Shoaib’s father had undergone surgery in February and was under observation for a long time.

A few days ago, Shoaib held a live session with his fans on YouTube and recalled his days of struggle in the industry. He had revealed that he went against his father’s wishes to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

Shoaib had shared, “Dad told me to complete my studies first, and then we’d see what happens. I didn’t know anyone in the film industry, so my struggle began in Bhopal. I used to go for whatever auditions I could find. I knew they were fake auditions, and that they would demand money, but I’d still go just to be able to rehearse how to deliver dialogues.”

On the work front, Shoaib is best known for playing Prem Bhardwaj in Sasural Simar Ka and participating in Nach Baliye 8. He was last seen in a single Yaar Dua along with Dipika Kakkar recently.
