Emmerdale's Fiona Wade on wedding drama: 'Priya doesn't love Rakesh'

By , Soaps Editor
It's make or break time for Priya Sharma's arranged marriage plan on Emmerdale next week as her big day finally arrives.

Priya is left in turmoil on the morning of the wedding as she knows that she doesn't truly love her fiancé Rakesh Kotecha (Pasha Bocarie), but is honesty the best policy when she tells him exactly how she feels?

Here, Fiona Wade - who plays Priya - chats about the wedding episodes and whether the on screen romance has any future.

How is Priya feeling about the arranged marriage now that it's approaching?
"Priya is definitely getting scared now. I think the reality of the situation is hitting her more. Beforehand Priya was concentrating on the family unit and the vision of what that could be like. Rakesh also fitted into the criteria of what she liked, but now Priya is definitely realising that actually she doesn't know him.

"Priya also knows that she really loved David when they were together. Those feelings she had for David were so real, while for Rakesh it's the opposite way around - she is marrying him, having the family and then hoping she'll fall in love with him afterwards."

Is Priya attracted to Rakesh even though she doesn't actually love him yet?
"Yes, I think Priya wouldn't have agreed to it if she didn't fancy Rakesh, but it's all about connection and chemistry. The thing is, they haven't even kissed or gone there yet, so it's all about whether that side of things is going to work and that's what is really hitting Priya. She can see that Rakesh is a lovely guy who looks after her, but is the rest there? Is the passion there and all of the other ingredients?"

In the lead-up to the wedding, Rakesh tells Priya that he loves her. How does she react?
"This is a very sweet moment, because Rakesh comes round to tell her just as she's been having cold feet. She's been really worrying about this and all of a sudden, she has a chat with Kirin and it makes her feel better about everything.

"When Rakesh suddenly says that he loves Priya, it really throws her because she then panics, knowing that she doesn't love him back yet. It really is an awkward moment and I don't think Rakesh realises it there and then, but Priya is very shocked."

Does the comparison to how she felt about David also make things difficult?
"Yes, that's very much in Priya's head. What she cannot deal with is that when she was leading up to the wedding with David, the excitement was there. Even though Priya now accepts that wasn't right and there were a lot of flaws in that relationship, the feelings were true.

"With Priya and Rakesh, she has suddenly realised that she doesn't know any of his family who are coming to the wedding. There are also little things that he's taking control of without asking her, and it's throwing her. Everything Rakesh is doing is now starting to irritate Priya and she's starting to wonder whether she actually knows him at all."

Is Priya also missing David?
"I think Priya will always love David for what he was to her and the fact that he is Amba's father, but she has definitely moved on from that. What really resonates is the feeling she had for David. She doesn't want David anymore and she understands that situation, but she wants that back in terms of how she felt for him."

How does Priya's anorexia come back into play on the day of her wedding?
"Like any illness, it doesn't just go away and stress will flare these things up. Priya tends to bottle things up because she doesn't really have anyone to talk to. She confides in Leyla but she has her own thing going on and her mum is busy too.

"Priya is also embarrassed because she has convinced everyone she knows that she's not mad for wanting an arranged marriage. Now she's getting cold feet, and she's worried because her anorexia is starting to rear its head a little bit. That shows on her wedding day because she isn't able to eat her breakfast and she hides it away. She knows it's suddenly coming back up."

Has Priya been fighting with it before this?
"I think every day is a constant battle, but obviously we can't show that on screen every single day. When playing this character I always have to be mindful of that. She'll always be aware of what she eats, but I think she has got better because of her treatment. When Priya is happy, she can just about get through days, but when she's unhappy like she is at the moment at times, it's quite difficult."

Leyla spots that Priya is struggling with her food issues again, so does she help?
"Leyla does help by going to get Rakesh and he comes and sorts things out by talking to Priya. It's a bit late for Leyla to be having girly chats with Priya because it's the wedding day by this point!"

How does Rakesh deal with the situation?
"Rakesh is really lovely, actually. Priya has locked herself in the bathroom, so he knocks on the door, comes in and Priya pretends that everything is fine. Rakesh asks her to tell him what's wrong, so she basically breaks down and just says that she doesn't love him yet.

"Priya thought that they would grow to love each other at the same time after they'd got married, but because Rakesh has told her that he loves her now, he's put this added pressure on her. What if she never feels the same way? So this poor girl is just completely numb at the moment. She is running scared and confused."

Rakesh then suggests that they should call off the wedding. How does Priya react?
"These scenes were quite interesting to play, as Priya has a big long journey to go on in them. At first she really doesn't want to go ahead with the wedding, but then she starts to think that Rakesh is a really good man. She also worries about how it's going to look, because everyone is waiting at the wedding. It gets to the point where Priya tells Rakesh that it's going to be fine and they should do it."

As Fiona, do you think Priya should marry Rakesh?
"It's very difficult for me to say, because I know there are still things about Rakesh that have not unfolded. We still don't know what they are or if they're ever going to come to light, but there is a history with Jai.

"There are some skeletons in Rakesh's closet, but the one thing I would say Priya can be sure of is that Rakesh does genuinely love her and he wants to make it work. I don't know whether it's a bit of a grey area with everything else going on with him. I think he would always take care of her, but I don't know!"

Would Priya and Rakesh's relationship survive even if the wedding didn't go ahead?
"Rakesh is here to stay and there's lots of twists and turns to their relationship, so you'll have to wait and see. Maybe they'll find a way to be together without the pressure of their marriage!"

Rakesh and Priya's big day - but will the ceremony go ahead?


Was the wedding day exciting to film?
"I was so excited. It was actually like a real wedding day and everyone was very excited to finally get this dress on that they'd been making for weeks! I'd had fittings for weeks, so it fitted really well. Priya also wears lovely sparkly princess shoes. They were very high so my feet were killing by the end of the day! The set was also stunning - so beautiful."

Was it also nerve-wracking?
"Yes, because I knew that everyone was waiting to see what I looked like in my wedding dress, but everyone was very complimentary. It was lovely and all day I did feel very special!"
