EastEnders' Nish Panesar to use Kat Slater in Devious Romance - f

"This is what this man is capable of."

Upcoming episodes of EastEnders will see the villainous Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) attack Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).

Recent instalments of the BBC’s hit soap opera witnessed the formation of an unlikely pair when Nish got together with Kat.

This was after Kat split with her husband Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

But with all of Kat’s money tied into Phil’s businesses, the vivacious taxi firm owner was left with nowhere to go.

An opportunistic Nish Panesar swooped in to offer her and her sons a place to stay.

Despite warnings about Nish from Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) and Eve Unwin (Heather Peace), Kat accepted his offer and even entered into a romance with him.

Detailing the disturbing scenes, Navin said:

“Nish is very pleased with the way this relationship is developing for him.

“It is going according to plan until later on in the week when the goal post shifts.

“He is very close to it being a triumph for him, and then right at the last minute, things change for him as suddenly he’s faced with another formidable opponent.

“I think initially there was a genuine attraction of two people in similar situations.

“There was a common ground over which they bonded genuinely.

“But Nish being the manipulative opportunist that he is, saw a wonderful prize at the end of it [Phil’s money and businesses].

“I think initially there was an affection that then transformed into an opportunity for him.”

Nish Panesar is no stranger when it comes to violence.

The backstory of his character explained that he had served 20 years in prison for killing a man whom he thought was having an affair with his ex-wife Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal).

In October 2023, Nish assaulted Suki after she insisted that their son Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Singh Deol) did not kill Ranveer Gulati (Anil Goutam).

Navin also discussed how his real-life experiences helped him prepare for the intermittent scenes. He shared:

“My mum ran a charity for over twenty years for women of domestic abuse.

“So my mum spent her life protecting people like Kat from people like Nish.”

“These are stories and human beings that I guess I grew up with with my mum having to be on call and saving people like this.

“We had a scene a few weeks ago where Nish kicks Kat and her children out of her house.

“He thinks better of it, but this is what this man is capable of.”

Viewers have also seen Nish scheme to use Kat via their relationship.

Since his arrival in EastEnders in September 2022, Nish Panesar has established himself as one of the show’s most hateful and sadistic villains.
