Jaz Deol is known as Kheerat Panesar when he’s on EastEnders but he also has another job away from the spotlight
EastEnders actor Jaz Deol has revealed his interesting second job that he has while he’s not acting in the soap.
The star is best known for his role as Kheerat Panesar while on the soap and he joined the show back in 2019 as a businessman character who is the eldest child in the Panesar family.
But it seems he doesn’t spend all his time in Albert Square as he also has a more ‘normal’ job on the side.
The actor launched his property investment business, JHD Homes on Instagram back in February of this year which he regularly posts updates to.
His bio on the page says: “Passion for creating homes and building long term wealth.”
It seems that Jaz is focusing on Wales as an area to invest in at the moment as he mentioned the first property he closed on was three and a half hours away from him.

When he closed on his first property, he described it as a ‘significant moment’.
He wrote: “This is a significant moment for me because it finally feels real that I now own an asset in my company that will produce passive stream of income.
“I cannot wait to share photos and videos with you all and take you on the refurbishment part of this journey.”
Fans were worried that this new business opportunity meant that Jaz would be leaving EastEnders but it seems that he just likes to keep busy.
Jaz’s acting career is going just as well as his property career as he won the Best TV Character sections at the 2021 Asian Media Awards in October.
After winning his award he said: “To hear your name being called in a room full of people you admire and respect is an experience in and of itself.
“It’s surreal, emotional and overwhelming. In particular this one because it comes from MY community.
“To be embraced by such an audience and hearing those who came up to me afterwards share their feelings of connection to Kheerat Singh Panesar almost had me in tears.”
He went on to say that the award ‘motivates and inspires’ him even more to challenge and push himself and the character he plays on EastEnders.
Jaz then did a ‘shout out’ to all of the other nominees and winners as well as mentioning the future talent that the world is yet to see.
