Parminder "Pam" Kaur Dhillon is played by Tanya Abrol . She is Dolly's best friend and is one of the major recurring characters in the series. She is seen spending most of her time with Dolly at the Singh's residence and often joins her on her errands. Pam is energetic and witty and has proven to be quite intuitive, although she does not receive the best grades in school. She is passionate, if not obsessed, about clothes, money, popularity, boys, and texting, but on numerous occasions has proven to be a loyal and comforting friend. She briefly dated Popi when they were younger, and now never misses a chance to insult him, but she went to the school dance with him so she and Dolly could have a ride in "Dance Off ." She loves country music and animal-print clothes. At one point, it is implied that Pam has (or had) an addiction to chocolate. In Good Luck Charlie , Pam's equivalent is Ivy Wentz , who is played by Raven Goodwin .
