I like his shows and have kept a track of Yeh Rishta for so many years.” He told TOI.
Jai also revealed, he has lost a few kilos for the show and has shed some habits to fit into the role.
He said, “I had reduced a few kilos for my web show and then I further reduced a few more kilos for the show. And now it has helped me for Yeh Rishta because Akshara is a girl in her early 20s and many people shared told me that I look just a few years older than her. I like to keep fit and avoid parties or late-night binge eating. I have a strict regime and probably that’s what helps. Besides, it helps in my work, too. Right now, I am looking forward to this role.” Also Read: Nakuul Mehta Announces His Exit From Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2, Here’s What He Said
