Oh! The Irony…

Real-life husband and wife Archana Puran Singh and Parmeet Sethi will play reel life couple in “My Name Ijj Lakhan“.

“My Name Ijj Lakhan” stars actor Shreyas Talpade as Lakhan. Archana and Parmeet will be seen as his on-screen parents, Pammi and Dashrath respectively.

“It definitely feels good to share screen space with Parmeet and that too for a show like ‘My Name Ijj Lakhan’, which is based on the concept of good versus evil. I believe that there is a fine line between tragedy and comedy and I am doing this show as it has a drama that doesn’t result into tragedy but comedy,” Archana said in a statement.

It is a story of a young man trying to reform his ways.

“I am looking forward to play a completely positive role. The character that I am playing is very straight and sees everything in either black or white. I hope that viewers will appreciate me in this new avatar and love my pairing with Archana,” said Parmeet, who played the “villain” in the love of story of Raj (actor Shah Rukh Khan) and Simran (actress Kajol) in the 1995 blockbuster “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”.

The show is expected to premiere next year on Sony SAB.
