With all the hoopla around Parminder Nagra, have you wondered whatever happened to Pinky, her slutty sister in Bend It Like Beckham. Thatís Archie Panjabi for you, thank you very much. Nevertheless, on a lark I decided to Googled her and see what came up. A lot actually.
For instance, Guardian Unlimited tells me that…
Her real name is Archana; she chose the short version to avoid confusion… and ran straight into confusion, when casting directors assumed she was a man. She has played Om Puri’s daughter in East is East, and then his wife in the BBC’s White Teeth. Mixing plentiful TV work with a growing film career, she recently played the older sister in Bend It Like Beckham.
But wait, donít feel sorry for her because ever since she kicked it with Beckham, she has been busy as hell with work. For instance, this year alone she has starred in BBC Series Sea Of Souls, White Teeth and of course Grease Monkeys.
