Harleen Sethi Early Life And Family
Harleen hasn’t revealed her Parent’s Name to the public or media, so not much is known about them. She, however, has a sibling, Karan Sethi. Sethi did her schooling at Janaki devi Public School, Mumbai. For her higher studies, Harleen chose three colleges in chronological order, RD National and WA Science College, Mumbai, Mithibai College, Mumbai and Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai. She’s a postgraduate in Business Administration. Overall, Harleen believes in the almighty and is a very spiritual person.
About her childhood, she shared, “I was a very wild- child. Despite my upbringing in Mumbai, my parents were, maybe still are, very conventional. I had a lot of restrictions on me, and my brother would always try fueling the fire. It’s just been a year or two since we started being friends. The kind of personality I had and the kind of family I belonged to were poles apart; needless to say, I’d have to cover up many things that I did. Even having a boyfriend was a big taboo.”
“Over the last few years, my family has grown with me and started understanding how the generations to come are evolving and how they’d like to deal. So yeah, growing up has been pretty much haywire since you’re hiding stuff from your parents, you don’t get the proper guidance, and all your friends are just as equally intelligent as you. But yeah, now it’s a very different story. I tell them almost everything these days. I share snippets from my teenage years of everything I did. And they take it with equal maturity.”
Apart from her brilliant career in acting, Harleen has also had a bright academic career. In an interview with PinkVilla, she shared, “Nothing really went according to plan for me. I remember I had just graduated and paid my fees for my MBA when I got a scholarship for this dance workshop. Since I was good with studies, I was assumed to go for MBA. But then I felt like a scholarship in learning Ballet is something I’d look forward to. If I’m good enough, I’ll also make it to MBA next year.”

Harleen Sethi Net worth and Cars
Harleen is believed to have a net worth of $1 Million (INR 7.9 Crores). Her sources of income aren’t just her acting skills and web series but also modelling for cloth brands and photographers, advertisements and Print shoots. Harleen charges about a lakh per episode of her performance. She recently purchased a Mercedes Benz in 2021.
Harleen’s relationship status as of now isn’t much exposed, and hence much isn’t known about who she’s currently dating. However, she was earlier dating The Uri: The Surgical Strike actor Vicky Kaushal, who she met on the sets for the same. The couple started dating post that, but unfortunately, the relationship didn’t last long, and they had to end it. Sethi made some big News when she began dating Vicky, but 2019 wasn’t probably the couple’s year.
Post the breakup, however, Harleen, in an interview, opened up about how she felt about it, “While I was shooting for Broken but Beautiful, I was kinda facing the same situation in real life. But again, that’s all an actor needs, an inspiration for the character they’re playing. So it did help me to understand and portray the character.”
On being asked how she felt about being tagged as someone’s ex, she replied, “Well, I don’t really care. It did hurt my family members, though. And I don’t think that’s how you’re supposed to address people, so for everyone out there, I am no one’s ex, present or future girlfriend. I’m Harleen Sethi. Because I guess it’d be unfair to address someone else as my ex. There were tons of articles on the internet talking about our breakup, and I’d usually ignore them, but one day my brother came up to me and told me that he didn’t like it, and my parents supported his statement. And then I just felt that this would be a feeling most of us go through, and thus came the poem with the hashtag #iammyownself.”
“I was blessed to have some amazing people who supported me and backed me up. Having these people added positivity to my life.” Two years later, Vicky married Katrina in 2021. And Harleen likes staying out of the zone where she needs to talk about it.

Harleen also became a viral sensation overnight with her dance number with choreographer Melvin.
Harleen, on her viral dance cover of the song Lamborghini, “Oh, well, I hadn’t really anticipated it, but do we anticipate anything in life? Especially for me, nothing has ever gone according to plan, so it was just a random idea. I called Melvin to convince him to collaborate on this song. Lucky for me, he agreed, and we met and created this. I had never imagined Sir Anand Mahindra sharing it, and the Amitabh Bachchan sir did it too; it was like a dream come true. I’d like to work on more dance numbers.”
For her Show Broken but beautiful, Harleen shares, “I believe it’s very relatable for people because it’s pretty much a reflection of the society in terms of urban relationships, of the complexities and the intricacies of different personalities. What happens when these different personalities come together? And what are the dynamics that are created? Veer and Sameera from the season were two characters in the show that people really connected to. Now that they have moved on in their lives, will destiny bring them back together? Will they find a happily ever after with each other is what season 2 is all about.”
Harleen Sethi’s Thoughts and Views
Harleen’s take on love, “I think people should never change their USP. Whether others accept you or give you validations isn’t something that should matter. You should be who you are, and I think that’s a beautiful thing if you love it too much. But yeah, you shouldn’t put your core into somebody else because that’s when you forget yourself, which gets messed up. So don’t forget yourself, love two much or love three much or as much as you can, don’t forget yourself.”
“True and forever love exists, but just a handful. With technology the ease of access and our busy lives, it’s just us looking for someone convenient. We’ve started looking for someone who just comes readymade, like they’d adjust to all our schedules so, the scope of investment in relationships has decreased. And there’s no easy way to mend a broken heart, my mom works in an NGO, so she says that when you start to think about others is when you start receiving joy. That’s something I believe in and I think that’s what you need to start doing to mend a broken heart, not think about yourself for a while.”
