TV actor Shaheer Sheikh became a favourite after his stint as Dev Dixit in soap opera Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. The telly world heartthrob is currently essaying the role of Abeer in Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke and Salim in the historical show Dastaan-E-Mohabbat Salim Anarkali.
Yesterday, Shaheer took to his Instagram feed to share a picture with ex Ayu Ting Ting, rumoured ex-Erica Fernandes and current co-star Sonarika as they reunited in Indonesia. He wrote, “Kuch rang pyaar ke Salim Anarkali 😁#indonesia @antv_official #shaheersheikh”
What caught our attention was Erica’s Instagram story. She shared a selfie thanking Shaheer’s ex GF Ayu Ting Ting for gifting her a pair of coloured contact lenses.
Isn’t it such a sweet gesture on Ayu’s part?
About two months ago, at the launch event of Dastaan-E-Mohabbat Salim Anarkali in Indonesia, Shaheer shared the stage with his ex-girlfriend Ayu Ting Ting. He took it as an opportunity to apologise to her for abruptly breaking up with her. He spoke about how he’s guilty. He said that he is extremely apologetic if he hurt her in any way. He mentioned that even though it’s all in the past, he felt like apologising to her. She immediately forgave him and the two hugged on stage.
Shaheer also took to his Instagram account to share a picture with Ayu with a heartfelt caption. He wrote, “I guess to have a clear heart we need to accept, forgive and be forgiven. Thank you for forgiving me and gifting me closure. Thank you. @ayutingting92.”
Shaheer and Ayu were in a relationship in 2015. The actress helped him settle down in Indonesia and she also assisted him in getting acquainted with the culture and language. However, the language and cultural differences became a reason for their break up. The couple only dated for two months.
Shaheer had spoken about his split with Ayu to a leading daily in 2015. He had said, “Even though she spoke English, we could hardly understand each other’s emotions. People around also tried to influence us. They were against me dating her as she was a single mother. Misunderstandings snowballed into bigger issues. Sometimes, things don’t work out when they aren’t meant to be.”
Interestingly, there were rumours about Shaheer and Erica dating while the two were working together in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. But the two claimed to be good friends.
