Archana and actor-writer Parmeet have been married for 30 years. The couple have two sons, Aryamann and Ayushmaan, who too watch standup comedy and are well versed with the concept.
Talking about how her kids and husband react to jokes, Archana told ETimes in an interview, “They are young modern kids, who watch Hollywood films and standup which has roasting and there’s no limit. They have seen their mother being a victim of insult comedy and being roasted since they were five-six years old. Comedy Circus ke time se…. They think it is very normal and Parmeet on the other hand says they crack so many jokes on me but they don’t pay royalty to me. I deserve royalty on every punch that I clean vessels at home and do all your work."
Archana added that her mother also enjoys Kapil Sharma's jokes on her and even teases her after watching The Kapil Sharma Show. “She teases me. She says, ‘Aaj Kapil tujhe bol raha tha mooche ugg aayi hain, after 12:30 tere mooche ugg jaati hain,' she enjoys and laughs also. Then sometimes she says, ‘Aaj toh Kapil bol raha tha Tere dole (biceps) is like Sunny Deol’.”
Archana is often the subject of Kapil Sharma's jokes on his show. The Kapil Sharma Show recently came to an end and was replaced by India’s Laughter Champion, on which Archana is a judge, along with Shekhar Suman. Kapil is currently working on a film with Nandita Das.
Before replacing Navjot Singh Sidhu on The Kapil Sharma Show, Archana featured in several films like Mohabbatein, Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! and De Dana Dan. She has usually played comic roles in her long film career.
