Says Athiya, “As a family, we have always supported the idea of girl child welfare. For this project, neither of us needed convincing. I am so glad that we got the opportunity to work together for such a noble cause.”

Athiya Shetty, who is known for doing humanitarian work through an NGO that she runs along with her mother, Mana Shetty, will now be sharing screen with her father Suniel for the first time. The father-daughter duo has shot a special video on girl child’s right to education.

The actress had been waiting for a chance to work alongside her father long before her debut and she finally got a chance to do so through this initiative. “Coincidentally, the video addresses the issue of female infanticide and education for girls, which made shooting for the video an emotional experience for the father-daughter duo,” says a source close to the actress. 

Says Athiya, “As a family, we have always supported the idea of girl child welfare. For this project, neither of us needed convincing. I am so glad that we got the opportunity to work together for such a noble cause.”

On being asked about what she learnt from her father, Athiya says, “My father is disciplined and prepared before he faces the camera. I try to emulate his approach towards work. He has taught me that nothing worth having, comes easy.”
