On the professional front, Shaheer Sheikh is currently seen in the popular show, Pavitra Rishta 2.0, opposite Ankita Lokhande.

On January 18, 2022, Shaheer Sheikh took to his Twitter handle and informed his massive fanbase about his father's ill health. The Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actor revealed that his father is on ventilator at the moment, after a sudden drop in his health.

Shaheer Sheikh is deeply-attached to his father and the doting son time and again shares pictures with his dad on his social media handles. For instance, on September 9, 2020, when his father had turned a year older, Shaheer had taken to his IG handle and had shared a set of beautiful pictures of his parents. We could see his father celebrating his birthday with his wife. However, along with the pictures, Shaheer had also penned a heartmelting note for his dearest daddy, and it could be read as:
"Thank you for leading by example. Thank you for instilling in us the right moral code and values. #happybirthdaypapa."
On their wedding anniversary, i.e. on October 20, 2021, Shaheer Sheikh had shared a lovely picture with his whole family. The picture had featured his wife, Ruchikaa Kapoor, his parents, a few other kids and members of the family. However, what had caught our attention was a kid, whose face was hidden with a sunflower sticker. Yes, it was none other than, Shaheer and Ruchikaa's then-one-month-old daughter, Anaya. Alongside the picture, he had written:
We hope and pray for Shaheer Sheikh's father's speedy recovery!
