Khalid "Kal" Nazir was a former army soldier and friend of Gary Windass who became a personal trainer after leaving the services and the death of his wife Jamila in 2012 who left him with children to bring up.

Kal was introduced by Gary to Dev Alahan who wanted to improve his level of fitness. Although he found Kal's training regime difficult, he and Dev became good friends and considered opening a gym together (with Dev's financial backing) on empty premises on Victoria Street. Conflict arose though when Kal needed his father, Sharif's money and Dev find that Mr Nazir Snr was demanding and overbearing to his son and his new business partner.

Another resident of Coronation Street who found Kal's services useful was Nick Tilsley who used his exercise advice as part of his recuperation from his August 2013 car crash. Kal found himself attracted to Nick's wife Leanne. After the breakdown of Nick and Leanne's marriage in January 2014, she and Kal began an affair. However over the coming months Nick felt that he was regaining his right mind and was hoping for reconciliation, Leanne decided not to take her relationship with Kal any further at this point and tried to maintain stability for stepson Simon.

Nick however found out about their fling when Kal let slip that he and Leanne were together when Tina McIntyre's body was discovered. This infuriated Leanne and she decided to call an end to the relationship. However after Tina's funeral, she decided that life was too short and stayed with Kal. Nick then waged a vendetta against them - he wound Leanne up at the bistro and exposed her murky past as a prostitute in front of Kal's family.

In December, Kal and Gary's friendship dissolved when Kal found out that Gary was seeing his daughter Alya. Using the empty 6 Coronation Street as a bolthole, and unaware that the property was up for auction on the same day, the couple were caught in a compromising position by Yasmeen and Kal, and although Alya confessed that they were seeing each other but nothing sexual had happened, Kal saw red and punched Gary and the confrontation quickly spilled out onto the street. The Nazirs then tried to convince Alya that Gary was nowhere near good enough for her.

In May 2015, Kal proposed to Leanne in the Rovers' back yard, but realised that he didn't have the ring and left to get it. Later, Kal and Leanne went into 12 Victoria Court to rescue Amy Barlow after her mother Tracy accidentally started a fire there, but the trio became trapped when the roof caved in and blocked the door. The fire brigade arrived and got Amy and Leanne out of the building to safety, but then a gas cannister caught fire and caused an explosion, killing Kal. His body was later recovered from the flat in a body bag.
