Coronation Street star Adam Hussain unveils new project away from the soap

Coronation Street star Adam Hussain has unveiled a new project away from the soap.

The Aadi Alahan actor has started a movies and TV podcast called Going for a Take with actors Ben Stevenson-Langley and Matthew Khan (Doctors).

An Instagram explainer describes it as a "film and TV podcast where 3 actors + a special guest discuss their takes on the latest films hitting your cinema screens".

"In this biweekly podcast, we chat with those working both in front of and behind the camera, diving deeper into their favourite films, their inspirations, and what it's really like being on set," the description says.

"Each episode will be shown on YouTube and the audio will be streamed on Spotify," it adds, with the first episode available from today (March 1).

Adam's podcast comes after fellow Corrie stars Jack P Shepherd, Colson Smith and Ben Price launched their own series called Sofa Cinema Club a few years ago, which is now called On the Sofa.

Adam has played the role of Aadi since 2020. His character was recently at the centre of a carbon monoxide scare that saw Aadi almost die after not realising his alarm had malfunctioned.

Following his shocking kiss with sister Asha's girlfriend Nina Lucas, Aadi passed out in his flat due to carbon monoxide poisoning, and was only saved because Amy Barlow stopped by to speak about their row earlier that week.

After his door was broken down, Aadi was rushed to hospital, and was thankfully fine as he was told that Amy had saved his life. He also apologised to Asha over the Nina kiss, insisting it meant nothing.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
