Popular TV actor Shaheer Sheikh says his father is on the ventilator following a “severe” Covid infection and asked fans to pray for his recovery.

The ‘Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi’ star took to Twitter on Tuesday evening and shared his father’s health status.

"My dad is on a ventilator, suffering from a severe covid infection…please keep him in your prayers," Sheikh wrote alongside a picture of his father.

The name and age of Sheikh's father could not be confirmed immediately.

Several of the actor's industry colleagues, including Hina Khan, Karanvir Sharma and Vatsal Sheth, wished for his father's speedy recovery.
