Following his departure from Emmerdale, actor Bhasker Patel has shared additional information about his upcoming role.
In the ITV soap opera, Bhasker portrayed Rishi Sharma, who passed away unexpectedly after falling down some stairs.
The shocking demise occurred on the wedding day of Jai (Chris Bisson) and Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy). Despite recent issues with his son, Rishi had planned to attend the celebration. However, he never showed up, and Jai subsequently discovered him dead at the foot of the steps.
After 12 years on the show, Bhasker’s poignant last moments were broadcast. Bhasker is already revealing additional details about his future position as he bids farewell to life in the Dales.
According to the show’s website, the actor will play the lead role in Leviathan, a new project that “envisages a future very much like our present to consider possible links between borders, mental health, and marine welfare.” The perspective of a different character and their journey is used in each episode.
Bhasker posted a photo on Instagram in which he is joined by cast and crew members.
In contrast to Rishi in Emmerdale, he is shown with a lengthy grey beard and cardigan for the role he is playing.
After his character left the scene, Bhasker said, “Thanks for watching Rishi over the years.”
“I consider it an honour to have participated in the show for 12 years.” I have enjoyed it greatly and shall greatly miss it, especially my friends and my job in the lovely village of Emmerdale. I appreciate your attention. Be careful, Bhasker.
