Alia Bhatt’s Hard Work Inspires Athiya Shetty

Recently, Athiya Shetty had some nice things to say about her contemporary Alia Bhatt. In a recent interview with news agency PTI, the newcomer said Alia and Anushka Sharma are her “inspirations”, that she looks up to them and she appreciates the wise choices they have made in films.

“Alia is an inspiration. She is my age but she has achieved so much in such a short span of time. She is so hard working. I think everybody has their own journey,” she said.

The daughter of yesteryear superstar Suniel Shetty, Athiya is one of the many star kids trying to find a place in Bollywood. The 24 year old made her acting debut in ‘Hero’ along side Sooraj Pancholi. The film failed to impress at the box office.

In a world full of rivalry and cold-wars among Bollywood actresses, Athiya’s words of appreciation for Alia are a welcome change. It is so refreshing to see her recognize Alia’s hard work and laud her success.

It is not just Alia who has been showered with praises by Athiya. Multiple award winning actress Anushka Sharma seems to have a huge fan in the Shetty girl. Anushka’s career growth as an actor and producer has impressed Athiya.

“I’ve looked up to Anushka Sharma, she has inspired me, especially how she has taken her career so well. She is producing films at a young age, she is making the films she wants to, producing the ones she believes in,” said Athiya.

‘Phillauri’, Anushka’s second film as producer, is all set to release next month. Perhaps, Athiya sees herself producing films a couple of years down the line too?

For now, the promising young actress is keeping herself busy shooting for her upcoming film ‘Mubarakan’, where she stars alongside Arjun Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz. The film is directed by Anees Bazmee and will release mid-year on July 28th.
