But whenever I met her, I feel that little emptiness and sadness in her eyes. At the same time, she is very overwhelmed meeting me that I am playing the character and reliving the moment again. Yesterday I spoke to her and she said, 'I am still on the third episode. I am gathering strength and maybe I will watch it.' So I feel that it will take time, everybody takes time." Karishma also revealed that Jigna is currently staying in Mumbai's Ghatkopar area. According to several reports, Jigna is now a tarot reader and healer.
