His character of Kuljeet in the cult film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge made everyone take notice of him, he dabbled in both films and television and turned director with Badmaash Company; well we are talking about the multi talented Parmeet Sethi who turns a year older today (October 14, 2014).
Post Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, followed films like Diljale (1996), Des Hoyaa Pardes and many more, but then then it was television shows like Dastaan and Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin that made Parmeet Sethi a household name. Apart for acting, Pareet has even hosted Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 2 with Mona Singh.
After working on television, Parmeet Sethi needed a break and that’s when he wrote the script of his first directorial venture, Badmaash Company. The film was produced by Yash Raj Films and starred Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Meiyang Chang. Apart from directing the film, Parmeet even wrote the script of the film.
Parmeet married Archana Puran Singh on June 30, 1992 and they have two sons Aaryamann and Ayushmaan. The couple are more friends than husband and wife. Off the two Parmeet is the romantic one and very few people know that while he was dating Archana Puran Singh, he used to buy her three roses everyday to say that he loves her.
After a gap of about seven years, Parmeet Sethi is all set to face the camera for Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do. Parmeet was last seen in the short story, Puran Mashi, in Sanjay Gupta’s Dus Kahaniyaan in the year 2007.
Parmeet was really surprised when he got a call from Zoya. But at the same time, he was thrilled too because he had loved her two earlier films, Luck By Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. He did not take long to give his nod to the project.
Here’s wishing Parmeet Sethi a great year ahead and we would be looking forward to seeing him back on screen.
