Coronation Street character Yasmeen mentioned her first husband Sharif and son Kal in tonight’s episodes (Wednesday, February 24). But what happened to them?
On today’s episode of The Soap, Yasmeen looked for her jewelry box to see if she could sell some of the jewelry her first husband Sharif had given her.
She also wanted to get Kal’s medals out of the box. Alya found the box in the safe at Speed Daal, but Yasmeen was devastated to see Geoff got his hands on it and sold Kal’s medals.
But what happened to Kal and where is Sharif now?
Coronation Street Yasmeen: Who Are Sharif and Kal?
Sharif is Yasmeen’s first husband. They married in 1971 and a year later they had their only child, a son named Kal.
Kal grew up to marry a woman named Jamila and they had two children, Alya and Zeedan. Jamila died in 2o12, a year before Kal first appeared on the show.
Kal was the first of the Nazir family to appear on the cobblestones in December 2013.
In 2014, Yasmeen, Sharif, Alya and Zeedan were introduced.
How did Kal die?
During his time on the cobblestones, Kal had made friends with most of the people on the street.
He became friends with Gary Windass, but things took a turn when Kal discovered Gary was seeing Alya.
Kal started a relationship with Leanne and proposed to her in the Rovers’ backyard in May 2015. But when he realized he didn’t have the ring, he got it.
Leanne later found that 12 Victoria Court were on fire and went inside to rescue Carla Connor. When they got Carla out, they found Amy Barlow was still inside.
Amy’s mother, Tracy, started a fire without knowing her daughter was in the apartment.
Kal, Leanne, and Amy were caught when the roof collapsed and blocked the door. When the fire department came, they took Amy and Leanne down to the balcony with the ladder.
However, a gas canister exploded before Kal could be saved and he died.
The fire also killed Maddie Heath.
Did Sharif betray Yasmeen?
In August 2016, Sharif and Yasmeen celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary.
Yasmeen’s friend Sonia was kicked out of her home by her husband Tariq.
Sonia and Sharif slept together and Alya got suspicious of Sonia and confronted her grandpa.
He lied to Alya and told her that they had a one-time encounter a few years earlier, and Alya blackmailed him into giving her money for a machine in Underworld.
A few months later, their affair was revealed when Yasmeen heard Sharif and Sonia arguing about their relationship.

In November 2014, he left the cobblestone streets to stay with relatives in Newcastle.
