Nysa was born on April 20th, 2003, in Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai, four years after her parents got married. She has a younger brother, Yug Devgan, who was born seven years later on September 14th, 2010.

Since then, she has only appeared in a select number of movies, because she wanted to be there for her daughter. “My only reason why I am not doing films is my children,” Kajol had said in 2014. “They need my attention, and it’s my duty to give them my time.”
