Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya all set for Bollywood debut
Make way for yet another star-kid in the glittering B-town. Bollywood muscleman Suniel Shetty’s darling daughter Athiya is all set to make her entry on the big screen.
Athiya – fresh out of the New York Film Academy is making heads turn with her traffic-stopper looks and the buzz is that it is only a matter of time before she makes her Bollywood debut. If the latest buzz is to be believed she is making her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
"Athiya has suddenly become visible all over the swish circuit. It should be at least a year or so before she hits the screen, but it seems only a matter of time," a regular party-hopper in Mumbai said.
The buzz about Athiya gearing up for a Bollywood debut has also gained ground because dad Suniel was spotted having a chat with Ranbir Kapoor a few days ago. However, the source underplayed the meeting between Suniel and Ranbir and said: "Suniel was shooting at the same place where Ranbir happened to be doing some promotional activity for Barfee. So he dropped in to have a casual chat."
"Ranbir is the best bet for a debut for any new girl in Bollywood. The rumour is that Athiya could be making her debut opposite the actor, once he is through with his current lot of assignments at hand. A big announcement seems on the anvil," a source said.
Athiya recently returned from the US after finishing a course in filmmaking and liberal arts at the New York Film Academy. Two years ago, Suniel and his wife Mana had visited the US to choose the best university for their daughter's admission. Reported to be strict parents, the Shettys were extremely watchful about their daughter's education. Now that she is back, they are said to be planning Athiya's Bollywood career. Lately, she has been spotted at several film parties along with her parents.
