Mumbai, 18 November (IANS) In 2017, Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s masterful performance in Beyond the Clouds caught the attention of cine lovers. Then the next project Dhadak was below expectations. Recently he was also seen in Mira Nair’s web series A Suitable Boy.
Pankaj Kapoor’s younger son and Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother managed to dodge nepotism due to his skillful acting and dancing skills. Ishan told IANS, “I am lucky to get every opportunity that I have.” But I think I started working at the right age. Sometimes we get some roles because of age. I think working with Majid Sir and Meera Di was like that. If I started working after 5 years, I could have missed such an opportunity. However, this is not in our hands, but in the hands of destiny. Whatever I have done, put my everything in it.
He further added, I know that I am lucky, because many years of artists are waiting to work with such prestigious 2 filmmakers. I can only promise that I will not let anyone down due to my hard work.
In Nair’s series, Ishaan performed brilliantly in an unconventional pairing with veteran actor Tabu.
He further added, I have played characters who are versatile, very different from Aamir (Beyond the Clouds), Madhu (Dhadak). Similarly Blackie (empty yellow) is very different from Maan Kapoor (A Suitable Boy). I have to keep my level high which always matches the expectation of the fans. I think that is a blessing and a privilege compared to the fans.
