Kalidas: 'Amira truly loves Syed'

By
EastEnders newcomer Preeya Kalidas has insisted that her character Amira Shah truly loves her screen boyfriend Syed Masood (Marc Elliott).

Last week, the Masoods met Amira for the first time when Zainab (Nina Wadia) interfered in her son's life and arranged for her to attend a family meal.

However, the dinner ended on a sour note when Masood (Nitin Ganatra) threw Amira out after she reacted badly to the news that Syed had no money.

However, Amira returns to the Square and Syed in a few weeks' time. Speaking to DS at the British Soap Awards, Kalidas teased: "Her world collapses around her, so she ends up coming back to Syed, the man she truly loves."

She continued: "Amira does move in with [Janine] and we have some really great exchanges actually. Some very strong women together in one household."

When asked whether Syed's relationship with Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) will be revisited, Elliott added: "I don't know whether they will or won't...there's been a bit more stuff with her, but that's all I'm willing to say!"
