Shaheer Sheikh Reveals If He Will Ever Be a Part of Reality Shows Like Big Boss

Shaeer is undoubtedly one of the most versatile actors of the small screen, playing a variety of roles including that of a teenager boy in Star Plus popular youth show Navya, a mythological character of Arjun in Mahabharath to a doting son a father in Kuch rang pyar ke aise bhi. The actor has also a huge female fan following and we don’t need to mention why!

The actor recently went candid about a lot of things including his wishlist, his journey on television, what kind of roles he wants to pursue in future and many more things.

Shaheer reveals about his wishlist, “About my wishlist, I only wish to live yaar, live my life to the fullest and not just survive. I want to explore this world, I want to see everything that God has created, as much as I can. I want to travel, meet new people, explore as an actor, do different kinds of characters, help people and maybe if I can be an inspiration to someone, maybe understand what I should do in life and spread the knowledge.”

On his journey on Indian television, the actor replies, “With me, there have been drastic changes. I come from a very small village, I don’t think anyone else from my village was on TV before me, so, yeah it was a big thing for me. I had never done acting before so it was completely new to me and I had no idea how it started. I still remember my first shot for my first show, it took me one day to complete one scene. We couldn’t complete the scene because I couldn’t do it (laughs). That was my realization, I guess, that it won’t be easy.”

He further adds, “But, over the years, with experience, you learn so many things, you understand the craft and find your strengths. As a person, being an actor has made me a better person because you learn so much. When you portray a character, you are living it, it teaches you so much. I think Arjuna (Mahabharata) made a very big impact on me as a person. I think every character of mine has taught me something.”

On being asked about what types of characters and shows he wants to pursue in future, One thing I try to make sure is that I should not have done this in the past. Like it has to be different because it gives me satisfaction as an actor when I try something new. I am not being monotonous. I want to challenge myself, maybe put me out of my comfort zone. For Arjuna, I was supposed to speak ancient Hindi and it was not easy. I studied in an Urdu medium school so I did not have a great command over my Hindi but I wanted to take up the challenge. So, I guess, that is it.”

And the big question arises when the actor replies on being a part of any reality show like Big Boss or Khatron ke Khiladi, he says, “I don’t know that. (sighs) At the end of the day, I am an actor and would want to act and play a character but it totally depends if my dates are available and if there is something interesting and exciting enough for me. I might do that but right now, maybe no. I would rather prefer doing a character because it is very exciting when you have to prepare for a character, live someone else’s life. I feel whenever I play a character, that character consumes me during that period because I am hardly myself at that point. But maybe in future, you never know. Never say never (laughs).”
