Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor and his half brother, Ishaan Khatter, appeared on the latest episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’.
The two spoke about everything from their family dynamics to their films and relationships.
During the show, Shahid was asked which one of his ex-girlfriends between Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra would he want to forget.
Shahid replied, “See, my relationship with Kareena was longer and with Priyanka, it was shorter. I think the man that I am today is because of all the experiences that I’ve had. So I wouldn’t want to delete any of the memories. It taught me a lot.”
The actor was also asked as to who he thinks is a more talented actor of the two. “I think the more talented actor is Kareena. I think the more hardworking and committed actor is Priyanka,” Shahid responded.
When asked about his parents’ separation and second marriages, Shahid said, “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 kept pestering her saying that it is not fair, I deserve a sibling. And she literally had Ishaan for me. I begged her for two or three years.”
“I think eventually it is about love, it is about togetherness, it is about forgiving, it’s about learning to move on and it’s about learning to prioritisze the fact that you eventually have to be together,” he added.
Karan then asked Shahid whether there were tensions between him and other actors during the shooting of ‘Padmaavat’ which starred Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh and was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Shahid replied saying, “It’s really a big film and the stakes were very high for everybody. So everybody wanted to have their A-game on. Everybody was doing everything it takes to kind of be in the centre of the limelight. I’m sure everybody felt a bit threatened by each other at some level, it’s natural.”
