Recently, we saw Shahid Kapoor earning the title Asia's Sexiest Man. There is no doubt that he certainly deserves it. With all the hard work, perseverance and dedication he has shown towards his movies, and recent being Padmaavat, he has been one of the most loved male actors in India.
But here, I am not talking about Shahid and his achievements. Yes! Today there is someone else from his family who is the talk of the town and Shahid would be the happiest person to see that.
It's his super-talented half-brother Ishaan Khattar who is all set to make his debut in the Bollywood film industry. He will soon be seen in Shashank Khaitan's film Dhadak. Recently, Ishaan's international film's trailer was launched in India, and now we can't wait to see him on the silver screen.
Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor's father Pankaj Kapoor and mother Neelima Azeem married each other but later got separated. They then got married to different people. Ishaan is Neelima Azeem's son from her second husband, actor Rajesh Khattar.
The brothers are often seen chilling together. You must have seen Ishaan's Instagram account where he usually posts pictures with Shahid and his daughter. They share a very cordial bond with each other and Ishaan calls Shahid a father figure.
In Karan Johar's show, Koffee With Karan, Mira was reported saying that she shares a great equation with Shahid's family including his brother Ishaan. Mira and Ishaan are almost of the same age and are more like friends.
The actor is all set to make a mark in world entertainment industry. On the same note recently the trailer of his international film was released in India. The film will be released in March but has already been screened at the London Film Festival.
The movie is directed by an Iranian director, Majid Majidi.
On the trailer launch of his film, Ishaan was asked if his brother Shahid is his competition, to which his reply was the sweetest.
"All my life I have learnt so much by watching him. I can't possibly consider him as a competition to me and in fact, I would say we are a team," Ishaan answered.
According to News18, when Ishaan was questioned whether he asked Shahid before signing the film, he responded, "I live with my mother, so of course, I talk to her about the film offer and then the person whom I shared the news with was none other than my brother."
Though relations in Bollywood are very complicated, this family has managed to face and handle everything very positively. Everyone has a life of their own, but they still share a great equation with each other.
Ishaan will be featured opposite Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor in the film Dhadak which is directed by Shashank Khaitan. Ishaan's fans are really excited to watch him on the big screen.
