Bollywood actor brothers Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter have given a modern spin to 1995 blockbuster ‘Karan Arjun’ on social media on Friday.
Shahid Kapoor took to his Instagram handle to share a picture on Instagram where the brothers can be seen smiling at the camera. For caption, he borrowed a line from the hit ‘Karan Arjun’ song, ‘Yeh bandhan to pyar ka bandhan hai’, filmed on Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Raakhi Gulzar. “Ye bhandhan tooooooo….” Shahid wrote as the caption alongside a series of photos of Ishaan and him striking various poses and giving different facial expressions which clicking the selfies.
Ishaan took to the comment section and dropped a funny message. He wrote: “Kaun bandar (Who monkey).”
The reincarnation drama “Karan Arjun” is directed by Rakesh Roshan, and also stars Kajol, Mamta Kulkarni and Amrish Puri.
For the unversed, Shahid and Ishaan are half brothers. Their mom Neelima Azeem recently spoke about her failed marriages, first with Pankaj Kapur, with whom she had Shahid, and then Rajesh Khattar, with whom she had Ishaan.
Speaking about being married to Shahid’s father, Neelima said, “I had this wonderful friend who I got married to, everything was just la-la-la-da-di-da, my parents were wonderful, I had a great crowd around me, toh mujhe ye pata hi nahi tha ke kuch zindagi mein aisa bhi ho sakta hai jisme pav phisal jaye aur hum dup kar ke ghir jaaye (I wasn’t aware that one could slip in life and fall flat). Aur rejection ka koi sawaal hi nahi hai (there was no question of rejection) because everybody used to love me and adore me and follow me around. So it was, in that way, when you’re young and full of beans, it was the first time when I experienced grief, sorrow, rejection, anxiety, pain, and fear of the unknown and a whole lot of insecurity.”
As for her marriage with Rajesh, Neelima said, “The second marriage would have lasted if certain things didn’t happen which were difficult to encounter… It was difficult, it was an impossible feat. I think it would have worked out if there was more control and more logic and sense it in. But it went, it flew out. And it happens in Bombay with all the struggle and with all the pressures, sometimes people succumb to it. But I have the ability to get up and start walking again, and I have these lovely boys in my life, my sons (Shahid and Ishaan), they were a great inspiration for me and a source of so much happiness and encouragement.”
On the work front, while Shahid currently awaits the release of ‘Jersey’, Ishaan will next be seen in ‘Phone Bhoot’.
