EastEnders spoilers – Jaz Deol talks changes for Kheerat’s story

EastEnders spoilers follow.

Jaz Deol is addressing the changes to his character Kheerat Panesar’s story in EastEnders over the last few months.

Kheerat was deeply entrenched in the domestic abuse storyline between the Atkinses for much of last year, but recent months have seen him find new romantic interest from Sharon Watts.

The entire Panesar family have also been dealing with grief over Jags’ murder in prison without knowing it was Kheerat’s business partner Ben Mitchell who called off protection for Jags behind bars.

“There’s definitely been a shift in both myself, the audience and writing team becoming ever more curious about who this man is,” he said.

“We’re starting to see his complicated and conflicted nature. He’s a man with a huge capacity to love his family and significant other but also a well of darkness that he can reveal at a drop of a hat.”

Teasing potential fallout with Ben should the truth be revealed, Deol said: “As far he’s concerned, Ben did everything he could to protect his brother. So yes I think he does trust him. Whether that extends to the other members of Mitchell tribe is another question!”

Ben has already tried distancing himself from Kheerat by admitting he doesn’t want his business partnering involved in the Arches anymore.

“Kheerat knows the value of having a business stake in The Arches,” the actor said. “It works on a personal and business level. When those two things align, you can bet he won’t back down easily. He’ll always make an offer that no one can refuse.”

Kheerat continues to deal with friction at home with mum Suki as well, seeing as she’s never been satisfied with his business arrangements.

“I think Kheerat is always someone who searches for the opportunity in everything and a way out of his suffering. He’s being doing that since his dad went away to prison,” Deol said. “The Arches is more than that because it has sentimental value. It’s linked to both his father and brother.

“You could argue that it’s his way moving through the grief despite his mother’s reservations. He can see the bigger picture.”

EastEnders continues on Friday on BBC One at 8pm.
