Ishaan Khatter recently made his Bollywood debut in the hit film Dhadak. Ishaan starred in the film alongside Janhvi Kapoor and immediately made a name for himself. However many people continue to remember Ishan as just Shahid Kapoor's brother. Now in a recent interview, Ishaan said that he is not bothered at all by people knowing him as Shahid Kapoor's brother. He said, "I do not feel irked by the fact that I am often recognized as his brother. I came into the public eye at a young age of 15 and have been associated with him since then. That image has lived longer than the independent actor that I am now."
"Initially, I would always be discussing with him his choices of films and his roles, just to get a perspective and learn. It's because of the fact that we are passionate about the same thing, I find myself very fortunate to go up to him, sit with him and learn from his experiences, " he added.
He further said, "I have learnt a plethora of things from him. He has a lot of strong qualities that I really look up to and really admire. He has held up to a certain value system that has made him the person he is today. He is focused."
Ishaan also spoke about his reel and real-life relationships with Janhvi Kapoor and Ananya Panday. He said, "Ananya truly enjoys exploring herself as a performer and is a very honest person. On the other hand, Janhvi is extremely sincere and is always committed to the cause of doing a lot of good work. She is very curious, an explorer, and tries to get it done to perfection in the first take itself."
