Showers are pouring in for the young and charming actor Shariq, who made his debut in the recent release ‘Pencil’. The actor was seen as an antagonist in the film for which he had received huge positive acclaims from Media critics.
The tall and handsome Shariq hails from a family of professional actors. His father is Riyaz Khan who had played many important roles in many films. His Mother is Uma Riyaz who played a hired killer in Biriyani and a cop role in Mouna Guru.
Shariq happens to be the grandson of veteran actress Kamala Kamesh. “Since from my childhood I have always loved to see the world through the Lens and hence I have a great passion towards Photography. My ultimate craze towards visuals made me to watch almost all language films” says Shariq.
The youngster who is currently doing his Animation studies feels happy for his antagonist character in ‘Pencil’ movie. “Director Mani Nagaraj spotted me through my photographs on Facebook and he had given this wonderful opportunity.
The offer came on my dad’s birthday and I was quite nervous about the idea of acting on big screen. It was my parents who motivated me for the big step and I really feel proud for being a part of ‘Pencil’. Most of the top stars who excel today are the ones who had shone in negative roles earlier,” says Shariq.
