Talented actor Archana Puran Singh will share screen space with her real-life husband Parmeet Sethi in SAB TV’s newest offering, My Name Ijj Lakhan produced by Paritosh Painter.
The best part about the show is that Parmeet and Archana is that they will play a couple in the show.
Talking about the show, Archana states, “My Name Ijj Lakhan is about the fight between the good and the bad depicted through the story of a son and his father where the son is ‘bad’ and the father is ‘good’. And then there is a the ‘grey area’ which is me, the mother, who sees the point of view of both the son as well as the father. The series demonstrates whether it’s the good that wins at the end, or the bad.”
On her character, Archana says, “My character in the show is called Pammi, mother of Lakhan, who is born and brought up in Punjab. Although settled in Mumbai with her husband, since many years, they have retained all their cultural and ethical values. My husband is a teacher in the show and I share a very wonderful relationship with him but when it comes to our son, clash arises. In the show, I adore my son a lot and I am quite biased towards him. He has become a goon with a lot of love and rose tinted glasses, even though he is a goon. On the other hand, my husband sees him from the point of view that my son has gone wrong and I must set him right. My character tries to be the balance between the son and the father as she loves them both of them.”
Archana expresses her thoughts on working with her husband Parmeet. “Honestly speaking, sometimes it’s a little scary to play a couple in reel life. However, Parmeet and I do so much of our other creative work together, like writing, and make for a very good team off-screen. I’m sure it’s going to translate the same way on screen. We are, both, looking at the workspace as two professionals where just because he is my husband doesn’t mean that I will take him for granted in a scene and vice versa. When we are on the set, it is all very professional; but once the “Cut” is announced, we go back to being husband and wife like having food and chai together in our vanity van, which is like a little house for us. So overall, it’s a very nice mixture of having that comfort of our personal relationship. It is also very exciting as we are exploring a new area, together.”
Way to go, Archana!!
