Popular actor Aasif Sheikh of ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain’ fame, has been roped in for a pivotal role in Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Bharat’.

Sheikh, who has worked with Khan in films like ‘Karan Arjun’, ‘Bandhan’, Pyaar Kiya To Darn Kya’, ‘Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa’, ‘Auzaar’ and ‘Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar’, confirmed the news to Mirror.

He told the publication, “I have only three friends, and Atul (Agnihotri, Bharat producer) is one of them, so I was more than happy to be a part of this film. Also, I really like Ali Abbas Zafar as a director and I can’t wait to collaborate with Salman again. I am playing his sister’s husband in the film who always delivers these one-liners and there is a big time span that we cover together. I have known Salman since his Maine Pyar Kiya days. He is a very special person.”

Asked why he’s not taken up much on film offers recently. He said, “I have been getting offers, but something should interest me, and my focus presently is on my TV show. It caters to people from ages 4 to 80. In fact, just a few days ago, while I was waiting in my car for the signal to turn green, a young boy of about four from the car next to mine called out to me by my character’s name — Vibhu. The show has given me fame, name and money too and I don’t want to lose out on it for just anything. However, Bharat is special, and I can’t wait to start work on it.”
