Ishaan’s recent release, Khaali Peeli was in the news for its controversial song that was previously titled Beyonce Sharma Jayegi, with lyrics that seemed to have racist undertones. Ishaan had said that the song and its lyrics had been taken out of context. The makers of the song later altered the song title and its lyrics to clear the misunderstanding.
Coming from a Bollywood background, Ishaan was often at the centre of nepotism debates, especially when he was chosen as the lead for Dhadak, opposite Jhanvi Kapoor. The actor’s father came to his defence and pointed out that he was only chosen for the role for his suitability to match the character, and was only being targeted for being Shahid Kapoor’s brother, rather than for his acting skills.
