Happy birthday @theathiyashetty shine on!!! Lots of love.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) November 5, 2017
Three years ago on her birthday Athiya had signed her first film (Mubarakan, which released after her debut film Hero) but as of now Athiya has not announced her next film yet. Apart from films, Athiya has covered several issues of leading fashion magazines and walked the ramp for prestigious fashion brands.
Talking about the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to a Bollywood family, Athiya earlier told news agency IANS: "We get the first opportunity easily, but we are in a profession where without talent and most importantly without audiences' appreciation, our career cannot last long." She added: "I get a lot of love and appreciation from the elders of the film industry as well as from the media fraternity by default because of the goodwill that my father has earned. People waited for my debut. But at the same time, the biggest disadvantage of a star child is facing criticism of nepotism."
