Shahid Kapoor turns 40 years old on 25th February. On this occasion Ishan Khatter took to Instagram to share a nostalgic picture with Shahid. In the picture a young Shahid can be seen holding Ishan when he was still an infant. In the next picture Shahid and Ishan are seen posing together. Ishan captioned the post writing, “"Zindagiiiiii kaisi hai paheli haaye. Kabhi toh hasaaye, kabhi yeh rulaaye. But through it all.. I’ll always love you, bade bhai. Happy birthday."
Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar commented on Ishan Khatter’s post with a red heart emoji. Actor Ayushmann Khurrana later also commented on the post. Ishan previously spoke about comparisons with Shahid Kapoor and said, “I’ve always looked up to Bhai. And I continue to seek his advice. We are brothers and people will try to see similarities between us. I don’t mind. Because on a personal level, I’ve always looked up to him.”
On the work front Ishan was last seen in the critically acclaimed show by Mira Nair titled The Suitable Boy. He also starred in Khali Peeli opposite Ananya Panday.
