During an interview, Sanaya Irani said that when she was in school, she got a lot of mean comments about her appearance. Once, she even heard a family say in Gujarati that she looked like a monkey. During an appearance on Zoom’s By Invite Only, Sanaya said, “When I was in a boarding school in Ooty… I am really fair, if everybody has noticed, and I was ten times fairer then.

The actress added, “I heard a Gujarati family once say, ‘She looks like a monkey’. They were saying it in Gujarati but I knew Gujarati, they didn’t know that. We were in school, eating ice cream and they were like ‘look at her’ because I had red cheeks, red nose, all of that. They were like, ‘She looks like a monkey.’ So, for me, when people looked at me, I always connected it to ‘they are going to say something weird about me’.” Sanaya said that she ‘always stood out’ when she was younger, because of her appearance, and did not like that. She added that she wanted to blend in with everyone else.

On the work front, Sanaya made her television debut with Left Right Left in 2007.  She then played the reclusive and studious Gunjan Bhushan in Miley Jab Hum Tum, where she fell in love with television actor Mohit Sehgal. They tied the knot in 2016. In 2017, they participated in Nach Baliye 8, where they were adjudged the second runners-up. Sanaya also acted in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon.
