Shaheer Sheikh finalised to play the lead in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai's spin-off; Rajan Shahi confirms
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has complete 10 long years since it first aired, and while the feat was celebrated with a huge bash with the entire cast, looks like producer Rajan Shahi has something else in store for the fans too. The Shivangi Joshi-Moshin Khan starrer will soon get a spin-off, which of course has been in the news for a long time now, and if the latest reports in Times of India are to be believed, Shaheer Sheikh will be playing the male lead in the show.
Rajan Shahi, confirmed the same to the daily and said that they have been working on a spin-off for the show that has completed 10 years. He also added how Shaheer will be seen in a completely different avatar, the kind which is nothing like roles he has done before. He further added how he realised that there are certain characters of the original show that can be explored. He also added that the show is yet to get a title just as yet.
Shaheer too spoke to the daily and said that he has been in talks with the production but since he is in Jammu since the past few days he will be taking things forward once he returns to Mumbai today. Shaheer was last seen in Dastaan-E-Mohabbat: Salim Anarkali and the show was pulled off-air rather abruptly owing to lack of numbers. The same obviously, did upset both Shaheer and Sonarika Bhadoria alike.
For now, Shaheer fans, are you excited about the spin-off? Drop in your comments below.a
