Earlier, the Dhadak actor was trolled for not wearing a helmet while riding a bike. Reacting to the trolls, he took to his Twitter to write, “Thanks for looking out. It was a phone call, yes. Also, not very safe for your photographers to chase and click pictures while on a motorbike”.

Ishaan was seen in a pair of grey shorts and a basic black tee while riding a bike. The young actor has been following a strict workout schedule and hence he opted to ride a bike instead of taking cars to reach his destinations. Sara Ali Khan and her brother Ibrahim Ali Khan was also seen riding bikes a few days ago outside their residence.

Ishaan’s last film Dhadak, with Janhvi Kapoor, led to speculations that the actors are dating. Both the actors have always denied the same whenever asked during interviews.

Ishaan’s performance in his debut film Beyond The Clouds was applauded by many. Fans are now eagerly waiting to see the actor ace it on the silver screen once again with his astounding performance. Janhvi, on the other hand, will next be seen in Gunjan Saxena biopic which is based on the life of first female Indian Air Force combat pilot and first female Shaurya Chakra recipient who played a significant role in 1999 Kargil War.
