Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan to debut in ‘Udta Punjab’


Another star brother is going to debut in Bollywood and this time it is Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Kapoor. Shahid’s loving brother Ishaan is making debut in Bollywood not in acting department as in direction. It is learnt that Ishaan is assisting director Abhishek Chaubey in his forthcoming film, ‘Udta Punjab’.

‘Udta Punjab’ stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles. Ishaan is Shahid’s half brother and they share a great rapport.

An insider reveals, “Ishaan is working as an assistant on Abhishek’s next, which also stars Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan. This has been one of the best-kept secrets of the film. Being an assistant is part of the training process for any aspirant who wants to make it big in the film world, and Ishaan is no different.”

Ishaan didn’t ask for help to bag the project. “He did ask Shahid for his permission to meet Abhishek, but Shahid wasn’t involved in getting him the project. Ishaan spoke to Abhishek, who was impressed with his passion and confidence, and took him on board,” says the insider, adding, “It’s a proud moment for Shahid. He’s very close to Ishaan, and he thinks working with him will be fun.”

Not only Shahid’s brother but his half-sister Sanah Kapoor is making acting debut with Vikas Bahl’s next.
