Coronation Street viewers were disgusted last night when Dev Alahan told daughter Asha that her dead mother Sunita, would be ashamed of her. The shopkeeper could not contain his anger after David Platt made him aware that Asha’s sex tape was being circulated.
The teen was bullied by a video that Corey Brent recorded without her permission and later leaked to fellow schoolgirl Kelly Neelan. After David discovered the disturbing video on his son Max’s mobile, he quickly made Dev aware of it. However, instead of consoling his daughter, he responded with anger, saying, “You know what? I’ve been so proud of you recently, but not today,
But not now, I’m not disgusted and ashamed, and your mother would be too. “Viewers were stunned by his outburst, with one writing on Twitter,” Shouldn’t be ashamed and disgusted with Dev. How about showing her some love and helping her because I bet she’s hurt as well.
“Another shared:” Dev just gave the most devastating dad we’ve heard for a while on # Corrie. I was traumatized, and I didn’t have anything to do with it. @itvcorrie # coronation street. “As the third one posted,” Dev is a terrible dad! How do you blame your daughter for getting the video out of here? I’m seriously worried about her between her father and her brother. # CoronationStreet.
Sunita, played by Shobna Gulati, died in 2013 after ex-boyfriend Karl Munro trapped her in burning Rovers Return. Although she was saved from the blaze, she died later in the hospital after the evil Karl pulled the tubing to keep her alive.
In the meantime, Asha will be devastated by the decision of dad Dev to report the sex tape incident as she fears it would just further harm her reputation. However, Dev refuses to listen to her and files the incident to the school as well. Her worries are confirmed as her peers in the kebab shop are bullied by Dev’s meddling. She begs her father to withdraw his allegations to the police and the school, but Dev refuses at first.
Asha reaches the breaking point, and when she gets a load of nasty texts, she hurls her phone down to the floor. When Dev sees the pain, she is through, and he ends up agreeing to a U-turn.
