Hollyoaks bosses are bolstering the ranks of the show’s hunk with the arrival of Yasmine and Farrah Maalik’s half-brother.
Rishi Nair will be joining the cast as Sami Maalik, who is also the step-son to Misbah Maalik.
As well as being easy on the eye, Sami is described as a suave, strident and charming man who is the eldest of the Maalik clan who arrives in the village to be reunited with his family and get a job at James Nightingale’s law firm, but his job hunt is all part of an ulterior motive…
Speaking about his new role, Rishi said, “I am really excited to be joining Hollyoaks and everyone has been so welcoming and lovely since the moment I have arrived.
“I can’t wait for everyone to see Sami on screen and see him reunite with the Maalik family.”
