Shahid Kapoor: I respect Ishaan's opinion as much as I would my father's
Critic's favourite and the eternal hearththob, Shahid Kapoor appeared with his BFF Kiara Advani, on the Colors Infinity chat show 'BFFs with Vogue'
In a candid conversation, Shahid Kapoor shared what he has learnt from his younger brother Ishaan, who has already won a million hearts with his recent performances. Host Neha Dhupia asked, 'I know on most places people would ask what he (Ishaan) learns from you, we want to know the reverse. What does someone like you, you have been in the business long enough. What do you learn from Ishaan because he is already making waves'
To this Shahid Kapoor said, "There's always more to learn from people who are younger than you. Because they are more with it, so to say and you obviously learn from experience, so obviously I have learnt a lot from my parents but with Ishaan, it's always a fresh perspective. I think Ishaan and Mira fall in the same category, they are also kind of the same age so their opinion is kind of invaluable and they'll always tell you something that you don't expect like it will always be something different and that helps you understand and stay connected with that age group."

Further he added, "Ishaan and me talk like friends, there is no younger brother elder brother when it comes to work. We talk about movies, he is very obsessive about his analysis of my performances so sometimes I am scared to ask him what he thought of my performance and I am limited in how much I tell him about his, because he is new and I don't want to be that overbearing brother who has too much of an opinion. I don't want him to feel influenced by my opinions because I know that my opinions are important to him. I want him to find his own personality, and be himself. Even when they were promoting 'Dhadak' and 'Beyond the Clouds', I was very away from it because I very strongly felt that he needs to go and find his own identity. People need to relate to him as him because this whole brother-sister mother-father that's all very nice for a little bit and after that people want to, either you build a relationship with them as an artist or you don't. And I always felt he had the potential."
Shahid went to add, "He is very talented, I just hope he keeps his head on his shoulders and he focuses on his work. And he has got success young and he has got it early. I have been there so I understand the good and the bad of it. And I will always be there in case I feel he is doing something which he shouldn't be, because I have learnt from my own mistakes so he has that advantage of having me there. What I learnt from him? I respect his opinion as much as I would my father's because it's relevant in different ways."
