Athiya Shetty eva­sive about film with Nawazud­din

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT - Rishabh Suri ■ rishabh.suri@htlive.com

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.
