When it comes to Bollywood Actor Sunil Shetty’s daughter: Athiya Shetty, she makes more noise for her rumored relationship with cricketer KL Rahul than her Bollywood work. With the release date of Motichoor Chaknachoor just round the corner, everybody’s focus is on Ms. Shetty, who’s pairing up with the much-talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui in this flick. To date Athiya has done only 4 films including this one. And in one film she did a cameo.
But do you know Athiya had refused this project not once but twice? Read below for more details.
Athiya Was Doubtful About Working With An Incredible Actor Like Nawazuddin
When she was asked the reason behind this decision of hers, Athiya Said,
“I was really very nervous working with Nawaz. I said no twice because I was so nervous to be opposite with him and I honestly didn’t know how I would be.”
Athiya Is Carrying A Bag Full Of Praises For Nawaz
But as soon as Athiya dressed for the role, there were no doubts. She is in all praises for Nawaz now.
“Nawaz is such an incredible actor. Thanks, I got a chance to work with him. I think I have evolved so much because with him I learned less is more. You don’t have to be exaggerated in your performance to perform comedy. You just have to be true to your character and with yourself.”
On Her Relationship With KL Rahul
In a media interaction some time back, Athiya made it clear that she is not at all interested in discussing her personal life in the public domain. Indian cricketer repeats Athiya’s words. He has been silent on the matter though an Instagram post of his, wishing Athiya on her 27th birthday, took social media by storm.
