Sukumar, Santhosh Sivan, Rajeev Ravi, and Amal Neerad. He made his acting début in Fazil’s Kaiyethum Doorath (2002) while working as an assistant director. He made his breakthrough in the film Premam.
Shahir marked his directorial debut with Parava. The movie stars Shane Nigam, Arjun Ashokan and Zinil Zainudeen. However, it is also popular for Dulquer Salman’s cameo appearance.
