Mena Parekh, the mother of Sunita, first arrived on Coronation Street with husband Suresh looking for their daughter when she had fled to Weatherfield to avoid the prospect of an arranged marriage with Deepak in India. After Sunita refused to return, her parents told her she was no longer a member of the family.

However, Mena forgave Sunita following an underhanded visit for a blessing from fiancé Dev Alahan, and her parents attended their wedding in October 2004.

Mena was distraught when she found out through Maya Sharma that Sunita had previously been engaged to Ciaran McCarthy, but supported her daughter when she was up in court on bigamy charges and got behind an idea to free Sunita when she was imprisoned.

Mother and daughter were finally reunited in November 2004.
