Javed Sheikh (Urdu: جاوید شیخ‎, also spelled Javaid) (born 8 October 1954) is a Pakistani actor, director and producer who has devoted his career to the film industry of Lollywood, Bollywood and Pollywood films.[1]


Born in Pakistan's fourth-largest city, Rawalpindi, Javed Sheikh made his acting debut in the Lollywood film Dhamaka, released on 14 December 1974.[2]

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 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 Kay 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. 8 Crore.

Personal life[edit]

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 Shahzad. Since then Javed Sheikh has had several relationships with famous actresses like Neeli and Sana. Although it is widely assumed that he had a brief marriage with Neeli but both parties deny it. Since the divorce from Salma Agha, he is still officially single. He is the brother of Saleem Sheikh, brother-in-law of Behroze Sabzwari and uncle of Shehroz Sabzwari.
