Neelima Azim Recalls Shahid's Demand For A Brother, And Dancing Mad On The Birth Of Ishaan Khatter

A relationship can only flourish when there is love, respect and understanding. Sometimes, people cannot stand their loved ones despite living with them for the rest of their lives, and sometimes, some people turn so important to us, even if we do not share any blood bond with them. Bollywood celebrities have taught us, love, in so many ways. Not just the movies, the real-life bonds of these celebrities are an inspiration. And some major inspiration is spread by the brother duo of B-town, Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter.

Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s bond needs no introduction. The two have an uncanny resemblance and crazy love for dance. Shahid has always been a protective brother for Ishaan, guiding him with right and wrong. However, Ishaan is what he is because of his hard work, but his brother, Shahid’s guidance cannot be missed. Although, Shahid and Ishaan are half-brothers as they both are born to Neelima Azim, this fact does not distance them ever. We can laud the two for their love and bond, on and on, but before us, it is their mother, Neelima Azim, who talks about the bond between two brothers.

In a conversation with Pinkvilla, Neelima Azim talked about how Shahid had pestered her to have a child again, and specifically a brother. She said, "It was Shahid who wanted me to have a child again. He was 14 and we (she and Rajesh Khatter) were well settled with our lives. I was happily working and the thought of having a baby again never crossed my mind. But Shahid specifically wanted a brother. I have my own brother so I knew what he meant. You can get married and have partners but your brother is the only one with your DNA after your parents aren't there with you. So I remember I wanted a girl and I couldn't have promised Shahid a brother. But my doctor, after Ishaan was born, didn't congratulate us first. She said, "Congratulations to Shahid. He's got his baby brother."

Neelima Azmi further recalled Shahid doing a full mad dance after knowing that he is blessed with a baby brother. She said, "After Ishaan was born, Shahid came to Yari Road where we used to stay, and went to the next gully where he played with his friends and did a full mad dance. He was so happy."

Talking about Shahid and Ishaan’s bond, she revealed that Shahid has always looked after Ishaan like his own child. She smilingly said, "I have several photos of them sitting and reading newspapers. So Shahid had a mini Shahid in his lap." She further added, "Shahid was a huge help in case of Ishaan. He's not only his biggest inspiration and motivation but I know it for a fact that Ishaan loves me because I'm his mother but he loves Shahid equally."

On Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan, Shahid too had admitted pestering his mother, Neelima Azeem for a baby brother as he had felt that he deserves to have a sibling. Shahid had remarked, “When my mom got married for the second time she was pretty clear she didn’t want a second baby because she felt like, you know, it was pretty late, she got married in her early 30s. I kept pestering her saying that it is not fair, I deserve a sibling. And she literally had Ishaan for me. I begged her for two or three years. And finally she gave in and said ‘Alright, I am gonna have one.” (Don't Miss: Shilpa Shetty's Son, Viaan Raj Kundra Performs The Perfect Gymnastic Back Flip, Making Her Proud)
