The actor who is popularly called Zoya Farooqui aka Sanam turns 26 today

Born on May 29, 1988, Surbhi Jyoti became a household name ever since she began doing Zee TV’s Qubool Hai. Fans fell in love with the actor’s quirky nature and bindass attitude both on and off screen.

In a short span of her telly career, Surbhi has already had three heroes falling at her feet and proclaiming their love for her, only ‘coz the script demanded it. She romanced Karan Singh Grover when Qubool Hai began. Fans loved their crackling chemistry, which in turn worked wonders for the daily soap.When Karan Singh decided to quit the show and move on with his life, Raqesh Vashisth came on board as the new Asad Ahmed Khan. People flaked the jodi ‘coz of lack of chemistry. Although, Surbhi claims that acting was more fun with Raqesh than Karan.

The daily soap then took a 22-year leap, Zoya Farooqui died but Surbhi remained on the show as Sanam. Her new onscreen lover is played by Karanvir Bohra. As per the feedback we’ve been getting, people have finally started accepting the new actor opposite Surbhi. Besides looking great together onscreen, Karanvir and Surbhi share a rocking chemistry and a friendly rapport.

While we don’t know what the actor’s birthday plans are for tonight, celebrations have already begun last night. The entire cast and crew of Qubool Hai brought in Surbhi’s birthday with a special cake.

BollywoodLife wishes Surbhi aka Sanam a very happy birthday.
