Best known for his long-running, starring role as Rajesh Kumar in the SABC3 soap opera Isidingo, Jack Devnarain will make his debut on e.tv’s daily drama IMBEWU: The Seed as Sanil Maharaj a powerful Durban businessman on the first of June.
e.tv viewers will see a different side of Jack as he plays a villain with a reputation of corporate takeovers.
He is first introduced into our world when Pranav appoints him chairman of the Maluju board, as a condition for taking a lower shareholding in Maluju Oil.
As the layers of his character unravel, we will soon discover that Sanil is a treacherous and merciless predator. He’s a man to whom loyalties and allegiances mean nothing, and are often left in tatters in the wake of the pursuit of power. But this is well hidden beneath a charming, suave and a charismatic exterior.
With Sanil in our world, no one is safe. No one is more aware of this than Ngcolosi. He’s wary of the man, and his presence in the world unsettles him. We anticipate that it’s only a matter of time before the two men cross swords. And if anyone is a worthy adversary to challenge and depose Ngcolosi.
Catch Jack Devnarain from the 1st of June on IMBEWU at 9:30PM on etv.
