'Corrie' favourite Sunita to return to Weatherfield

Wednesday May 13, 2009

Actress Shobna Gulati is to reprise her popular Corrie role as Sunita Alahan after three years away from the Street.

The Lancashire-born star will return to the show later this year, according to a report in a British newspaper. She's expected to make trouble for her cheating ex-husband Dev, played by Jimmi Harkishin.

Fans saw Shobna's character flee Weatherfield in 2006 after finding out that Dev had had several children with different women.

"Talks have been going on for some time to finalise a deal acceptable to all those who are involved," a Coronation Street source tells the Daily Mirror. "Sunita was a great character, so to have her back is exciting."
