't even think I could do has happened, and I did pretty well with it. This is a different concept altogether, and I am looking forward to this chapter of my life. 

Sony SAB has always been special to me, and my character Susheela from Kaatelal & Sons is very close to my heart. So, it definitely feels like being back home, and I am extremely excited and thrilled to be a part of this show. With Goodnight India, I am venturing into a new space, and I can’t thank the makers for bestowing their trust in me and allowing me to try something starkly different and expand my reach as an artist.

Yes, I think the concept of the show is very unique, and people have never watched me do something like this before. For me, it is very motivating as I am trying my hands at something that will help my fans get to know more of Jiya as a person. With every character I have played, I have added elements of my personality into it. However, with this show, I am getting an opportunity to showcase more about myself as a person. 

I believe it's been two years since we have been going through such challenging situations, and things have been more difficult lately than usual. Before going to bed, I definitely try to watch something light that would help me with a peaceful goodnight’s sleep and take the daily stress out of my head. Now that Goodnight India will come on-air, I guess I would be watching my own show before going to bed for a good night's sleep and would recommend the same to everybody else as well.

I have always been very observant and never really had to do any special preparations for the roles that I have portrayed on television. This time, with Goodnight India, I will be going with the flow and learning something new each day. It’s a great learning experience as it will be my first time being a host, and I would have Amit Tandon by my side to help and support me during the show. So, I am really excited about this project, and hopefully, it will turn out well for all of us.

I think it’s a great opportunity and I can’t put into words my happiness. I am ecstatic to be a part of a show like Goodnight India, and I feel a sort of responsibility upon my shoulders to give my best and put my best foot forward. I would want my well-wishers to remember me as someone who takes upon new challenges and gives her more than 100% to every project. Though I am a little nervous, I am excited as well and looking forward to playing a host on television for the very first time and enjoying this spell-binding journey ahead on the show.
