It's been only four months since she returned from New York, armed with a degree in filmmaking and liberal arts. And already, Suneil Shetty's 18-year-old daughter Athiya has been approached by several filmmakers to play the lead in their films. The good news is parents Suneil and Mana have no reservations about their daughter’s choice of career. Rather, they are said to be going all out to help Athiya chart her future course.
A source close to the family told Mirror, “Athiya always wanted to settle in Mumbai. Her US stint was only meant to learn the ropes of filmmaking. It is always better to understand the nuances behind the scenes before facing the camera. Suneil and Mana are very supportive parents. They have no issues about their daughter's plans. They have always allowed her to make her own decisions.”
The source added, “Suneil and Mana want the best for their daughter. They will leave no stone unturned in guiding her forward.”
The latest being Athiya is looking to sign up with Reshma Shetty, business manager of Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, for professional help in her film career.
