The power-packed performer proved his acting prowess with Star Plus most popular mythological show Mahabharat. Shaheer teamed up with Swastik Productions once again for the show which broke all TRP records.

The Best Of Luck Nikki actor played the role of warrior prince Arjun in the series which ran for one year. The youth icon left no stone unturned to get into the skin of his character and learnt sword fighting and horse riding.

The viewers heartily accepted Shaheer Sheikh in the role of Arjun and all his hard work paid off.

Watching few scenes of Mahabharat reminded me how luck I am that I got the opportunity to portray the role of Warrior Prince Arjun. I believe it made me a better person. It taught me in order to be a winner I don’t have to compete with others, but with myself. try to be better then what I was yesterday, everyday. I feel it has made me more disciplined, aware, and confident. It also made me realise that we all need to learn and change with time. So thank you 🙏 Prince Arjuna for teaching me so much. And thank you makers of Mahabharat for believing in me as Arjun. #Arjun #Mahabharat #swastik @starplus #madMe #shaheerSheikh
