ZEEDAN Nazir is revealed to be at the centre of a sickening scheme to scam his grandmother Yasmeen next week in Coronation Street.

Zeedan – who is played by actor Qasim Akhtar in the ITV soap – made a shock return to the cobbles last month following a three-year absence.


But Zeedan’s offer of a loan to save Speed Daal upon his return left Alya suspicious of her brother’s sudden wealth.

The plot thickened when Zeedan was beaten by two mystery thugs on the street as he made his way towards Speed Daal for a family meal.

Next week, viewers will discover what Zeedan is up to as his ex father-in-law Hashim – who previously threatened to kill Zeedan for cheating on his daughter – talks him through their dodgy money laundering scheme.

Later in the week, Zeedan tries to persuade Yasmeen to let him take over the financial side of the business, but she’s having none of it.

Will Yasmeen rumble Zeedan and Hashim’s plan?

Speaking about whether Alya has reason to be suspicious of Zeedan’s offer to save Speed Daal, actor Qasim Akhtar – who plays him – recently revealed: “Yes definitely, he is being very cagey, he doesn't tell her where the money has come from and she knows her brother well, so she is right not to trust him and what he is saying. 

“He is being the big I am, but she is the older sister and she knows him of old and what type of guy he has been.”

Viewers know that Zeedan initially framed Ryan for the attack, but later admitted he had made it up.

Talking about why Zeedan framed Ryan, Qasim added: “He is just scared that his grandma and sister are going to find out that he has perhaps not been truthful about the money and how he came about it. 

“He is just trying to buy himself some more time, he wants all the attention taken away from the real reason he has been attacked. 

“He just sees an opportunity with Ryan, because he has had an argument with him literally just before the attack, it is the perfect way to deflect the truth.”
