Tiya is the daughter of Arpana (Majumdar) and Sumit Sircar, who are both of Bengali Indian origin.
Tiya has said:
I’d say in some ways, I’m very Bengali. I have a love of the arts – dance, music, visual arts – which I think is a very Bengali trait. I also love food which I know is very Bengali! I like all kinds of food but if I had to choose a favourite Indian cuisine, it would absolutely be Bengali! I love things like masoor dal with begun bhaja, or any type of bhaja, really, machher jhol, bhapa chingri. And how can you beat gorom, gorom rosogolla?
