Popular TV actor Shaheer Sheikh won several hearts with his performance as Abir in ‘Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke’. His sizzling chemistry with Rhea Sharma created a lot of buzz on social media. The show, which was the spin-off of ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’, went off the air after a successful year and a half on Star Plus.
Shaheer’s ardent fans have been eagerly awaiting his small screen comeback since ‘YRHPK’ aired its last episode. The gossip mills were buzzing with rumors that the ‘Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi’ actor would be starring in Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming show on Zee TV.
It was rumored that Shaheer would play the role of a doctor in the new show. Eisha Singh, last seen in ‘Ishq Subhan Allah’, could romanticize Shaheer in the new daily soap, a report in Tellychakkar suggested.
The ‘Mahabharat’ star has put an end to speculation surrounding his new show. He confirmed he is not playing Ekta Kapoor’s romantic drama while responding to a message on Twitter.
“Not true,” tweeted Sheikh.
Shaheer married his longtime girlfriend Ruchikaa Kapoor in November 2020. The two lovebirds opted for a court marriage due to the COVID-19 crisis. The ‘Navya’ actor had posted an adorable photo with his wife to share the good news with his fans.
Shaheer and Ruchikaa met on the sets of Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Judgmentall Hai Kya’. The black comedy hit the silver screens in 2019.
The couple will be joining a traditional wedding after the COVID-19 situation in the country improves. They often share nice pictures with each other on social media.
