It is no secret that Ishaan Khattar, brother of Shahid Kapoor, will soon join Bollywood but what is driving the rumour battalion crazy is the launch pad, which move will be Ishaan’s first?
Earlier, it was rumoured that Khattar will star in Karan Johar’s sequel to 2012 film ‘Student of the Year’. Speculations of him doing the desi version of ‘Fault in our Stars’ opposite another star kid, Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan, were also doing the rounds.
There have been reports of Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter making his acting debut for quite sometime now. If reports are to be believed then the young lad, who was an assistant director on ‘Udta Punjab’ and even had a wee bit role in the film, might be seen as Deepika Padukone’s brother in her next project ‘Floating Gardens’. The ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ actress had surprised her fans when she was spotted in a dressed down avatar at a dhobi ghat in Mumbai while shooting for the English film directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi. And if the reports are true, Deepika would be seen sharing screen space with the real life brothers Shahid and Ishaan, in the movie.
A source from the industry was reported as saying, “The script is being modified to suit the Hindi audience. Karan is yet narrow down on a director.” Both Ishaan and his mother Neelima Azeem have refused to comment on the development as ‘it will be unfair to the makers’. The 21-year-old has worked as an assistant in ‘Udta Punjab’ and was seen alongside his brother in ‘Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi’. Like Shahid, Ishaan has trained under Shiamak Davar for a year.
