A while ago, when Suniel Shetty walked into an event accompanied by Athiya, apparently there was an immediate beeline of filmmakers wanting to sign the young lady for their films. Looks like Sajid Nadiadwala has beaten everyone else in the race and signed Miss Shetty.
Our source says, "Athiya apparently always wanted to make a career in Bollywood and even went to the New York Film Academy for a course in filmmaking. Both Suniel and Mana are said to be extremely supportive of their little daughter in her decision to pursue her career as an actress."
Buzz is that Tiger Shroff has got a leading lady in Athiya Shetty for his debut film 'Heropanti'.
On his part, Suniel Shetty refused to comment on our story and instead asked us to get in touch with his manager, who remained unavailable. However, the director of Heropanti, Sabbir Khan says, "I’m yet to see the audition tapes, as I was out of town."
Incidentally, Suniel Shetty had worked with Sajid in Waqt Hamara Hai (1993), when the filmmaker was starting his career as a producer.
Another bit of news gathered is that Athiya, who studied in a film school in the US, was being considered for a lead role in a film by Saif’s production house. However, no official confirmations are available because the casting process is still under way.
