Shahid Kapoor's half-brother Ishaan Khattar might share screen space with Deepika Padukone.
Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar is the latest member of the elite star kids group to make his debut in the film industry. At 21, Ishaan is 14 years younger than his famous brother, but the younger star is all set to star in Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s upcoming film, according to a report in Zee News. Ishaan might be getting a glamorous start in his career because rumours are that Deepika Padukone too might be in the film. Photos last week of Deepika look test for the film went viral last week on social media. In these, Deepika looked far from her flawless self and was spotted with Majidi during the day-long shoot, according to a report in Indian Express. It has not been confirmed, however, whether Deepika will take on the project.
The film’s producer Shareen Mantri Kedia said, “He is a superb actor, was amazing in his look test and suits the character Mr Majidi was looking for. Ishaan will play someone deeply connected to the ground and to the city.” The movie will reportedly be shot in Mumbai and Jaipur and revolves around a brother and sister’s tale.
