Ishaan Khatter Reveals 'Bhai', Shahid Kapoor's Hilarious Nickname, Adds 'He Changed My Diapers'

Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor is the son of veteran actors, Pankaj Kapur and Neliima Azeem. However, after they had parted ways, Pankaj tied the knot with veteran actress, Supriya Pathak, and they are proud parents of two kids, Sanah and Ruhaan. On the other hand, Neeliima married popular actor, Rajesh Khattar and was blessed with a son, Ishaan Khatter. And the handsome hunk, Shahid never misses the chance to be the bade bhaiya to all of his half-siblings. Now, Ishaan opened up about some adorable incidents from his childhood diaries with Shahid and also revealed his hilarious nickname.

Ishaan Khatter reveals how Shahid Kapoor is the consistent male figure in his life

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Ishaan Khatter was asked about his bond with his darling brother, Shahid Kapoor. He mentioned how his bade bhaiya keeps him grounded. Ishaan also revealed Shahid's hilarious nickname 'Baba Sasha' and mentioned how they used to joke with the latter regarding this. Then, elaborating more on how Shahis is the consistent male figure in his life, Ishaan explained:

“He is the person who grounds me. He is a very rooted, grounded person. And he is very deep. It's a very big part of who he is. We joke about it a lot, I call him 'Baba Sasha', but it's who he is and he is that one person in my life who is like a consistent male figure who has always kept me in check."

Ishaan mentioned how Shahid used to change his diapers

Further, Ishaan mentioned how Shahid was more than a father figure towards him. The Phone Bhoot actor mentioned how his elder sibling was just 15 years old when he was born. However, Shahid also used to change his diapers, and this is how they got connected to each other. Ishaan added:

"I think he has felt very parental towards me also because he changed my diapers. He was nearly 15 years old when I was born and he didn't have an elder sibling. So he was that sibling for me. He is very much the quintessential elder brother in many ways. But he is also young at heart so we have a very unique relationship.”

Ishaan on his relationship with Shahid's kids, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor

Besides being a doting son, a brother and a brother-in-law, Ishaan is also a loving chachu for Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput's kids, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor. Talking about how smart they are, Ishaan shared that while conversing with them, he feels like talking with kids more than their age. Lauding Misha and Zain's IQ, Ishaan explained:

“Of course, who wouldn't? So they have a lot of fun with me, I think. But, they are very smart kids. They are extraordinarily smart. Sometimes I can't believe the conversations I am having with them, specially Misha. They seem too smart for their age. I think what's remarkable for me is not just the IQ but when the kid is emotionally intelligent enough to feel or sense what an adult is feeling and try to correlate…that's just… bizarre to me. I learn a lot from them. I dote on them. I try not to (spoil them) because they have very good parents so I don't feel the pressure…”
