Speaking about the same to a leading daily, Rajan Shahi said that, “We are working on a spin-off of 'YRKHH', which completed 10 years, recently. Shaheer has been signed on to play the male lead. He will be seen in a dynamic role, which will be different from his previous outings. I realised that some characters from the original show deserve to be explored further in the spin-off. The title of the new show is yet to be finalised.”
This is indeed a great news for Shaheer fans as his last show 'Dastaan-E-Mohabbat Salim Anarkali' opposite Sonarika Bhadoria recently went off-air abruptly.
Shaheer too reacted on the same and told Bombay Times that, “Yes, I have been in talks with the production house, but I was in Jammu over the past few days. I will be returning to Mumbai today, and will take things forward.”

'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' spin-off will reportedly go on floors in the next few weeks.

Speaking about Shaheer Sheikh, he made his TV debut with Hungama's teen drama 'Sanya'. Whereas, he rose to fame afater playing the lead role of 'Anant' in Star Plus show 'Navya' opposite Soumya Seth. Post which, he went on to feature in popular shows like 'Mahabharat', 'Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi' among others.
