Shaheer Sheikh who is currently essaying the role of Abir in Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke on Star Plus was currently in Indonesia for the launch of his show Daastan-E-Mohabbat Salim Anarkali.
At the launch event, Shaheer Sheikh shared the stage with his Indonesian ex-girlfriend, Ayu Ting Ting. After sharing a romantic dance, Shaheer apologised Ayu Ting Ting for abruptly breaking up with her.
Shaheer stated that it's been a long time since they have met or spoken. He told Ayu that he didn't mean to hurt her, and if he did, then he was sorry. He further added that he knows they have moved on in life but he always wanted to say sorry to her.
Ayu Ting Ting accepted Shaheer's apology and stated that she has forgiven him and the former couple hugged it out.
In 2015, Shaheer Sheikh and Ayu Ting Ting, a single mother, were in a relationship. The duo did many shows and events in Indonesia together.
In fact, Ting Ting helped Shaheer settle well in the island country when he started off. That's when the two grew closer and started dating. Unfortunately, it was the language and culture barrier that got in their way.
In an interview to a leading portal in 2016, Shaheer Sheikh had opened up about his break-up with Ayu. He had said, "Even though she spoke English, we could hardly understand each other's emotions. People around also tried to influence us. They were against me dating her as she was a single mother. Misunderstandings snowballed into bigger issues. Sometimes, things don't work out when they aren't meant to be."
However, the relationship turned sour, and the two broke up in early 2016. The relationship ended abruptly with Shaheer returning to India to do be a part of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi on Sony Entertainment Television.
