I have to prove my­self as an ac­tor: Athiya

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - PTI

t’s a cake-walk for star kids to en­ter Bol­ly­wood, which is some­thing ac­tor Su­niel Shetty’s daugh­ter ac­tor Athiya Shetty (right) agrees with. How­ever, af­ter their de­but, they have to prove them­selves, says Athiya as she looks to firm up her place in Bol­ly­wood by do­ing qual­ity films.

The 24-year-old says that her fo­cus at this point is to prove her act­ing prow­ess in the com­pet­i­tive world of Hindi cinema. “I need to prove my­self as an ac­tor. As kids from film fam­ily, we’ve a plat­form but what we do af­ter our first film de­pends on us, and the jour­ney is im­por­tant.”

Athiya who made her de­but last year op­po­site ac­tor Sooraj Pan­choli in ac­tor-pro­ducer Sal­man Khan’s home pro­duc­tion Hero, adds, “I want to work with amaz­ing di­rec­tors and on good scripts. It’d be dif­fi­cult to say what I want to do next. It’s about keep learn­ing.”

Stat­ing that she is conscious about choos­ing films, the ac­tor says, “It’s im­por­tant as we ded­i­cate one or two years to a film so you should be ex­cited and proud of it. One should feel good while go­ing to work daily.” Athiya will be seen in film­maker Anees Bazmee’s next.
