Interestingly, the actor shared that his father worked at the NSD (National School Of Drama) and was a writer in many TV projects.
“My father had quit theatre due to financial issues. We used to live in Bhayander, which means a complete cut-off from the world that I reside in now. At the age of 17, I was a college dropout working at an editing studio. So, I was nowhere related to acting background. It was when I watched one of my father’s plays that I was drawn to this world. Like something clicked!,” Sumeet shared, recalling his journey in the showbiz world.
Further, Ira questioned Amrita about her father’s reaction when she opened up to him about pursuing a career in acting. Amrita shared how her father promptly answered, “No!”. The actor went on to reveal how her father persuaded her into few other career options, however, she made a firm decision and finally confronted him. The actor was quoted saying, “I just got really fried and said, ‘I don’t think I want to do any of these things’.

Sumeet answered, “Definitely Permanent Roommates.” He also went on to share an interesting story. “The makers told me that we’ll wrap the complete shoot of Permanent Roommates in eight days however, it took us a week to shoot the first episode itself. In the beginning, I did not realize the show’s popularity however, suddenly people started noticing me and I knew I had arrived.”
Answering the same, Amrita shared that her debut film Aisha is something she loves to revisit. Also, talking about her experience, the actor shared that she was very excited about watching herself for the first time on the big screens. “People were laughing in theatres and I felt they were liking me.
