Athiya Shetty evasive about film with Nawazuddin
Actor Athiya Shetty, who delivered a hit film Mubarakan last year, surprised everyone when her rumoured next movie was announced. A quirky-comedy opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui! This unlikely pair generated a lot of buzz, but Athiya clarifies that nothing’s concrete has happened yet.
“I can’t talk about this, it’s in its initial stage. It just came out when it wasn’t supposed to. It’s not the right time to talk about it. But I’ve been reading some interesting scripts,” says Athiya, whose latest project, isn’t a film, but a song, Tere Naal Nachna for Nawabzaade in which she features with rapper Badshah. Ask Athiya why she choose to be a part of the song, and she says, “I think Baadshah himself was the reason. I’m a big fan of him and his music. He’s effortless, talented and has been able to create an impact on the new generation through music.”
Actors such as Alia Bhatt and Shradhha Kapoor have turned singer for their films. Does Athiya see herself behind the mic, too? “I am a bathroom singer, and that’s where I will be! You tell me to dance or act, I will do it, but I’m shy of singing in public,” she says.
