Later, when Karan showed them a glimpse of Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor's episode wherein the former said, "Ishaan keeps buzzing around Janhvi", the whole topic of Ishaan and Janhvi dating took a different turn. Ishaan then responds and says, "I am just generally buzzing around and some of it happens to be, sort of" but Shahid cuts in, "Ishaan is buzzing around most people".
While Ishaan Khatter ho-hummed, Shahid was seen pulling his brother's leg, "Janhvi has been buzzing around him a lot". "When my mom got married for the second time she was pretty clear she didn't want a second baby because she felt like, you know, it was pretty late, she got married in her early 30s. I am proud to be identified as Shahid's brother, there is no shame in it". Shahid said it was because he had had pestered his mother for a younger brother. And finally, she gave in and said, "Alright, I am gonna have one'".
Shahid, who played Rajput prince Maharawal Ratan Singh in last year's Rs 200 crore blockbuster Padmaavat, was also asked about his dynamic with other members of the film fraternity. "But what helped me a lot was the fact that he is (a) more experienced (actor) than me". Shahid said that he has bumped into Kareena at occasions. During the rapid fire round, he said Kareena was more talented of the two while Priyanka was the hard worker. Karan said it is necessary to read feedback from viewed and critics to improve on one's performance. Shaid and Ishaan accepted having hots for women that were already "taken", buying lingerie for women and receiving lap dances.
During the promotions of Dhadak, Ishaan Khatter revealed how proud he feels to be identified as Shahid Kapoor's brother. When asked which relationship's memories he would like to delete, Priyanka or Kareena, he said time spent with Kareena was longer and with Priyanka was shorter.
Koffee with Karan season 6 on Sunday hosted siblings Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. But the actor said that those memories made him who he is and would not like to erase them. He also said that out of Ranveer and Saif Ali Khan, the latter is his preferred co-star. "Based on the basis of how much Janhvi talks about you or that he hears about it?" He said that nepotism was a true Bollywood stereotype and called it a "menace". Karan reminded him that he too is a product of it. But this episode of Koffee With Karan has proved that Shahid is also a typical protective elder brother.
