Shaheer Sheikh, one of the most prominent figures in the Indian television space, is celebrating his 36th birthday today on 26th March, 2020. The actor, who began his acting career with Kya Mast Hai Life (2009-10) and followed it up with several successful soaps, can be currently seen in Star Plus’ popular show Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke wherein he plays the character of Abir.

When asked about how is he celebrating his birthday, Sheikh tells an entertainment portal, “If you know me a little, you will know I don’t have birthday plans. Someone asked me on the sets that what are your plans for your birthday and I completely forgot. And it was that person who made me realize it is going to be in this time frame when we will not be shooting.”

Talking about how has the past one year been for him, the actor says, “I am happy with how things have been. I wanted to do something like this (Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke) because my last two shows needed a lot of efforts and doing historical is no easy. I am not saying this is easy but comparatively, a historical character needs a little more effort but this comes more naturally to me. The character has been liked by the audiences and I am happy how people have responded to the show. It was a bold move by the producers and the channel, of course, to make something like this. We are not doing anything new with the story but the approach, the writing, is different.”

He also speaks about breaking stereotypes and misconceptions in society with Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke. “That was the approach of the show from the very beginning, both Rajan sir and Garima. From the very beginning, that is how they wanted to treat the show and they did not want to drag anything and pick socially relevant issues, which they did. And I am very happy about it since we did stick to our original track. The equations between all the characters are also quite interesting and relatable in today’s times,” he says in conclusion.
