Emmerdale casts Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana as Sharma cousin ‘Suni’

Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana has joined the cast of ITV1’s Emmerdale as a new member of the Sharma family.

He plays Suni, who is heading to the village ahead of Jai and Laurel’s wedding.

Rishi (Bhasker Patel) is pleased to see his nephew, hoping his arrival will help to restore the equilibrium in his relationship with Jai (Chris Bisson).

Brahmdeo Shannon said:

“I’m delighted to join the Emmerdale family. Having watched the show with my mum and dad growing up it feels surreal. I’m so grateful to everyone here for making me feel so welcome.

“Confident, magnetic and very fashion conscious Suni looks forward to injecting some flair to the Emmerdale village. He’s not afraid to be his true self and go after what (and who) he wants.

“Bringing a wonderful character like Suni to life on a continuing drama is incredibly important to me as it gives exposure to a demographic which is sadly still under-represented so I truly hope to do him justice, and thank Emmerdale and it’s fans for the privilege.”

As Jai reels from the news he was adopted, he is angry with Rishi for keeping it a secret from him, and with Rishi holding out on the identity of Jai’s real father, there appears to be no attempt to reconcile.

However, could the arrival of Suni be just the ticket to restore harmony?

The newcomer may also prove a pleasant distraction for recently single Nicky, played by Lewis Cope.

Executive Producer Jane Hudson said:

“Suni arrives just in time for the wedding of his cousin Jai to Laurel but it’s Nicky who soon is making the most of his arrival. We are delighted to have Brahm join the Emmerdale family. He certainly hits the ground running as we throw him right into the heart of a big Sharma story.”

Brahm will be on screen in the coming weeks and viewers may recognise him from ITV’s The Bay.
