Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke actor Shaheer Sheikh has been appreciated for his role as Abir in the show. His chemistry with Rhea Sharma is loved by the audience. The actor recently in an interview with the Times Of India revealed what makes him connect with his character Abir in the show and why the show is so special to him. Shaheer Sheikh spoke about his character and said, "My on-screen character Abir is very similar to me in real life and that’s why I never had to prepare for it. I love to see how he stands up for his family and loved ones. With this character I have learned to be there for my people. Generally, we tend to focus more on our life and how we want to live it, but this character has a special quality to be always there for his loved ones, and how and when they might need you."
"It made me realise how important it might be for my family, my people, that I call them, and be there for them, just ask them or just greet them, every once in a while. It has changed that in me. I am now actively calling and talking to my family, my friends, " Shaheer added. Shaheer Sheikh has impressed us with so many of his show such as Navya… Naye Dhadkan Naye Sawaal, Kya Mast Hai Life, Mahabharat, Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi and now Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke. The actor said that he does not watch his shows but Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke is an exception. Shaheer said, "I generally don’t watch the shows I am acting in, but since I got time now as I was at home for a few days, so I watched the first four-five shows of YRHPK, and it was quite gripping. Like even when I am watching international shows, there are moments which are not interesting and you check your phone or do some things like that, but the episodes of this show that I saw, I didn’t get distracted even for a second. It’s very crisp, there is like a thriller touch to it, not exactly a thriller but it’s very gripping. You want to know what’s going to happen next, even though I know the script and have acted in the scenes, I was still curious and that I think is very rare that an actor who knows the story and who knows what’s going to happen but still, he wants to know what’s going to happen next."
Shaheer was also asked if he wanted to be an actor since the start. He revealed, "I was ambitious of giving a good life to my family, and the people who are with me. Because when you have seen difficult times in your life, you of course want to work hard and make sure that your family doesn’t go through the same phase again. Even since childhood if someone asked me what do you want to become when you grow up, I would say I want to become a good son, and a good friend."
