Marc Anwar, a Pakistani-born actor and producer, residing in Great Manchester is currently in news for being fired from one of his popular shows, ‘Coronation Street’ due to his offensive tweets for India.



Apparently, Sunday Mirror informed the ITV Network about racist tweets Marc Anwar posted on social media website Twitter which led to his dismissal from the show. The actor who plays Sharif Nazir is said to have referred to Indian people as “b——s” and “p— drinking c—s” in tweets that he had posted on Friday. The tweets,  however, can no more be found anywhere on social media now.

The ITV has made the official statement to have fired the actor from the show.

“We are deeply shocked by the entirely unacceptable, racially offensive comments made on Twitter by Marc Anwar. We have talked to Marc and, as a consequence of his comments, he will not be returning to Coronation Street with
immediate effect.” the statement on The Telegraph read.



However, the popular actor who has also starred in popular films like Captain Phillips and The  51ST state, is now denying all allegations. At the same time, he has posted an apology video on Twitter.

Further, he kept posting proofs of his previous tweets to show how he cares the least about defending Pakistani regime.
