Young and vibrant Yesha Rughani, who is taking audience by storm with her acting talent as Devi in Zee TV’s Jeet Gayi Piyaa Morre, says her journey has been a learning process.
She shares, “This show has been like a roller coaster ride. I had ups and downs but it has been a learning process for me. I have enjoyed each and every moment and they have been very special to me. It was convenient for me to get into the industry. I was at a flea market wherein I met the producers. Later, I gave an audition for this show and was selected by the makers in my first audition itself,”
Although Yesha hails from Gujarat, surviving in Mumbai was not difficult for her, “I have spent a lot of time of my life in Mumbai. I completed my education in Bachelor’s of Design and Fashion Communication from the Symbiosis Institute of Pune which lasted for four years. Later, I worked for a lot of fashion institutions and stylists. I never considered acting as a profession.
She further continued, “The only barrier in my acting was the language. I was not good with Hindi so I had to work on it. Now, when I receive love from my fans, I am overwhelmed. There have been a lot of messages from them which has touched my heart. One of them was that my smile makes their day which was really special. I am happy that I have been a medium to make someone smile through my performance. ”
When ask about has she been a TV fan before joining the industry, “I used to watch Ishqbaaaz before entering this industry. I admired Shabir Ahluwalia. I met him during a shoot too and also shared my thoughts with him. I also got a picture clicked with him.”
Yesha shares that the recognition amongst fans make her feel special. “It is a wonderful feeling. I went to a store and the lady referred me as Devi. I am glad that audience remember me from my character name. When I go to my hometown, my relatives and friends call me Devi. Sometimes I tell them that I am their Yesha and not Devi. However, It’s a good feeling.”
On an end note, Yesha avers, “It has been a wonderful experience working with Krrip Kapur Suri. He is a great actor and very supportive too. He has been very patient and calm with me.”
