‘Fiery end’ for Corrie’s Sunita in Rovers blaze
Date published: 30 January 2013
Shaw actress Shobna Gulati looks set to make a dramatic exit from Coronation Street.
Shobna, who plays Sunita Alahan, will die in a fire that destroys the Rovers Return, say reports.
The pub, a fixture in the show since its launch, is reduced to a shell in the spring storyline.
A spokeswoman refused to comment on reports about the fire, which will be in advance of a new Corrie set being built in Salford.
But a source said: “It’s going to be a very dramatic spring on Corrie. The Rovers Return will be reduced to a shell.”
Gulati (46) recently announced she was quitting the Street to focus on writing comedy.
The former Hulme Grammar School pupil shot to fame in Victoria Wood’s sitcom “dinnerladies”. She joined Corrie as shop assistant Sunita in 2001.
