Emmerdale’s Amit star played villain on rival soap just months before Dales debut

Anil Goutam is currently starring as Emmerdale’s latest newcomer Amit Sharma, but fans may recognize the star from BBC soap EastEnders, where he recently played a major character

Actor Anil Goutam recently made his long-awaited entrance into the world of Emmerdale, debuting as Amit Sharma during scenes last week on ITV.

The stage was set for a dramatic family reunion as Amit steps foot into the village to confront his two sons, Jai and Suni. But some eagle-eyed fans may recognize Anil from another big soap.

Anil left his mark on a major rival soap when he appeared on EastEnders as Ranveer Gulati. Ranveer was initially believed to be Ravi Gulati’s father, but a startling revelation turned the tables, revealing that Nish was Ravi’s biological father.

Raised by Ranveer, Ravi endured an abusive upbringing, and Ranveer’s dark side was prominently on display. He attempted to manipulate Suki Panesar into a compromising situation, using promises of a business partnership. Suki, however, outsmarted him by recording their conversation, forcing Ranveer into signing the business papers under threat of video exposure.
