Ishaan Khattar says he is not bothered by people calling him Shahid Kapoor's brother

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."
