MUMBAI: TV heartthrob Shaheer Sheikh was supposedly the first choice to play the character of Anurag in Balaji Telefilms’ Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2.
The news was proved false after Shaheer signed Writers Galaxy Studios’ Dastaan-E-Mohabbat: Salim Anarkali to play the Mughal prince Salim.
At the launch of Dastaan-E-Mohabbat, the media asked Shaheer if he was actually approached to play Anurag.
The actor responded saying, ‘Well, let’s not talk about Kasautii and speak about this show. Dastaan-E-Mohabbat is very close to my heart, and playing Salim’s character was a dream come true for me. But yes, Kasautii is a good show and I have really liked the promos. I will watch the show, as it has my good friend Erica (Fernandes) in it.’
It seems like Shaheer is no mood to talk about Kasautii. Here’s wishing Shaheer all the very best!
Dastaan-E-Mohabbat will air on Colors from 1 October.
