On Suniel Shetty's birthday yesterday, his daughter Athiya Shetty took to Instagram to share a throwback picture and wish him. However, while the sweet picture and its accompanying caption garnered hundreds of 'hearts', it was an unexpected comment on the photograph that left thousands surprised. Popular Canadian rapper Drake - now perhaps better known as the man behind the viral Kiki song - commented on the photograph to hail Suniel Shetty a "legend". The fact that a Canadian rapper would know about the Dhadkan star left many astonished.
Here's the photograph, which shows a young Athiya with her father, Bollywood star Suniel Shetty:
And here's a screenshot of Drake's comment, which has been 'liked' by over 6,000 people:
Athiya Shetty responded to his tribute with a "hahaha" and a heart emoji, and the exchange left a lot of netizens very surprised.
"DRAKE ARE YOU HER COUSIN OR WHAT?" wrote one person in the comments section. "How do you know each other I'm confused," said another. "Oh he's just Hera Pheri fan," a third joked.
