Nish Panesar star's new TV role alongside another former EastEnders villain

Navin Chowdhry has been captivating audiences with his chilling performance in EastEnders and now the Nish Panesar actor is set to star opposite a former Walford villain.

The actor, who made his EastEnders debut as Nish last year, will star in The Effects of Lying, which has been acquired by ITVX and will stream in July.

The film, the first production from independent company Bonaparte Films, boasts an impressive cast, with former EastEnders actor Ace Bhatti, who played Yusef Khan on the soap, starring in the leading role opposite Holby City’s Laila Rouass.

Described as ‘delightfully chaotic’, The Effects Of Lying tells the story of husband and father Naveen (Ace Bhatti), whose life falls apart after a series of shock events take place over the course of just one day.

Naveen’s world comes crashing down when he finds his brother (played by Navin Chowdhry) in bed with his wife Sangeeta (Laila Rouass), with lies pouring out and shocking truths uncovered.

‘Naveen is a man who tries to do right by his family,’ said actor Ace Bhatti. ‘He’s trying so hard to keep his fractious family together, but within 24 hours he learns three very deep, very dark secrets that break his life apart.

‘By lunchtime, his whole life is shattered…and he has to learn very quickly how to deal with that on an emotional level.’

The Effects Of Lying launches on ITVX on July 6, during South Asian Heritage Month.

Navin, meanwhile, can be seen on our screens in EastEnders, playing the villainous Nish Panesar, who recently was left upset when he discovered that he wasn’t going to become the new landlord of The Vic.

The criminal had his heart set on acquiring the boozer, but Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) decided to go in another direction, bringing her mum Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe) in as the new joint owner.

The Effects Of Lying streams from July 6 on ITVX. EastEnders, meanwhile, airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
