Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke actor Shaheer Sheikh celebrates his birthday today. The actor has given some amazing performances on-screen and has a massive fan following. He has been appreciated for his performances not just in India but in Indonesia as well. Today, he is one of the most successful actors from the telly town. Even after being such a big star, Shaheer Sheikh is a quite humble and down-to-earth person. He doesn’t like the limelight and prefers to be low-key. Recently, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Shaheer Sheikh said that he doesn’t really celebrate his birthday and at times even forgets his birthday.
He said, "There have been times when I’ve forgotten my birthday. If I had my way, I would want everyone to forget it. As I come from a humble background, as a kid, I never celebrated my birthday. In the routine of life and trying to make ends meet, my parents would forget our birthdays. In fact, now it is a tradition that my sisters and I, we all, forget each other birthdays." He also revealed that he does not like to cut cakes and that his friends initially used to get cakes for him but now they know he does not really like it. He says that his fans send in gifts and messages on his birthday and make him feel special but he doesn't like to be the centre of attention. He shares, "People tell me that I chose the wrong profession as being an actor also means being in the limelight. I agree but I became an actor for the art, to be able to live another life via a character that I essay and I feel I have lived so many lives through all the roles I have played."
Shaheer Sheikh also said that wasn’t a bright student and that scared him as he thought he wouldn’t be able to take care of his parents. However, he is glad that is not the case now. He also speaks about marrying Ruchikaa Kapoor last year. He said, "Being a public figure, you need to acknowledge it and so I talked about my wedding. The pandemic made us realise that anything can happen at any point in time. One should not wait for the right time and do what you want to do, right now! This year, I would want to spend more time in Jammu with my parents."
