They also appeared in the new series, Kahi Ankhi, and Zindagi Gulzar Hai. He is currently seen in the drama serial First Love with Maya Ali which is his second collaboration after Beyond Hit Lo.

A few days ago, a photo of Shehryar Munawar with Deepika Padukone went viral on social media. The two stars met in Dubai and posed for pictures together. As soon as the photo went viral, fans speculated that the actors were pairing up for a project, but the photo was later deleted from various social media portals.

In an interview with Rabia Mughni from Fuchsia Magazine, Shehryar Munawar talked to Deepika Padukone about the real story behind her viral photo.

He said, “You may have seen that picture on social media for only 20 minutes and after that I removed it from everywhere but obviously not from every social media portal.” But thanks to the journalists and my PR team who helped me remove this photo at my request.

He added, “And nothing really happened, it was just a relaxed human conversation and we were together for dinner for 2-3 hours. There is nothing like a project that we are doing together. Somehow, the picture that I didn’t want to leak came out of nowhere because it could be a nuisance to her and me.
