His role as Anant in Navya... was Shaheer's first big-ticket daily soap where he played the ideal son of the house and also, played the role of a caring husband and with tonnes of emotional scenes in the show, Shaheer had a broader scope to show off his prowess as an actor, which he did.


For his first mythological project, Shaheer played the role of Arjun and according to us, that was a game-changer for the hunk.

From growing out his tresses to bulking up for the role of an archer, Shaheer was suddenly the new hunk on the block with the advantage of some exemplary acting chops and he went all out.

Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi

How can we ever forget Dev Dixit? The perfect son who later on went on to learn from his mistakes and become the perfect husband and father.

Shaheer played a mother's 'aankhon ka taara' in the show, played a complex character, where innumerable time he had to display extreme emotions, be it, love, hatred or even break down. And every single performance of his beat his previous portrayals.

Dastaan-E-Mohabbat Salim Anarkali

After convincing the audience that he can dabble in not just chocolate boy roles but historicals too, Shaheer impressed everyone with his portrayal of the in love and heartbroken Salim, who had to give up his Anarkali.
