After making his debut with the film, Ishq Vishq, Shahid Kapoor was instantly given the tag of the 'chocolate boy' of the industry and made every girl Fida over his looks. Time and again, he has proved to be the most talented and celebrated mainstream Bollywood actor. At the time when the debate on nepotism in the industry is roaring high, it is difficult to convince that you are getting work because of your talent and merit, and not just because you are related to someone influential in the industry. Though Ishaan Khatter had entered the industry as Shahid’s brother, with his unconventional debut in the industry and acting skills, he had proved that he is much more than just a star brother and is here to stay!
