Father Suniel ShettySuniel Shetty has some special advice for his daughter Athiya. He said, "I don't think I can suggest anything to anyone. They are from the young generation and are very well aware. I just said don't be afraid from the Friday. If you would lose on first Friday, then work hard and go for your next. I believe producers suffer a lot, so when it comes to your producer, make sure that you feel for him and work with your heart."
About her father Athiya said, "Papa is not the preachy type who would tell me how to act or how not to act. Salman sir is also not that type of person. They've always told me about life and about the industry, how to conduct myself and how to interact with people. Papa is always the reminder in my life. He has told me, with success there is failure. No matter what, there are both ups and downs in life. And you have to handle yourself with respect, humility and an equal amount of grace."
