Shaheer Sheikh is one name from the Indian TV industry that enjoys a stardom unmatched by many. On a medium that is majorly ruled by women, the actor has made a name for himself that today any project that he is associated with, its value and credibility automatically increases. However, at times that success might come in the way of him exploring the potential he has because of the tag of a TV actor.
Recently, Shaheer Sheikh got into an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Bubble where he opened up about this issue, revealing if it has ever hindered him getting projects on other mediums, especially on the big screen.
Talking about the label of a TV actor and how it has affected him in trying to take a step from TV to films, the actor said, “Everyone wants to do good work. Agar platform better hai, bada hai you want to do that (If the platform is bigger and better, you would want to do that). But I also feel at the same time whatever I have got, I never expected ki itna bhi kuch milega mujhe. (But I also feel at the same time whatever I have got, I never expected that I will get even that much). How I convince myself is that an old lady sitting at home, who doesn’t go out to movie theatres and can only watch TV, it’s my duty to entertain her. So, that’s my motivation to go and work every single day.”
On the small screen, Shaheer has been part of some successful shows like Navya, Mahabharat, Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi and Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke. Currently, he is seen in the show Woh Toh Hai Albelaa on Star Bharat. Apart from that, he has also done the OTT revival of Pavitra Rishta: Its Never Too Late.
