Actor Shaheer Sheikh who is married to Ruchikaa Kapoor embraced parenthood after he welcomed a daughter Anaya on 9 September 2021. Since her birth, Shaheer keeps sharing some adorable pictures and videos on his Instagram handle which only makes our hearts warm. However, in an exclusive interview with Shaheer, he talks about life with his daughter Anaya and how parenthood has changed him.

That’s not it, the Pavitra Rishta 2 actor furthermore shares it for the first time ever that Anaya wasn’t a planned child, but he’s happy she arrived earlier than expected in life as his late father got to spend time with her before Shaheer lost him earlier this year.


While exclusively speaking to us, Shaheer said, “I treat her like an adult. I will ask her and I will push her around, we dance, we do all kind of things. I treat her like an adult that’s what Ruchikaa also feels like do you want to eat and do you want to go out. I ask her everything beforehand. She understands the importance of it what I feel is in us I mean I have felt that as a kid for your parents you are always the kid and you don’t know anything. I feel somewhere that you should give every person that opportunity to express and to tell you or ask them what they feel like about it or what they want to do.

Speaking about his late father’s loss, the Mahabharat actor gets emotional as he mentioned his father would always smile and has never seen him frowning.

He has only taught me to look at the bright side always. I feel I was not ready to get married but it all happened on its own. I’m saying this for the first time, we didn’t even plan Anaya, it just happened and he got to spend time with her I’m thankful for that you know. You are a kid till the time your father is there the moment he goes you have to take control you have to make sure that everyone is okay and he was the eldest in the family. Things changed drastically because of that for me and he would always always smile. It’s what I remember the only thing I remember him doing is he has never frowned also. I don’t know how to say this, meri mummy ke upar bhi unhone kabhi chilaya nahi hai mere samne, so you can imagine that kind of a person. he knew I guess I don’t know why I’m talking so much okay let’s talk about something else,” Shaheer Sheikh told Bollywood Bubble.
