Some Lesser Known Facts About Parmeet Sethi
- He was born in a Punjabi family and is the cousin of the Indian TV actress, Niki Aneja Walia.
- Parmeet saw Archana for the first time at a friend’s party. He was attracted towards her in their first meeting, and soon they became friends. At that time, Archana was in a post failed marriage phase, and she was not ready to start a new relationship. Later, she also fell in love with him and the couple moved in a live-in relationship. After four years of their live-in relationship, the couple eloped and got married on 30 June 1992.

For me, it was an attraction at first sight. Archana bowled me over with her beauty and grace. It was Archana’s truthful nature and complete transparency of thought that attracted me.”
- While talking about his marriage in an interview, he said,
Every relation begins with friendship, and friendship starts with trust. The moment one partner jeopardises this element of trust and honesty, a rift is created. We were in a live-in relation for four years, and later when we married we did not announce our marriage for another four years because it didn’t really matter to us. Marriage is a label given to a relation. It is in fact love, which shows that henceforth, two people exclusively belong to each other. We both stood by each other when we decided to live-in. Maybe we wouldn’t have married, but to give our children an identity, we thought of tying the knot. However, we still remain the best of friends even today.”

I signed some bad films and they sank without a trace. I didn’t want to anything less than the best and nothing came my way.” Today things are different. “I don’t want to be unhappy by thinking of what could have happened had I done this or not done that. And I don’t have delusions of grandeur either. I am out to do my best and continue to learn and unlearn throughout.”
