Shaheer Sheikh who turned 34 yesterday, has been on a 13 year journey on our TV screens. In a recent interview, Sheikh reflects on his milestones.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Sheikh opened up about his experiences to date. “In a time when TV is criticised for its content, I had been blessed to be a part of some really out of the box shows. I have worked with creative smart minds who have gone against the trend and made some amazing shows. Be it Navya, Mahabharat or even more recently Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, all these shows have been a bold move by the makers and I feel proud they chose me as the lead.”
Asked if he would consider reality shows, Sheikh replied, “Not that I don’t want to do reality shows, but I feel I am an actor and acting is the best I can do. But if there are good opportunities and interesting formats coming my way, I would definitely think about it. I love adventure and dance, so maybe I can do something related to that.”
With the need to be competitive and strive to be best in the game, Sheikh was asked he feels competitive or insecure. “Not at all, I would be actually very happy if someone else fits into my place and brings in something new to the table. It’s always good to have a healthy competition rather than feeling insecure, I would instead love to work with someone like that. Collaborating with like-minded people is always a treat.”
