Shaheer also revealed to us that after playing some heroic characters on-screen, he is open to doing a negative character as well. 

"The only thing I keep in my mind while choosing a character for me is how exciting it is. I would also like to do a negative role if offered. Honestly, the actor feels content when he/she plays something which he hasn't done before. When you do something which is totally different from what you have done in your past. And that is reassuring yourself that you are not just playing yourself but a character."  

The actor also added, "Even if I am doing a negative role, I want to inspire the people in the right way. I have turned down offers before which demanded me to do something which I personally don't believe in. So, even if I play a bad character, the journey has to be like where he gets punished for his wrong doings. At the end of the day, people should get the message that if you do something wrong, it is not okay. As an actor, we have some responsibility. There are a lot of people who get inspired by us and it is our duty to give them the right message."
