Jennifer Winget (born May 30, 1985) is an Indian actress who works largely in Hindi television and Hindi films. She began her career as a young performer in the 1995 film Akele Hum Akele Tum and made her television debut in 2002 with Shaka Laka Boom Boom. Following that, she played Sneha Bajaj in Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Dr. Riddhima Gupta in Dill Mill Gayye.

With her portrayals of Kumud Sundari Desai in Saraswatichandra, Maya Mehrotra in Beyhadh, and Zoya Siddiqui in Bepannah, Winget established herself as one of India's leading actresses. Her web debut was with ALT Balaji's Code M.

Winget was born on May 30, 1985, in Bombay (modern-day Mumbai), India. She is the daughter of a Punjabi mother and a Maharashtrian Christian father, and her western first name frequently leads to her being confused for someone of non-Indian heritage.

Winget began her career at the age of 15 in the 2000 film Raja Ko Rani Se Pyar Ho Gaya, and at the age of 18 she starred as a supporting actor in the Indian film Kuch Naa Kaho. She later appeared in other Indian television shows. Winget's major break as a television lead came with the sitcom Karthika, in which she played a poor singer with enormous hopes.

She later appeared in Kasautii Zindagii Kay as Sneha, the characters' daughter. She took over for Sukirti Kandpal as Riddhima Gupta in the show Dill Mill Gayye in 2009. In 2013, she played Kumud Desai alongside Gautam Rode in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's television serial Saraswatichandra. She received the Indian Television Academy Award for Best Actress Critics for her performance. Winget portrayed Maya Mehrotra in Sony TV's Beyhadh in 2016. She received various honors and accolades for her performance. In 2018, she portrayed Zoya Siddiqui in Colors TV's Bepannaah, with Harshad Chopda. In the early 2020s, she played Maya Jaisingh in Sony TV's Beyhadh 2, alongside Ashish Chaudhary and Shivin Narang. The event, however, came to a premature halt owing to coronavirus lockdown. Winget is one of India's highest-paid television actresses.
