Actress Jaya Bhattacharya, who is currently seen as Vasundhara in soap opera “Thapki Pyaar Ki”, considers her co-stars in the show as her family members and often gets home cooked food for them.
While she can be seen as the head of the family on screen, Jaya is also coincidently considered head of the off screen family. In fact, the crew calls her room the “family room” on the set as everyone congregates there when not shooting.
She has a very strong bond with all the cast of the show and is usually seen giving acting and health tips to the younger lot of the actors like Jigyasa Singh (Thapki), Ankit Bathla (Dhruv) and Manish Goplani (Bihaan).
“We all bond really well on the set. All these young bachchas (children) call me ‘Maa’. So like a mother, I share and teach them whatever I can. And during lunch time, all of them come to my room and we have food. Most of them stay away from their family so I get home cooked food for them,” Jaya said in a statement.
The story of “Thapki Pyar Ki”, which airs on Colors, revolves around a girl who stammers. However, she doesn’t let this destroy her cheerful and obedient character.
