The best gift your parents can ever give you is of a younger sibling! Accept it or not, siblings make our childhood more memorable and beautiful by just being on our side. They can be our biggest cheerleader, worse enemy and a best friend when the time comes. From fighting on silly things to fighting with the world for each other, we grow up and become a pillar of support in each other's life. And Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor shares an exactly similar relationship with his younger brother, Ishaan Khatter.

We all know Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are 'half-siblings', yet they share a relationship like real brothers. After all, it was Shahid, who had influenced his mother, Neliima Azeem, to have another baby, so that he can have a brother. The adorable sibling duo shares a beautiful bond.
Recently, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Ishaan opened up on being referred to as Shahid's brother. He said, "I am very proud of the fact that I am his brother." Ishaan further clarifies that he doesn't intend to ride on his fame. The 24-year-old actor stated, "I don't intend to ride on his fame or anything of the sort. If somebody recognises me as his brother, I don't have an ego about it. That's not something that would ever bother me. But I am very aware of the fact that I started getting recognised as his brother when I was 15. Before that, not many people knew too much about me. I started being seen in one-two places with him, then how the media is — there was curiosity about a boy who's coming into a certain age."

Ishaan further revealed that he will always be Shahid's cheerleader, "I've just begun. Why should it take away from my talent? He started off 14 years before me, made such a beautiful place and mark for himself. I will always be his cheerleader, he's my blood, brother, family. For me, I don't see any reason to try and create a separate sort of identity for myself. That will happen on it's own."
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Neliima ji had shared that Shahid always wanted a sibling and forced her to have another baby. The actress had revealed that it was Shahid, who wanted me to have a child again. He was 14, and Neliima Azeem and Rajesh Khatter were happily married. She was working, and the thought of having a baby never crossed her mind. But Shahid specifically wanted a brother. However, the veteran actress wanted a girl, and that's why she couldn't have promised Shahid a brother. And after the delivery, her doctor didn't congratulate the parents but congratulated Shahid as he had gotten his baby brother.
