Of late, talks have been rife that Shahid Kapoor’s brother, Ishaan Khattar, is set to make his Bollywood debut. In fact, it was reported last month that Ishaan might hit the silver screen alongside Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan, in a Karan Johar film. Although Shahid admits that his brother has been receiving film offers, he reveals that nothing has been finalised about his Bollywood debut yet.

“People see Ishaan accompany me to various occasions. Plus, they know that he is a good dancer and a good-looking boy. He is very talented. So, yes, film opportunities are coming his way. But, right now, he is just 19, so I don’t know... But he is old enough to take his own decisions,” says Shahid.

Revealing that Ishaan gives him advice “a lot of times,” Shahid adds that his younger brother also likes to “discuss things” with him. “Whenever he says yes to a film, we will tell the world about it. Right now, offers are coming in, and he is gauging whether he is ready. And, when he feels he likes something, he will talk to me about it. If I feel like he should do that particular film, I will tell him, ‘Kar le (do it)’. And if I don’t feel that way, I will tell him, ‘Beta, ruk jaa ek-do saal (Wait for a year or two)’. If he says, ‘Okay bro, since you are experienced, I will listen to you’, it’s great. But if he tells me, ‘Bro, I am going to do the film anyway,’ then I will say, ‘Okay, best of luck,’ (smiles),” says Shahid.
