Former soap star Nitin Ganatra said his family’s corner shop was attacked by racist thugs last year.

The 54-year-old actor, best known for playing Masood Ahmed on BBC soap EastEnders for more than a decade, recently opened up about the incident on a podcast.

He explained the incident was a horrific reminder of the racial abuse he faced in the 1980s.

Nitin spoke about her experience with the company on the Made in the Midlands podcast. He said: “Growing up was tough. We had a corner shop that got attacked a lot.”

However, the actor said the family “tapped it [their] step,” explaining that they did it because they thought, “‘This is how people behave in this country’.”

However, he stated that the store has even been targeted in recent years, with a relative being attacked. He said: “The windows were smashed and my brother was attacked last year.”

Nitin – who performed at EastEnders from 2007 until his departure in 2019, said his family’s shop was once attacked by a group of 25 to 30 “skinheads”.
