In his 25-year-long ca­reer, ac­tor Su­niel Shetty has been a part of films with var­i­ous gen­res but the ac­tor still feels that wrong choices messed up his ca­reer. How­ever, Su­niel says that he is glad that his daugh­ter Athiya Shetty who made her film de­but with Hero (2015) has been wise while se­lect­ing films.

“Athiya has been very pa­tient and she learnt from my mis­takes. Athiya has not jumped on any project. She will be do­ing her next film be­cause it is an amaz­ing script and a very en­ter­tain­ing film,” says Su­niel. The ac­tor, who is cur­rently seen host­ing an ad­ven­ture re­al­ity show on tele­vi­sion, says he has always ad­vised his daugh­ter to reach out to the masses. “I tell her that they will sup­port you,” he says.

The ac­tor who is ready for his come­back on sil­ver screen af­ter three years says that he will need the sup­port of the younger ac­tors.“I need the shoul­ders of the young lot to move ahead in my ca­reer. With­out them, it is go­ing to be dif­fi­cult to do things on my own. I can’t do the song and dance any­more. I refuse to colour my hair, un­less it’s a pro­gres­sive char­ac­ter,” says Su­niel.

The 55-year-old says that he has always been open to work­ing with young and new tal­ent. “Most of the films have had new di­rec­tors. I give new­com­ers a chance. It is the younger lot I be­lieve in,” says the ac­tor.
