Star kids are all over the news these days as they gear up to make there much awaited debuts in the world of Bollywood. One such young talent is none other than Suniel Shetty's daughter, Athiya Shetty. The 22 year old will be seen in Nikhil Advani's, Hero opposite another debutant, Sooraj Pancholi.
Suniel Shetty, who is happy with his daughter's career decision, recently shared with Midday the advice he has for his little girl. "I don't have to tell her anything. I was worried because Athiya was always watching me. By telling them they don't learn but by watching us they do. In 26 years, I don't know what I have earned but there is lot of goodwill and blessing that I have got. I have conducted myself that way and I hope Athiya will do the same," the Hera Pheri star said.
"She did plays in her school. I am glad she asked me if I would be happy with her joining films. I said, 'I am in this industry and it is a beautiful industry. It is the most beautiful and safe place for girls. If they want to conduct themselves right, then nobody can trouble them,'' he further added.
He pointed out that during his acting debut there was no one to guide him. However, he's happy that Athiya's being backed by two superstars who will guide her as she enters the industry, father Suniel Shetty and Salman Khan who is launching her. "I don't regret my time. I was strong. I stood on my own... fell down. I did death defying stunts. I am happy that I am there for my children to support them. Athiya has been out there, so she doesn't know much about the real world. I am happy we are there to protect, guide them and see that they don't end up messing things for themselves," the Border star said.
He further adds that Athiya is extremely hard-working and would insist on redoing a scene if she felt that she wasn't happy with how it turned out. ''She would message or call Nikhil at the night, saying I am not happy with the way I did a scene. So he used to ask her to do one more take of the scene in morning. These were the only things that she told me. She never said, 'I am tired'," he said.
With that attitude, we are certain that Athiya will go a long way.
