Has Zeedan Nazir changed?
Following the loss of his father, Kal Nazir (Jimi Mistry), in 2015, viewers already saw a change in Zeedan before he left.
The character has since got married but when he returns to the cobbles, the troubled soul has adopted a much darker tone.
Qasim said: “I discussed it with Iain [MacLeod] our producer and they have definitely got the character as a more mature, more savvy and on the ball type of guy.”
The actor described his alter-ego’s transition as growing from “a boy into a man” and as such, he has to take on more adult drama.
Next week, Zeedan will be attacked after getting his hands on a huge sum of money and it seems he is going to bring more drama to the Nazirs’ door.
