DDur­ing her five years in Al­bert Square, Gita KaKapoor seemed to face one do­mes­tic cri­sis afafter an­other. A heav­ily preg­nant Gita first arar­rived in Wal­ford, in 1993, to join her feck­less huhus­band San­jay. True to form, her other half, a gagam­bling ad­dict, was nowhere to be seen wwhen she went into labour with their daugh­ter anand just months later it was re­vealed he was ha­hav­ing an af­fair with his wife’s sis­ter. But the cou­ple’s great­est re­la­tion­ship stum­bling block came about when Gita was un­faith­ful and, as a re­sult, later gave birth to a baby boy, forc­ing the trou­bled pair to leave the Square in shame when their mar­riage woes were re­vealed in the lo­cal press. Ac­tress Shobu Kapoor is cur­rently play­ing an­other strong mother fig­ure as Mrs Khan in the BBC com­edy Cit­i­zen Khan.
