Actor, Archana Puran Singh‘s husband, Parmeet has dabbled in Hindi TV previously with sitcoms like, ‘Jassi Jaisi Koi Nai’ , ‘Sujata’ and ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ among others. He was also a contestant in ‘Nach Baliye’ and hosted the dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Ja’.
Now, Parmeet is doing the Punjabi TV show, ‘Akhian Udeekdian’ based on the story of a couple that has a huge age gap between them. Commenting on his Punjabi debut, Parmeet said, “I am very new to the clan (referring to Punjabi TV), however, the script looks quite promising and I am looking forward to the public response of me being in a Punjabi TV show.”
Interestingly, Parmeet is the third actor from mainstream Hindi TV industry to foray into Punjabi TV. Preceding Parmeet have been Angad Hasija and Karan Mehra, (from the previous popular Hindi TV show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’), who also acted in two Punjabi shows, ‘Tera Rang Chadea’ and ‘Maavan Thandiyan Chaavan’, respectively.
Like Angad and Karan, Parmeet too is a Punjabi. While Angad hails from Chandigarh, Karan has his roots in Jalandhar, though his parents are settled in Delhi.
