Isidingo fans said goodbye to yet another popular character on the soapie, Prada Naicker, played by Ashish Gangapersad.

Ashish (29) shared the news of his departure from the soapie on the twitter yesterday.

 
Today was his last day on the set of Horizon Deep, a fictional town where characters in the soapie live. “Today was an extremely emotional day on set. It was like the waterworks were turned on,” Ashish tells YOU. The Isidingo staff wanted to throw Ashish a farewell party today but he didn’t want one. “I’m not very good with goodbyes and I don’t want people making a fuss over me.”
'I sincerely hope the character of Prada will be missed'

So why is Ashish saying goodbye to Isidingo, a soapie he joined five years ago?

“I want to focus solely on the projects that I am very passionate about.” Some of those projects include a movie and a legal series that he is working on as a producer and writer. He assures his fans that it won’t be long until they see him back on their TV screens.

According to Ashish he was not fired from the soapie. “I resigned on my own. I was not fired.”

“I sincerely hope the character of Prada will be missed. Prada was my first big break in the industry. I am going to miss a lot of things about playing Prada. He was a kind and gentle soul.”
