Ishaan Khatter is all geared up for his debut with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond the Clouds’. The newbie already has chosen the kind of films he wants to be a part of.
“From an actor’s perspective, I would be really happy to work in a film which has relevant content with which I can connect emotionally. I would not like to limit myself to certain kind of cinema or roles. I would be happy to explore as many avenues as possible,” he said.
Looks like it was an empowering experience for the actor to work with Majidi.
“Honestly, for me to make a debut with Majidi sir was not much of a decision to make. It was really a great break. Honey Trehan (casting director) called me in and I had a small conversation with Majidi sir,” the debutant said on the sidelines of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
“I am a huge admirer of Majidi sir’s work. I just want to be a part of good films. It is not a calculated decision. It is just instinctive and it is an honour to work with him… It has given us an empowering experience which will last with us forever,” he added.
He may be making his debut with alternative cinema but Ishaan has already signed a big-ticket Bollywood movie in Dhadak with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Ishaan, who is Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor’s half- brother, will star with veteran actor Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor in the movie, which is an official Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster “Sairat”.
