Khatter had made his Bollywood debut in the Marathi blockbuster, Sairat’s remake title Dhadak. He was later signed for Vishal Bhardwaj’s next project which is going to be the adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children. But, the latest update is that the actor has moved out of the project.
Reportedly, Ishaan Khattar had rejected filmmaker Mira Nair’s adaption of the acclaimed novel by Vikram Seth - The Suitable Boy, to be a part of Bhardwaj’s project. According to a report in the Mumbai Mirror, the actor has moved out citing creative differences.
