"I am thrilled to be part of 'Humsafars'. It’s an unusual love story and I'm excited about my character Arzoo. She is a smart, sensitive and vivacious girl from Lucknow who comes to Mumbai to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer," Shivya said in a statement.

Talking further about her character, she said: "She is independent and knows that you can achieve your dreams only through hard work. The character is very real and I am sure the audience will love it."

The show also features actor Harshad Chopra as a heartless fashion mogul named Sahir.

Set against the backdrop of the glamorous but ruthless fashion world, ‘Humsafars’ is said to be a passionate love story between Arzoo and Sahir -- two imperfect and contrasting individuals.

The show will go on air on Sony Entertainment Television 22nd September.
