WHY DID YOU KILL ME OFF? Shobna: I wish I could come back

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DRAMA: Shobna’s char­ac­ter had af­fair with Karl Munro on EX-SOAP ac­tress Shobna Gu­lati is still FU­RI­OUS that bosses killed off her char­ac­ter and that she wasn’t ready to die.

Shobna, 51, played Su­nita Ala­han on the ITV drama un­til pro­duc­ers slammed the door firmly shut on any hopes of a re­turn when they killed her off in 2013.

Fans of the hit soap will re­mem­ber Su­nita dy­ing in an almighty blaze at The Rovers Re­turn as she failed to re­cover from her in­juries.

She was in the mid­dle of a dra­matic sto­ry­line which saw her hav­ing an il­licit af­fair with pub land­lord Karl Munro, played by John Michie.

But Shobna said she wasn’t ready to quit the cob­bles and is still an­gry about her death.

She said: “I didn’t plan on dy­ing – it’s a shame that door’s shut, be­cause there could have been a time when I’d have gone back.”

The ac­tress played Su­nita from 2001 to 2006 and then again from 2009 to 2013 be­fore her per­ma­nent exit.

De­spite her Street death, Shobna is back on screens this week in Scot­tish drama River City where she plays Farah Khu­rana.

Shobna is con­tracted to three months on the show but she said she’s open for a longer stint and said: “I don’t make plans.”
