Archana Puran Singh opens up on being more successful than husband Parmeet Sethi
Archana Puran Singh is good to go to judge India’s Laughter Champion after being a permanent guest on The Kapil Sharma Show for a very long time. The actress, who is hitched to actor Parmeet Sethi, has now talked about having a bigger career than that of her better half. She said Parmeet is very mature and made it seem as though she was more successful than him.
In an interview with ETimes, Archana said, “Parmeet and I would always laugh about how our life story would be like the film Abhimaan, where the wife’s career takes off in a bigger way than her husband’s. However, I feel that we should never get into gender stereotypes. What if the man’s career would have been on an upward swing while the woman would still be struggling? Just because a woman is defined as a homemaker, would nobody question her or say that she can’t do anything big in life? Society should not stereotype or stick to old gender roles.”
She also added that Parmeet has been a very “mature, understanding, and balanced” person. “He has always supported me and has never brought this as a point between us. Although his career had a slow start, he has done good work in many films and web shows, and is also a good writer and director. He has also established himself in his career, but remained in the background, so it seemed that I did better in my career.”
She also added that at home, “I am the joker and my husband and sons are happily laughing at my jokes!”
Archana has worked in many Bollywood movies however her character Miss Braganza from the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai remains one of the most memorable ones. Among her other movies are Raja HiLove Story 2050, Mohabbatein, Krrish, Masti, De Dana Dan and Bol Bachchan. She and Parmeet had once participated on Nach Baliye 1. She also featured in TV shows like Shrimaan Shrimati and Junoon.
