Ishaan Khatter is featuring in Oscar-nominated filmmaker Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond The Clouds’ and the film has released today. Sibling Shahid Kapoor along with wife Mira Rajput were present at the screening of Ishaan Khatter’s movie and showed their support.

When asked about whether he will be working with brother Shahid Kapoor, the young actor said to a leading daily, “Pray for it, we will do it. Everyone’s saying it, so there must be a reason why they want to see us together. I’ll be on cloud nine if I get that kind of opportunity, but we shouldn’t be doing it just because people want us to. It has to be the right kind of a film and have equal opportunity for both of us.”

He also said, “There’s a responsibility that you have, especially when the audience expects something like that. More than anything, both of us are so passionate about cinema that we would want it to be the best film that it can ever be. If I have the opportunity and I’m so lucky to be able to work with my brother in a movie, I’ll be super happy. But it’s not something I’m pointedly working towards.”


Ishaan Khatter will also feature in ‘Dhadak’, a film by Karan Johar and Shashank Khaitan. ‘Dhadak’ also stars Janhvi Kapoor, and is a remake of the super hit Marathi film ‘Sairat’. The casting of the two new stars has created a lot of buzz around and has got a lot of positive response.
