EastEnders: Masood decides to leave Walford – see the first-look pics

After receiving surprise news about Zainab, Masood makes a big decision about his future


Masood’s time in Walford will soon draw to a close when – in an upcoming EastEnders – he decides to say goodbye.


Masood – who has been a staple part of life in Albert Square since 2007 – looks set to leave after hearing some shock news about ex-wife Zainab.

In light of the surprise development, Masood makes the decision to depart. But how will friends such as Jane and Denise react? And what will this mean for Masood’s burgeoning relationship with Belinda?


Speaking recently to RadioTimes.com about leaving EastEnders, actor Nitin Ganatra said: “When I trained as an actor, I set out to play many different characters and never did I know that I would be so fortunate to have found a character that I have loved playing for nine years.

“However, after thinking long and hard, I have decided that it is time to get back out there and take on some other roles. I will of course miss everyone at EastEnders – I have had a brilliant time there, and who knows, one day Masood may be back.”
