What was Shahid Kapoor’s advice to Ishaan Khatter for ‘Dhadak’?
When you have an elder brother in the same industry that you are new to, their advice, suggestions and feedbacks are of utmost importance. You also feel a sense of security when you have someone to guide you and Ishaan Khatter knows that feeling. Ishaan and his sibling Shahid Kapoor share a very special bond and everyone knows how protective Shahid is of his siblings. Ishaan, who is all set to star in ‘Dhadak‘ recently shared, what his brother had to say about his upcoming film and the advice he gave.
In an interview with DNA Ishaan revealed what was Shahid’s reaction to him starring in ‘Dhadak’. Ishaan said, “He had seen ‘Sairat’ and liked it. He told me it’s a good film to do and that I was at the right age with the right dynamics to do the movie. More than that he felt I would be in good hands with Karan (Johar) and Shashank (Khaitan) empowering the film.”
Being the elder brother, Shahid did have some advice to give to his younger sibling. Ishaan shared, “He advised me to do my research in the language and be well-rehearsed before starting the movie. He wanted me to get that ravani and ease in the language.”
Ishaan further revealed the story behind bagging ‘Dhadak’, “It was when I was on my way to the screening (of Sairat), that Shashank told me he wanted to do the film with me. I was taken by surprise! When I saw Sairat, I completely forgot what Shashank had shared with me”.
He adds, “It’s a beautiful film that pulls you in. I was so involved that it took me a while to shake myself off from the poignant ending and process the information that Shashank wants to make the film with me. But when he told me what he had in mind and that he was setting it in Rajasthan, it made sense. I was excited and wanted to be a part of it.”
The Karan Johar produced film, ‘Dhadak’ is the Hindi adaptation of the 2016 hit Marathi film, ‘Sairat’ which starred Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar in the lead. ‘Dhadak’, which also marks Janhvi Kapoor‘s debut in Bollywood will release on July 20, 2018.
