Mistry: Leanne is 'the one' for Kal
Jimi Mistry thinks Leanne Tilsley is 'the one' for Corrie's Kal Nazir
Coronation Street's Jimi Mistry has revealed Leanne Tilsley is "the one" for Kal Nazir.
Widower Kal and Leanne (Jane Danson) - who recently split from husband Nick - are fighting their feelings for one another.
But Jimi revealed to Soaplife that if the personal trainer can't have Leanne he'll stay single.
He said: "Kal may be a charmer, but he's not a player. Leanne's the only woman he's genuinely interested in. If it doesn't work out, he'll just carry on with his life rather than go after another woman."
And he added that Leanne is the first woman Kal has been attracted to since his wife died.
Jimi said: "It's been a very difficult few years for Kal, but he is genuinely attracted to Leanne - and not in a casual way. He'd like a proper, serious relationship with her."
But the actor revealed Kal feels awkward about doing anything about his feelings for Leanne because he feels close to her ex Nick. The couple had a difficult split as Nick's personality has changed after suffering a serious brain injury.
Jimi said: "The situation with Nick is so delicate. Kal has become close to Nick and has played a big part in his rehabilitation. Nick's also confided in Kal about his feelings for Leanne. As for Leanne... well, she still cares about Nick, but not in that way.
"Neither Kal nor Leanne wants to hurt Nick and when Leanne told Kal they couldn't start a relationship because of Nick, he knew he had to accept that. Kal's not happy about it, though.
"Nick is still madly in love with Leanne and Kal knows Nick pines after her."
But the actor also hinted: "The chemistry between Kal and Leanne is so strong, I don't know how long it will remain under wraps. Even if nothing is going on between them, their attraction is obvious."
