Shaheer Sheikh has grown with every role.

By ANIL MERANI| Last night my bhabhi messaged me saying she loves Shaheer Sheikh’s work in the Star Bharat show Woh To Hai Albelaa.
This WhatsApp made me think about the brand value of Shaheer. This Kashmir guy has risen on the tube scene as a phoenix.

A cursory glance at his distinguished CV shows that he has, over the years, done all kinds of roles with aplomb, be it Mahabharat, Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi Dastaan- Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke and now Albela.

He has grown as an actor with every outing, and the best thing I like about Shaheer is his ability to underplay. I am sure this quality will hold him in good stead whenever he makes the faith of leap plunge into celluloid.


Coming to Albelaa , as Bhabhi said, he brings out the character’s emotion in toto. While Kanha is not the most brilliant dude, he has his heart in the right place.

Shaheer’s chemistry with the female lead( Hiba Nawab) and his on-screen brothers( Anuj Sachdev and Kinshuk Vaidya) is spot on and, at a time, makes you shed a tear.

One other primary attribute of Shaheer is his ability to stay away from controversies as far as possible.

Relationship links are standard in tv, but he has always maintained his dignity, preferring to let his work speak for itself.

Shaheer’s Instagram fan following is huge, showing how much his work has impacted his stans.

I hope, along with fiction, Shaheer also takes a non-fiction detour, giving his fans a peek into his real personality.

We wonder whether he would love to shake a leg in Nach or challenge his fear in Khatron Ke Khiladi.
