Never Have I Ever season 4 is the final season of the popular teen series, and it’s now available to stream on Netflix. In the fourth season, we meet a bunch of new characters. One of the characters introduced this season is Akshara, played by Janina Gavankar.
Akshara makes her first appearance in the fourth episode of the season. She’s a Princeton admission representative who attends the college fair at Sherman Oaks High. Devi tries to impress Akshara to better her chances of getting into the Ivy League school, but she gives a bad first impression.
