EastEnders' Ravi will be 'changed' by Chelsea as new romance heats up

Ravi Gulati will be "changed" by Chelsea Fox on EastEnders, as their romance heats up.

Actor Aaron Thiara, who plays the Walford bad boy on the BBC One soap, has revealed things will change for Ravi as he gets closer to Chelsea (Zaraah Abrahams) and starts to open up to her about his family life.

Ravi has his own motive and plans but things soon take a turn when he ends up getting closer to Chelsea. As she asks him about trust and says he needs to be more open with her, he is taken aback by her request but soon finds him following in her wish.

Aaron said: "Ravi is very attracted to Chelsea but he is still driven by his motive and his plans. He turns Chelsea’s questioning back on her when she starts to doubt him by saying that she needs to trust him if they’re going to go official.

"He’s using what he knows she probably wants deep down against her. There is a big turning point when Chelsea insists that she wants to know the real Ravi. It really throws him that she wants to know the deeper Ravi, and not just the surface level Ravi."

Ravi manages to open up to Chelsea about his son, and the pair soon start to "bond and connect".

He added: "He’s never had that from a woman before. Because of this, Ravi feels comfortable to open up a little bit more and talk about his son and where he’s gone wrong in the past and how important Nugget is to him.

"Chelsea shares the same experiences and they start to bond and connect. At this point his plans start to go out of the window and we see him in a turmoil of love, connection, motive and plan."

Ravi also has a complicated relationship with his dad, and is "bitter" about Nish.

"I think it’s interesting that he doesn’t call him dad, and that he calls him Nish. He’s at a point where he is done with his dad, and he wants to prove that he is a much better man than Nish thinks he is.

"He’s trying to prove that he doesn’t need his acceptance or his love and that he doesn’t need anything from him. Within that Ravi is still very cut-up and bitter towards his dad," he added.
