It looks like Shahid Kapoor‘s brother, Ishaan, is following in the actor’s footsteps! Ishaan has been training under Shiamak Davar as part of his professional One Year Intensive Dance Certification Program (OYP), and at their graduation show held recently, he received a special award. This award was for the ‘Most Promising Student’, which, coincidentally, Shahid received years ago when he was a part of the same program. Shahid, too, went along for the graduation show to cheer on his brother and relive some of his dancing days.
In fact, it turns out that Shahid got a bit emotional while there. The actor said:
“Wow, I’m extremely emotional right now. It reminded me of the years I’ve been with Shiamak. I had tears in my eyes throughout the show, I missed my dancing days with Shiamak. Ishaan danced in the show. They are just so lucky to learn from Shiamak. I’ve seen Ishaan growing and I’ve seen him transform, evolve and change not only in dance but also body and attitude. With Shiamak, it’s not only about dance but the spirit. I feel proud and humbled at the same time.”
Do you think Ishaan will be following in Shahid’s footsteps? He’s already got the dancing part down, so you never know whether Bollywood will be on the cards some time soon! Shiamak himself says that he sees some similarities between the two:
“They both have such similar energies; I can see the spark in Ishaan already. From the time the program started he has worked extremely hard and his performance in the show was proved it.”
And as a nice surprise, Shiamak even presented Shahid with an extra special award for most promising student ever. As you can see, theirs is a bond that still continues till this day.
