Not just the profession of acting, brothers Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter have something else in common as well – their dancing talent. So, who is a better dancer? “I can’t make [these comparisons] myself. I have learnt so much from bhai just by being around him that I just can’t do that,” says Shahid’s half-brother, Ishaan.

In fact, the Dhadak actor recalls “often accompanying Shahid for rehearsals, song shoots, and various film events” as a young boy. “Many times, I would end up learning his steps. He also used to teach me certain techniques. At that time, I wasn’t as trained as I am now,” says Ishaan, adding that Shahid is “more technically adept and trained” than he.

“Honestly, I don’t think I am a better dancer than bhai. We also share our music with each other. But he doesn’t listen [much] to my music. I think I am little more liberal and accepting (laughs),” he says, adding that he shares more about films with their mum (Neelima Azeem) than with Shahid.

“Bhai is busy working so I have not watched too many films with him in recent times. But it’s one of the things we bond over besides dancing, family and philosophy. But it means a great deal to me to make him proud,” he says.
