Qubool Hai fame actor Shehzad Sheikh recently got the opportunity to play the role of an army officer for the very first time in his acting career!!
He will be seen being part of MTV’s latest fiction series, Love On The Run, hosted by Shantanu Maheshwari.
Shehzad has been paired opposite Saanvi Talwar. While the former will be an officer in uniform, the latter will be seen as a prostitute.
Says Shehzad who is also part of Colors’ upcoming show Bepannaah, “It was great to add the colors of the uniform on myself. After donning the avatar, I somewhere felt that I might fall short of the required fitness level to play such a role. However, I am happy that I could essay the part very well. The scenes required me to show high levels of fitness, and I shot it with ease.”
Shehzad is left a bit baffled after witnessing the entire fire episode on the sets of Colors’ Bepannaah. “Yes, we were all there and it was a great effort by the team to send all the people out. Unfortunately, one boy lost his life. Gopi Verma was a very hard-working boy.”
After playing the character in uniform, Shehzad is hopeful of getting back to the set of Bepannaah very soon. “Yes, the shoot post the fire incident is slated to start soon. Hoping for the best.”
Shehzad, wish you luck!!
