Actor Ishaan Khatter became the latest fodder of jokes and memes on social media after his film Phone Bhoot, also starring Siddhant Chaturvedi and Katrina Kaif, was announced. Netizens trolled him along the lines of nepotism and said that he is getting back-to-back hits in Bollywood because of his connection with Shahid Kapoor, as he is the half-brother of the Kabir Singh actor.
