The Filmfare Awards 2019 took place on March 23, 2019, and the night was dedicated to the best of the best in the world of Hindi cinema and it turned out to be a night to remember for all Bollywood lovers. Amongst the list of Filmfare Awards from different categories, two names had to be mentioned who bagged the award for the best debut actors for their exemplary and outstanding performances. We are talking about debutant, Ishaan Khatter and debutante, Sara Ali Khan, as the year 2019 was all about them! Sara for Kedarnath and Ishaan for Beyond The Clouds, they both have indeed been a great addition to the film fraternity and deserved to take the black lady home. Don’t you agree?
Ishaan Khatter has not only made the nation proud with his exceptional performances, but also the Kapoor clan is all-praises for the debutant! Ishaan’s brother, Shahid Kapoor and sister-in-law, Mira Rajput Kapoor took to their Instagram handles and posted a congratulatory note for the Beyond The Clouds star. While Shahid shared a still from the film, Beyond The Clouds and tagged Ishaan followed by a clap emoji, Ishaan’s ‘bhabhidoll’, Mira posted a photo of Ishaan holding the black lady. Mira wrote, “Congratulations @ishaankhatter You make us so proud!” atop it.
Ishaan Khatter too, posted a picture of him proudly holding the black lady, and captioned it as, “Filmfare for Beyond the Clouds, an irreplaceable chapter of my life. Agha Majidi and @shareenmantri , this one’s for you.. and for my bhaijaan @shahidkapoor whose presence in my life I can’t define in words.” (Also Read: Ranveer Singh Goes Down On Knees For Wife, Deepika Padukone At 64th Filmfare Awards, Video Inside)
Ishaan Khatter and Mira Rajput Kapoor have proved to be one of the cutest bhabhi-devar duos of B-town, with their goofy pictures and the even more adorable captions that goes with it. Sometime back, Ishaan indulged in an impromptu 'Ask Me Anything’ interaction with Insta-fans, and his ‘bhabhidoll’, Mira Rajput Kapoor too, posted a question for him. Mira asked her devar, Ishaan, “When are you getting a haircut?” to which Ishaan retorted, “Now, no chance I’ll get one. @mira.kapoor”.
While Mira Rajput Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are the cutest bhabhi-devar duos of B-town, Shahid Kapoor too, is in awe of his baby brother. On Koffee With Karan season 6, Shahid revealed how it took him to convince his mother, Neliima Azeem to have another child. Sharing the instance, Shahid revealed, “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.”
It must be mentioned here that Shahid Kapoor is the son of Neliima Azeem and her first husband, Pankaj Kapur while Ishaan Khatter is the son of Neliima and her second husband, Rajesh Khatter, but in 2001, they too parted ways. Speaking of how wonderfully, her two boys, Shahid and Ishaan have grown up and the struggles she had to face being a single mother, Neliima got candid in a Pinkvilla interview sometime back.
Neliima Azeem had stated, “My stress was over. I was a single mother and till today he is taking care of Ishaan and me in every way. He is like 'hats off'! Shahid has worked very hard and has had a very challenging journey and the thing about both my boys is that they are very good sons, very honest and clean and extremely vulnerable. Ishaan is more like joyous and has his own energy. All I can say is, both of them have been sparkling in their own times. Ishaan has been very fortunate that he started with Majid Majidi and then Dharma, with Shashank and Karan with him so, Mashallah, he had a quicker and faster journey and I suppose the younger ones do have it that way while the elder ones do create a little more hard work for themselves. That's the way it’s always been. But both of them are wonderful.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Expresses Her Love For Ranbir Kapoor In The Most Adorable Way At Filmfare 2019)
