Daughter of Sunil Shetty, who made her first debut in 2015, Salman Khan Production movie “Hero”, Athiya Shetty, will go to share the screen in her next with producer-actor Anil Kapoor. The young actress, Athiya says, it’s very important to fear failure in the career.
“It would be naive if I said that I don’t fear failure. But it is very important. My father (actor Suniel Shetty) has always told me… even before entering the industry. He said that ‘I know you will be able to handle success, but will you be able to handle failure? And you have to do it with dignity. You have to be humble at that time as well’,“Athiya said.
Asked if there is any struggle for star children, Athiya said: “I think the struggle is different. We get a platform. Star children have that reach, where you get the opportunity to meet people, but that doesn’t mean that we get it easy because once you get a launch, it’s up to you on what you do about it.”
“Once you enter (the industry), you have to kind of prove your worth and talent,” she added
Celebrity lad, Athiya is also the brand ambassador for the Indian franchise of Maybelline New York and even featured high profile magazine covers like, Cosmopolitan, Verve, Harper’s Bazar and much more. The 23-year-old actress is recently linked up to Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor.
“No. It’s part and parcel of the industry. With good comes bad. I think it’s just a part of the industry, so I am aware of the things that come about. So, yes, it’s okay. At the end of the day, it’s your performance that will speak and your hard work will always win,” she said.
The actress will next be seen in ‘Mubarakan’, helmed by Anees Bazmee.
