Salman Khan’s sister Alvira discovered Athiya Shetty
Athiya Shetty has for a long while been itching to turn into a performing artist. To such an extent that as a kid, she moved before the mirror to numbers from Tezaab (1988), particularly the melody, ‘Ek do teen‘. In any case, much to her dismay that she would credit a chance meeting in a rec center for her presentation part.
Interestingly, it was Salman Khan‘s sister, Alvira Khan, who recommended that Athiya be thrown in one of his preparations.
Confirming the news, the young actor says, “I was working out in the gym when Salman sir’s sister, Alvira, walked in. She saw me after a very long time, and was surprised to see that I was no longer a kid. I guess she went home and told Salman sir about me.”
Athiya’s upcoming film, Hero, also stars Sooraj Pancholi, and has been produced by Salman Khan.
