Ishaan Khatter on Shahid Kapoor
In an interview with ETimes, Ishaan Khatter said that sibling relationships are bound to have ‘friction.’ He was referring to his elder brother Shahid Kapoor. The Pippa actor said that he never had a traditional relationship with him because of their 15-year age gap. He said, “But he’s about 15 years older than me, so he is like a father figure, the predominant male figure.” Ishaan further revealed that Shahid was the only one who was there for him because of this there is a “line of respect.”
In the same conversation, Ishaan called Shahid “eternally youthful” and joked about the secret of his young look. “Everyone looks at him now and says that we two are only a few years apart. I think he’s a vampire, he drinks blood (laughs)”, Ishaan added.
