While Karan Johar’s celebrity chat show, Koffee With Karan has seen many siblings on the Koffee couch including Janhvi Kapoor-Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja-Rhea Kapoor-Harshvardhan Kapoor amongst others, Shahid Kapoor appeared on its 13th episode with his younger half-sibling, Ishaan Khatter and there were some interesting revelations made about their personal and professional lives. We have often seen how Shahid has aced his roles as a husband, as a father and as a son! But this episode of Koffee With Karan has proved that Shahid is also a typical protective elder brother.

It was Ishaan’s debut on Koffee With Karan and the first question he faced on the show was, "Are you dating Janhvi Kapoor?" While he was tongue-tied to answer the question, he ended up saying a “No”. Later, when Karan showed them a glimpse of Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor’s episode wherein the former said, "Ishaan keeps buzzing around Janhvi", the whole topic of Ishaan and Janhvi dating took a different turn.
While Ishaan clarified by saying, "No we're not dating. We hangout, go to the gym, eat food, watch movies, and listen to South Indian music together.", Shahid took a dig on Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor. As soon as the clip ended, Shahid said, "I don't know how often Arjun is around Janhvi to know how much Ishaan is buzzing around her. I wonder. Because I mean, are they around each other a lot?"
Shahid Kapoor went on to say, "For him (Arjun) to have so much detail into your buzzing. Or is he assuming that? Based on the basis of how much Janhvi talks about you or that he hears about it?" Ishaan then responded, "I am just generally buzzing around and some of it happens to be, sort of." To which, Shahid was quick to interrupt, "Ishaan is buzzing around most people. So, it's not that as if, it's, you know, Janhvi is not special like that. Okay? She should know this. He buzzes around a lot of people. He’s a buzy guy." Shahid being a doting brother also said to Ishaan to do or say whatever he wants to, and he will always have his back.
At the beginning of the episode when Shahid and Ishaan entered, they talked about how it felt being together on the show for the first time. Shahid went on to add how proud he is of Ishaan and said, “It’s really special. I feel very fortunate and very blessed and I’m very, very proud of him. It feels very surreal.” To which, Ishaan replied, “He’s not felt even mildly this emotional before any of my film screenings.” (Also Read: Ishaan Khatter Behaves Like A School Going Kid, Acts Crazy Over His Delicious Birthday Cake)
Speaking about Ishaan in an interview to Hindustan Times, Janhvi had said, “Till now, he is the only person I have worked with, and it was easy to team up with him because I think we get along really well. Also, as an actor, I am in awe of him and the way he approaches his scenes. Plus, he has great energy (as an actor), and it is probably because he is new too. But what helped me a lot was the fact that he is (a) more experienced (actor) than me.”
During the promotions of Dhadak, Ishaan Khatter revealed how proud he feels to be identified as Shahid Kapoor’s brother. He said, "I have no intention to make a name for myself and to separate my identity from my brother's name. I am proud to be identified as Shahid's brother, there is no shame in it."
Don’t you think that Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor are perfect examples of big brothers who are always there for their younger ones? (Also Read: Neelima Azim Talks About Being A Single Mother And How Big Bro Shahid Guided Little Brother Ishaan)
