Shahid Kapoor


Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter is all set to make his Bollywood debut in Shashank Khaitan’s directorial Dhadak opposite Janhvi Kapoor. Shahid has been supporting Ishaan ever since the latter embarked upon his journey in Bollywood.

Speaking about whether he will work with Ishaan in future, Shahid said to a leading Indian daily, “It’s always beautiful to share a movie with family. In such a case, things become even more special. So yes, it would be great and I would be happy to work with any of them. In fact, I haven’t worked much with dad as an actor (Kapoor Sr directed Shahid in Mausam; 2011), and I would really love for more of that to happen. As for Ishaan, he is just starting out, so, let him take off [in his career]. We will discuss those thoughts [of working together] later.”

Shahid Kapoor’s performance in Padmaavat received lots of adulation. Talking about his family’s response over his performance in Padmaavat, Shahid revealed, “I remember everybody was very overwhelmed once the film got over. They all were very happy, overwhelmed and proud. They all know how long the journey [of preparing for and playing the character] has been and maybe, that’s why I got a lot of love from them (smiles). It always feels great when the family loves your work.”

Shahid Kapoor will be next featured in Batti Gul Meter Chalu which stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam. The film is helmed by Shree Narayan Singh. The film is slated to release on August 31, 2018.
