Jaya Bhattacharya became synonymous with her character 'Payal' from Ekta Kapoor's cult show 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'. The show which ran successfully for seven-eight years, saw Jaya portray a negative character, 'Payal', who happens to be Mihir's jilted lover and ensures that there is marital discord between Mihir and Tulsi, played by Smriti Irani.
Smriti Irani soon quit the show to join politics and has now become the Information and Broadcasting and Textiles Minister in the Government of India under the BJP government. However, Jaya Bhattacharya is going through a rough patch personally and financially. The actress who was last seen in the television show 'Thapki Pyar Ki' is finally bankrupt as well as out of work. In an interview to Telly Chakkar, this is Jaya Bhattacharya's current ordeal.
Jaya's parents planned to leave for a trip to Lucknow some months back and she assigned a house renovation contract to the interior developers. All was smooth until her mother suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with problems related to her heart. Her mother, 79 is being monitored for an irregular ECG and is in the ICU currently.
Jaya averred, "My mother has been admitted from 26 November. I am in a deep fix as all my finances are down the drain. Due to a renovation contract for my house, I am currently put up at my rakhi brother's place. Though there is a lot of liberty in taking decisions and doing things, I don’t have anybody whom I can depend on or whose shoulder I can cry on. I am a strong woman and I have never given up. I will never. But I am in a terrible fix and badly in need of work."
