I respect Ishaanâ€™s opinion as much as I would my fatherâ€™s: Shahid Kapoor
Mumbai, Jun 15 (IBNS): Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has recently opened up about his relationship with brother Ishaan Khatter and explained how much he respects Khatter's opinion.
Kapoor said this at chat show BFF With Vogue. He was present with Kabir Singh co-actor Kiara Advani.
The Bollywood star shared what he has learnt from his younger brother Ishaan,.
He said, "There’s always more to learn from people who are younger than you. Because they are more with it, so to say and you obviously learn from experience, so obviously I have learnt a lot from my parents but with Ishaan, it’s always a fresh perspective.
I think Ishaan and Mira fall in the same category, they are also kind of the same age so their opinion is kind of invaluable and they’ll always tell you something that you don’t expect, like it will always be something different and that helps you understand and stay connected with that age group."
"He is very talented, I just hope he keeps his head on his shoulders and he focuses on his work. And he has got success young and he has got it early. I have been there so I understand the good and the bad of it. And I will always be there in case I feel he is doing something which he shouldn’t be, because I have learnt from my own mistakes so he has that advantage of having me there. What I learnt from him? I respect his opinion as much as I would my father’s because it’s relevant in different ways ," he added.
Speaking about his influence on Khatter, Kapoor said: "I don’t want him to feel influenced by my opinions because I know that my opinions are important to him. I want him to find his own personality, and be himself. Even when they were promoting ‘Dhadak’ and ‘Beyond the Clouds’, I was very away from it because I very strongly felt that he needs to go and find his own identity. People need to relate to him as him because this whole brother-sister mother-father that’s all very nice for a little bit and after that people want to, either you build a relationship with them as an artist or you don’t. And I always felt he had the potential."
While Khatter has caught the limelight with his presence in Beyond the Clouds and Dhadak, senior actor Kapoor is waiting for Hindi film Kabir Singh to hit the big screens on Jun 21.
