Actor Jack Devnarain, best known for his role as Rajesh Kumar on SABC3 soapie Isidingo, has announced that he is leaving the show.
Jack, who is celebrating his birthday today, took to Facebook to make the announcement and expressed his fondness for the show.
The Facebook post reads as follows:
“Friends, on Fri 9 Feb I celebrate my 47th year of this joyful adventure called life. Thank you for walking this journey with me and for reminding me of the virtues of gratitude and humility.
For the last 15 of my 47 years it has been my greatest privilege to bring you the character of Rajesh Kumar. But it is time to move on. I have shot my last scene on Isidingo and I say goodbye to dear friends and colleagues. I leave with the love and blessings of the show that has been my home ever since I took on the role, and I have no regrets.
I’ll be taking a short time-out this weekend and when I return it will be to celebrate the next stage of my career with you all. I started off on the small stages of community halls, bringing laughs, gasps, music and lunacy to people who love being entertained. I will return to the magic of live concerts and I hope you will join me!
Look out for my posts and we will meet again at events I will be co-promoting. Let’s keep it interactive, so I will rely on your feedback. I’ll put up my email address for all your comments, opinions and special requests.
Look out for my promotions company Dingo Dawg (Pty) Ltd and know that I’m here to promote the next generation of stars.”
Before Jack discovered his passion for acting, he worked as a policeman, reports Huff Post. The actor has been in the industry for 15 years with roles in City Ses’la and 37 Honey Street among others.
