Shahid likes to use 'THE EXPERIENCE CARD a lot: Ishaan Khattar

Shahid's younger brother Ishaan Khattar is all set to make his debut in Majid Majidi's 'Beyond The Clouds'. Apart from being Shahid's brother, he has also raised the bar with the trailer of the film. However, the film has already won accolades at international film festivals but, will release in India on this Friday. As soon as the actor was announced in Karan Johar's "Dhadak" opposite Janhvi Kapoor people have started comparing his acting skills to his dancing skills with Shahid Kapoor.

Talking to a leading daily about his bond with Shahid and comparisons made with him...he said, "He is like a sage sometimes. He has a philosophical side to him that a lot of people are not exposed to, where he says things like, 'Beta, come let me tell you about life'. So, he imparts a lot of wisdom and shares his experience. Mostly, it's me listening, while sometimes he is interested in listening to my perspective on things, too. One of the most significant things my brother told me was to always be honest, as that will translate on camera. He says, 'Chase honesty and authenticity. Be sincere at the moment. Try and find an honest moment rather than achieving a certain kind of effect'. Actors can become technically sound, but honestly always translates even if you are not doing a lot of things on camera."

When asked whether Shahid is a dominating elder sibling, Ishaan said that the Haider actors like to use the experience card a lot. "He likes to use the experience card a lot. His closing line is 'Vadda kaun?' when he doesn't win an argument (laughs!). However, he is not overly dominating. We come from a very liberal family. He has strong opinions, but he doesn't always share them, unless I am seeking his views. I have watched his films repeatedly and have learnt a lot by observing him. Since I am close to him, I know where a certain emotion is coming from."

He further said, that he strongly believes in the work and would never like to compare him with Shahid. "I strongly believe that your work speaks for itself. I would never compare myself to him. If others do, they have a right to their opinion and freedom of choice. It will be unfair to pit me against my brother as he is somebody with 15 years of experience. There is no way I can perceive him as competition, as he is family. I don't find any sense in these comparisons," said Ishaan.
