This will be Jayati’s foray into the digital platform. Jayati has had a huge body of work on TV with shows Sasural Simar Ka, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii etc.
We buzzed Jayati and she confirmed the news saying, “I am one of the many fortunate actors who have started their acting careers with Balaji Telefilms. My first show was Itihaas and then ‘Kanyadaan’ and now after so many years I am stepping into the digital world and that too with ALTBalaji. So it feels like going back to my roots. I am playing Miss Bose in the show, a very layered character. Her actions create humorous situations and she has a dark side too. My biggest excitement to be a part of Puncch Beat is that I will be working with a generation that I am in awe of.”
