Sharif Nazir is the father of the late Kal Nazir and also an investor in his son's gym business, V Court Fitness.

Kal attempted to set up the business by his own means, becoming the partner of investor Dev Alahan but he found that he didn't have to financial means to back up his intentions. With great reluctance, Kal was forced to ask his father for the money, knowing that the dominant man would immediately belittle him by taking over the setting-up operations and overriding any objections from Kal and Dev. Within minutes of meeting Dev, he insisted that the fitting-out contract be taken away from Jason Grimshaw and given to someone he knew who was cheaper, telling Dev that his friendship with the young builder shouldn't interfere with a business decision. Kal was vociferous in his objections but his curt and dismissive father ignored his protestations. 

In August 2016, it was revealed that Sharif had been indulging in a seven-year long affair with a family friend named Sonia Rahman. When Sharif and Yasmeen were celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary at their home, Sonia suddenly turned up having been kicked out of her marital home by husband Tariq. Sharif felt uneasy and things weren't helped when an oblivious Yasmeen allowed Sonia to stay until things were sorted. Despite the awkwardness, the pair slept together when Yasmeen was out running an errand for Cathy Matthews. Sharif's granddaughter Alya began to suspect that Sonia was up to no good, due to her flirtatious looks towards Sharif. Alya took Sharif to task over it and he ended up confessing, stating that they had a one-off encounter, several years prior.


"You order drinks before introducing me, even?" (first line, to son Kal).
