Jiya was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra on 17 April 1995. Unfortunately, when she turned 13 her parents separated and filed a divorce. This became a traumatic situation for her. She was asked in an interview about being criticised by people, she said
“bohot, I was criticised since I was little, meri khud ki family ne criticise kiya hai, obviously agar family wale kare hai toh baaki kyu nahi karenge. I was very shy and zyada baat nahi karti thi.” Furthermore, she told that as she was shy and introverted, people considered her as dumb. She said, “Even if I was dumb, these are kids, ye mitti ka dher hai and you have to shape them in a beautiful pot and that’s what people around me were supposed to do, especially my family.” Then she praised her mom and said that she made her do these things and that is why she is successful.
