Ishaan Khatter Opens Up On Being Identified As Bollywood Actor, Shahid Kapoor's Brother

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. (Recommend Read: Abhinav Kohli Reconciles With Son, Reyansh After 3 Months, Post Accusing Wife, Shweta Of Separation)

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." (Also Read: Aly Goni Penned His Feelings For Alleged Girlfriend, Jasmin Bhasin, Is Her Reply A Confirmation?)

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.  (Don't Miss: Singham' Fame, Kajal Aggarwal Might Be Secretly Engaged To A Businessman, All Set For Wedding)
