Born in Punjabi family in Pakistan's fourth-largest city, Rawalpindi, Javed Sheikh made his acting debut in the Lollywood film Dhamaka, released on 14 December 1974.[2] 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.[1] In 2002, he directed Yeh Dil Aap Ka Huwa, in which he also played a supporting role.[3]

In 2005, he switched to acting in Bollywood films and appeared in the films like Shikhar (2005) and Jaan-E-Mann (2006).[4] 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), 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).

Personal lifeEdit

Sheikh's first marriage was with Zinat Mangi, a TV/film supporting actress of that era, with whom he has a daughter, Momal Sheikh and a son Shehzad Sheikh. Since the divorce from Zinat Mangi, he is still officially single but has been linked to several Lollywood film actresses. He is the brother of Saleem Sheikh and Safeena Sheikh, brother-in-law of Behroze Sabzwari and uncle of Shehroz Sabzwari.
