Born in Rawalpindi gawalmandi, Jawed Sheikh made his acting debut in the Lollywood film Dhamaka, written by Pakistani writer Ibn-e-Safi released on 14 December 1974. He acted in over 100 films in Urdu and Punjabi. He has also appeared in many television serials which have aired on PTV, Hum TV, Geo and A-Plus. The first film he directed was Mushkil, released in 1995. In 2002, he directed Yeh Dil Aap Ka Huwa, in which he also played a supporting role.
In 2005, he switched to acting in Bollywood films and appeared in films like Shikhar (2005) and Jaan-E-Mann (2006). In 2007 he appeared in Namaste London, Om Shanti Om and the Pakistani film Mein Ek Din Laut Kay Aaoon Ga. In 2008, he played a supporting role in Jannat. His most recent film as director was Khulay Aasman Ke Neechay, a big-budget film shot in four countries (Pakistan, India, United Arab Emirates and Australia). The production failed at the box-office, resulting in a net loss of Rs. 80 million. He has continued to appear in television series in Pakistan and recently appeared in many hit films in Pakistan such as Na Maloom Afraad (2014), Bin Roye (2015), Wrong No. (2015), Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (2015), Mehrunisa V Lub U (2017) and Na Maloom Afraad 2 (2017). He has occasionally returned to Bollywood as well appearing with Ranbir Kapoor in the Bollywood film Tamasha (2014) and with his daughter Momal Sheikh in Happy Bhaag Jayegi (2016). In 2018, Sheikh directed and acted in the film Wujood and appeared as a ghost named Dwarka Prasad in successful comedy film Saat Din Mohabbat In. His latest release is the hugely successful action comedy Teefa in Trouble.
Sheikh's first marriage was with Zinat Mangi, a television and film supporting actress of that era, with whom he has a daughter, Momal Sheikh and a son Shehzad Sheikh. Since the divorce from Mangi, he is still officially single but has been linked to several Lollywood film actresses, including Salma Agha. He is the brother of Saleem Sheikh and Safeena Sheikh, brother-in-law of Behroze Sabzwari and uncle of Shehroz Sabzwari. In news media interviews, he has a reputation of speaking frankly and candidly.
