Ishaan Khatter stated that he had no intention to make any fame for himself or to separate his identity from his brother’s name. He is proud to be identified as Shahid Kapoor’s brother and says there is no shame in it. Even though Shahid is Neelima’s son with her first husband Pankaj Kapur and Ishaan Khatter is her son with Rajesh Khatter.
Ishaan also says creating a separate identity for himself was never his quest and will never be. The passion for cinema is his own choice and that is not borrowed from anyone else.
“I believe if you are sincere with your work and you are good at it, then your identity will be created by default. Though it feels good if I am getting acknowledged for my work,” he added. Both Ishaan and Janhvi are tasting the glamour and attention that comes with being celebrities, they were also learning how to tackle the trolls.
