Ishaan Khatter has been breaking and mending hearts all over the world. Well it’s impossible not to with that charming look of his. But there is more to Ishaan than a creamy complexion, amazing hair and above all a smile that gives a familiar tug of joy to our hearts. He has been rising in the film industry like a dark horse. Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother needs no separate introduction but not because he is Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother. As this talented young boy turned 23 today (1st November, 2018), he has already received a lot of critical acclaim.

His acting ability and his amazing on-screen performances have thrown us off our seats. His debut was way back in 2005 in the movie Vaah! Life ho toh aisi! Where he was seen as a child. Although he has starred in a few films since, we know he is a powerhouse of talent that must be reckoned with.
Ishaan also happened to make a short cameo appearance in Udta Punjab which was the story of drug abuse by the youth of Punjab. He was also the assistant director for another movie called Half Widow. It was right after this that he came in the limelight and it feels like he never left it. He delivered commendable performances in movies that perhaps didn’t do so well commercially but were highly appreciated for the quality of acting.
Before Dhadak he was already a famous international star with Majid Majidi’s Beyond the clouds that was released in 2017. This was his first movie as an adult debutante where he plays the role of a drug dealer in and street hustler in Mumbai who happens to have a sister played by Malavika Mohanan. The story revolves around the relationship shared by these two in particular and all kinds of relationships in general. The movie was highly praised especially for the performances delivered by the leads and its brilliant cinematography.
Beyond the clouds was of course followed by Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak which was released earlier this year. It is a tragic romantic film which was jointly produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Hiroo Yash Johar. It stars Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor in lead roles and happens to be the remake of a Marathi film called Sairat. This movie also happened to mark the debut of Janhvi Kapoor. Although it was criticized for being a poor remake of the original Khatter’s performance like always managed to steal our hearts. And we absolutely cannot keep calm for his next movie.
Nepotism or not, he definitely managed to catch everyone in the film industry’s fancy. He has a huge fan base especially on social media like Instagram (yes, go stalk him right away!) Besides the fact that he is an amazing actor who manages to look like a snack every time he is seen on screen, he dances like nobody’s watching and he is incredibly good at that. He is totally a family person and his posts bear testimony to that. He is a fitness freak like his brother and loves cats and dogs. Is he even for real? Ladies, here is a man better than all your fantasies combined. Good luck !
