Corrie actor's son to star in stage play

Akshay Gulati, aged 20, is the son of ex-Coronation Street actor Shobna Gulati, who played Sunita Alahan.

He's been cast as sweet and simple Eddie Taylor in 'The Family Way', a Bill Naughton play set in 1960s Bolton.

Akshay is the youngest member of the cast, says the Bolton News, and is performing in his first professional role, having recently completed a foundation course in acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

He said: "I grew up in green rooms watching my mum so I never had any other career path in mind. Mum has been great at teaching me about the industry and I admit it is nice to have that inside figure guiding you, but I do want to carve my own path.

"Although of course, like most mums she is very proud."

The Family Way is running from September 4 to October 3 at The Octagon Theatre in Bolton. Buy tickets here.
