Amar Adatia will be leaving the role of Jags Panesar in ‘EastEnders’ after his contract came to an end.
The 34-year-old star, who made his entry along with the Panesar family last Autumn, will be bidding adieu on-screen in October. Adatia admits that he was aware his contract on the show was limited but was extended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Talking about his exit, Panesar told The Sun, “I always knew I’d only be in the show for a set period of time when I signed up,” he said. “I had just finished shooting a film and had prior commitments to promote that but then the pandemic hit and everything understandably got put on hold.
“With timings all pushed back, I was more than happy stay a little bit longer to make sure that we wrapped up Jags’s storyline properly.
“I was really lucky to have those extra months of filming and to spend time with everyone on set before I said goodbye.
“I can’t share too much about what happens but it serves to further prove just how far Suki will go to get her way!
“Jags went against her and being the strong woman she is, just like their father in the past, anyone that goes against her doesn’t tend to fare so well.”
