While the daily soap was full of mystery with Yash (Sehban Azim) and Pooja (Namita Dubey) dying under mysterious circumstances, Zoya (Jennifer Winget) and Aditya (Harshad Chopda) are trying their best to save Zosh and get over the heartbreak. But with Rajveer’s dramatic entry, the show has given a whole new twist. He is hell bent to prove Zoya and Aditya the murderers of their partners. But nobody knows why it is so.

Bepannaah spoiler alert! Zoya and Aditya to take shelter in a jungle after escaping from Rajveer

Colors TV’s Bepannaah went through a major change this week. While the show opened at the fifth position, it slowly went missing from the top 10 list. Don’t forget the competition the show was facing. Kundali Bhagya has been the top show for ages now. Thus the makers took a decision and changed the show timing. From this week, the show is airing in a new time slot. While the chances of the show rising on the TRP chart are high, the makers are leaving no stoned unturned to make it big and beat the other shows. While Zoya (Jennifer Winget) and Aditya (Harshad Chopra) are getting married to save Zosh company, Rajveer is hell bent to prove them the murderers of Yash (Sehban Azim) and Pooja (Namita Dubey). Helping him is Mahi (Vaishnavi Dhanraj) as Aditya has rejected her. If you have seen the last episode, then you know that Rajveer has come to Hooda mansion to arrest Zoya and Aditya. While Zoya faints, Aditya asks for a doctor. When Zoya regains consciousness, Aditya plans to run away. Zoya agrees to support him as they have no other options left. Aditya and Zoya will elope and Ranveer will catch them and try to shoot them, but we know what will happen next.

After escaping from the Hooda mansion, the duo will take shelter at Zosh employee, Bobby’s house. But soon, Bobby’s wife will call up the police and this will compel Aditya and Zoya to run from there as well. Soon Rajveer will catch them and aim a gun at the duo. He will declare for a surrender or he will shoot. However, Zoya and Aditya will sprinkle chilli powder on him and run away. On finding Rajveer after them, they will run and reach a jungle. They will be forced to take shelter in a jungle to avoid Rajveer. With Aditya’s hope on his father Mr Hooda (Rajesh Khatter) and Zoya’s trust on Aditya, the coming episodes will tell how they survive this situation. The other intriguing factor is why Rajveer is trying to prove Zoya and Aditya guilty of a crime which they haven’t committed. With all these questions, Bepannaah is building its mystery quotient.

Exclusive Interview! Jennifer Winget on her growing popularity: I have high expectations from myself; I am my biggest critic

Talented, gorgeous, intelligent and hugely popular, Jennifer Winget is truly the reigning queen of Indian Television. She is currently seen as Zoya Siddiqui on the romantic-thriller Bepannaah. Her role is completely different from what she did in her previous show, Beyhadh, which is considered as a landmark serial in more ways than one. While it is easy to get popular by one successful show, sustaining success in showbiz is always tough, but Jennifer has managed to do so in a career spanning over 16 years. The Saraswatichandra actress has fans the world over, including in far off countries like Argentina and Mexico. She is one of the prettiest ladies around but in recent times, it has been more just than beauty for this diva. With Beyhadh, she proved she’s a risk-taker like none other and literally set a benchmark for everyone in the TV industry. Ask any young actor/actress, which role they did like to reprise, and pat comes the answer, Maya Mehrotra. Young TV hunks openly admit that they have a crush on her, and she is #goals for her fans on social media. It is easy to get trapped in a bubble with such unprecedented popularity but Jennifer is getting more and more grounded as she gets older.  Make no mistake, she has huge expectations from herself and confesses that she is her biggest critic. Bollywood Life caught up with the lady on her birthday for an exclusive chat….

How do you plan to celebrate your birthday?
Since I’ve been working round the clock, I just want to rest and take it easy on my birthday. I’m taking off somewhere outside the city for a few days with my closest friends and my dogs of course!

What do you plan to gift yourself?
Some much needed TLC!

People are loving Zoya in Bepannaah. Did you expect this kind of response? 
Honestly it was and still is kind of sinking in. I was very apprehensive when we started out to be honest; about how people would react to Zoya especially after Maya but I’m glad that audiences are liking this opposite side with Zoya and that encourages me to keep going and do further justice to her character.

Your popularity supersedes that of many Bollywood actresses. What do you think people relate to Jennifer or your characters? 
I think it’s mix of everything. While my characters have been loved and appreciated, I’ve also grown as a human being over the years that I’ve been associated with Television. So I think, it’s my growth as an actor and as a human being that keeps people on board with me. Believe me there’s a lot more work still left to be done. I have high expectations from myself! I am my biggest critic. (Also Read: Jennifer Winget and Surveen Chawla’s dance video from Kasauti Zindagi Kay is going viral on social media)

People are gaga over Harshad and your chemistry. How is it sharing screen space with him?
I am happy to see people liking us as a pair onscreen. What makes it fun is that it doesn’t take us much effort to portray our characters. He’s a great co-actor and our friendship leaves good room for chemistry to make its way in or out as and when the script demands it.

Everyone is very keen to see you in Bollywood. Do you plan to enter into films or is it immaterial for you? 
I believe in doing good projects that help me grow as an actor, the medium doesn’t matter.

The naivete of Zoya has taken us by surprise. What do you love about her?
It’s taken me by surprise too. Her innocence really appeals to me.

The pressure of TRPs is immense nowadays and channels pull plugs on shows quite fast. Does that worry you?
Worry leaves the room, the day I say yes to a script. There’s no questioning it that follows after. I love what I do and it’s important that this stays consistent. So, I only bother myself about how I up my game with my character.

Besides your acting, people are gushing over Jennifer the style diva? Whom do you credit for it?
I’m blessed with a talented team that has stuck by me for years.They’re my style warriors and we feed off each other’s energy. It takes a whole army to style me.
