We all know that Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are 'half-siblings', yet they share a relationship like real brothers. After all, Shahid had always wished for having a brother and he had influenced his mother, Neliima Azeem to have another baby so that he can have a brother. The adorable sibling duo shares a loving bond and never fails to shower love on each other.
On November 1, 2020, Ishaan turned a year older and his brother, Shahid penned a loving wish for him. The actor took to his Instagram handle and shared a goofy picture with him.

In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Ishaan had opened up on being referred to as Shahid's brother. He had said, "I am very proud of the fact that I am his brother." Ishaan had further clarified that he doesn't intend to ride on his brother's fame. The 24-year-old actor had stated, "I don't intend to ride on his fame or anything of the sort. If somebody recognises me as his brother, I don't have an ego about it. That's not something that would ever bother me. But I am very aware of the fact that I started getting recognised as his brother when I was 15. Before that, not many people knew too much about me. I started being seen in one-two places with him, then how the media is — there was curiosity about a boy who's coming into a certain age."
Ishaan further revealed that he will always be Shahid's cheerleader, "I've just begun. Why should it take away from my talent? He started off 14 years before me, made such a beautiful place and mark for himself. I will always be his cheerleader, he's my blood, brother, family. For me, I don't see any reason to try and create a separate sort of identity for myself. That will happen on its own."
