The Anglo-Indian star portrayed the best friend of Margulies' titular character on the show before leaving at the end of the last season.

Following her departure, it emerged that Julianna and Archie had shot their final joint scene separately, prompting rumours of a rift between them.

Attempting to clear up that gossip when asked about her relationship with Panjabi at the New Yorker Festival in the Big Apple over the weekend (03-04Oct15), Margulies told reporters and fans, "It was shot the way (creator) Robert (King) wanted to shoot it. You also have to remember, there's difficulty... (Archie) was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do and I did it happily."

But Panjabi has responded to Margulies' comments, insisting she was available to shoot her final scene.

She tweets, "@TheFallTV was not even in production at that time and I was in New York ready to film the scene!"
