- In an interview, while talking about her acting debut with “Bebaakee” (2020), Shivjyoti said,
I am thrilled to make my debut with this amazing show, produced by ALTBalaji. So far, audiences have only seen me in commercials. Now, I am all set to foray into the digital space and showcase my acting skills. I had an absolute blast working with my co-stars who made me feel at home on set. I can’t contain my excitement and am waiting to see the response from viewers and critics alike. I’m hoping that the audiences will love Kainaat with all their heart and make this show a resounding success.”
- During an interview, while talking about her preparations for the role of ‘Kainaat Alqaazi’ in ALTBalaji’s “Bebaakee,” Shivjyoti said,
With this being my very first show, preparing for the role was so very important. That said, I had very little time on hand to get a grasp of things as I was the last person to be roped in on the show. To catch up, I took a week from the production team and got to speed by watching a couple of Muslim-centric shows where the characters spoke Urdu. Doing so and getting the accent for the show was very important, as that is one of the prime essences of Bebaakee. If I hadn’t nailed the mannerisms of Kainaat, it would have killed the vibe. Kainaat is both a Punjabi as well as a Muslim girl, so I had to strike the perfect balance between saying ‘Haanji papaji’ and ‘Ammi’ on the other side. Watching these shows helped me a lot!”
