Masood may be facing heartbreak this week as his relationship with Zainab (Nina Wadia) comes off the rails, but it seems that he may not be miserable for long.
Next week, a newly single Masood helps a struggling Carol (Lindsey Coulson) when the cooking at Cindy’s café goes awry. Lucy (Hetti Bywater) is thrilled when they come up with a delicious money-making curry that could be the beginning of a lucrative partnership. But could there be deeper feelings there too?
“There may well be a hint of something there,” Nitin Ganatra, who plays Masood, reveals. “Lindsey Coulson is one of my favourite actresses. She’s very funny and quirky. It’s often the case in EastEnders that you don’t get to interact with too many different characters. But now the doors are open, Masood should flirt with all the ladies.”
Speaking to Inside Soap about his hopes for Masood, the actor added: “It’d be great to see Masood’s wild side finally come out – the party animal! It’s something that I’ve pitched to the writers, so if I talk about it enough, they might just go with it!”
