STAR Plus redefines feminine emotion with its tale of two girls Rashi and Gopi, as they set out on their journey of marriage. The serial Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, launches this Monday.

Gopi a naïve orphan girl has always been ill treated by her aunt and cousin. All her life being deprived of a mother’s love, Gopi lives with immense hopes in her heart with only one expectation from life - an affectionate life partner and finding a mother in her Sasuma. Will she find that motherly love? Watch the serial to find out, but to know more about Gopi AKA Jiaa Maanek, read on.

Q: Tell us something about yourself

I am from Mumbai and I have graduated in Mass Media. In college I did commercials like Vaitka Hair Oil and Amul and then I did my first film Naa Ghar Ke Ghaat Ke, in which I played daughter to Neena Gupta and Om Puri.

Q: How did you land the role of Gopi?

I auditioned for the show Palkon Ki... but was too young for the role. But they had my profile and asked me to audition for this role, which I got.

Q: How do you see Gopi?

Gopi is an extremely soft spoken. She has lost her mom dad and stays with her mama and mami. She is uneducated but has family values.

Q: How has it been working with STAR Plus?

Oh, it's nice. I am very glad that I am working with No 1 channel so early in my career.

Let's do a rapid fire round of questions now

Birth Date: 18th Feb.

Interests:

Dancing, acting, horse-riding, designing pottery, mehndi, making chocolate!

When did the acting bug bite?

In childhood.

Favorite Actor: Salman Khan

Favorite Actress: Kareena Kapoor

Favorite Film:DDLJ

A role I would love to reprise: Geet of Jab We Met

Did you attend acting classes? No.

Preconceived notion of the television industry: I thought it wouldn't be easy for a newcomer. But I learnt that contacts were possible to be made from auditions.

If not an actor: Something else in the media. I love the media industry.

Don’t forget to watch Jiaa in STAR Plus' new show Saath Nibhana Saathiya, which starts from Monday (May 3rd) at 7 pm.
