Actor Soniya Kaur, who is part of Rajan Shahi’s Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, says that she loves being part of the show. The actor auditioned for a part and bagged it after a meeting with Rajan. “I got a call from the production and so I went to the audition. Then after two days, I got a call from them saying that Rajan Sir really liked my look and my acting and that he has called me for a meeting. After meeting me, Rajan sir said that he got his Jasmeet, which is my character in Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke,” says Soniya, who has been seen in shows such as Anamika, Hum Hain Na and Bade Bhaiya Ki Dulhaniya.
Talking about her character, she says. “I am married in a Marawari family but I am the only one who is a Punjabi. So, my accent, my style, my look, everything is different from others.”
She adds, “I am a Punjabi in real life too, so I know the basic things about how we Punjabis are…how we talk, react, eat, dress up. So, it is quite easy for me to play Jasmeet on screen. In my real life also, I am very energetic and positive and I keep smiling because I love smiling.”
Soniya is a big fan of the title of the show too. “Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke is a very lovely title. As Rishta means relationship and in our life, we see there are many different kinds of relationships such as brother, husband, daughter, etc. So, in this show also you will be able to see strong bonds between various people. I feel this is an apt title for this show,” she says.
The actor loves working with Rajan as well. “It is amazing, Rajan sir is such a positive person. I am from Jammu and my city is all about temples so from childhood I am into praying and all. When I met Rajan sir, I saw that even he is into pooja and strongly believes in God. So, I really liked that about him,” he says.
