Release of Ishaan Khatter debut movie with Iranian director called Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clous is on the radar. During a session with the media, Ishaan has said that his brother Shahid is like a father figure to him who has inspired him in every corner of life. Regarding competition with his brother and Udta Punjab actor Shahid Kapoor, Ishaan has said “Shahid is a paternal figure to me. He is almost like a teacher. All my life I have learnt so much by watching him. I can’t possibly consider him as a competition to me and in fact, I would say we are a team.”
During the trailer launch of Beyond the Clouds by Majidi, Ishaan has been present along with lead actress of the movie named Malavika Mohanan and ace music director A.R Rahman. According to Ishaan, “Beyond The Clouds is close to his “dream debut”. Of course, every aspiring actor has an image of a dream debut. For me, working with him (Majidi) is a special and learning experience. I look upto him.”
Release of Beyond the Clouds is expected in India on 20th April. On asking whether he has consulted his brother Shahid before signing the movie Beyond the Cloud, he has said “I live with my mother, so of course, I talk to her about the film offer and then the person whom I shared the news with was none other than my brother.”
The young actor has said further “I felt very strongly about the film. He just told me to follow my heart. As you all know that I am also working with Karan Johar in my upcoming film; during that time, we were supposed to start the shooting of that film; so I went to Karan and talked about Majid sir’s film…..Karan was gracious enough to give me time so that I could finish this film, and then start the other one. So yes, these are the three people I had spoken to after I got the offer of the film”
Next, Ishaan will be seen in Dhadak opposite Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor. It is expected to be Bollywood debut for both the actors.
