Athiya parents say about her entry into the films.They say that it was her decision to act in the films. I just told her, “See that you conduct yourself well, let no Friday scare you and work hard.”
“Why would we do that? Bollywood is a beautiful, exciting place to be. Every day you meet new people. Yes, many told me that the industry is not an easy place for girls and daughters in particular. And I would tell them the industry is just a small part of this world. I don’t think it would be a difficult place for someone coming from a secure background” said sunil. “My daughter is an extremely confident girl who knows what is right and what is wrong. Importantly, she is not out to emulate anybody” said mania.
