Her happy family got bigger the moment her brother, Ahan Shetty was born. Although her brother still hasn’t had big projects in films, he still has a charming personality coupled with a gorgeous face just like Athiya. 

Acting at a young age

Even as a kid, she’s always loved performing. When she was still studying at Cathedral and John Connon School as well as the American School of Bombay, she would always audition for school plays. This is how she met fellow actors Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff. In a way, this is where it all started for the young actress. 

Despite her family’s background in film, her parents aren’t her inspiration to pursue the career. Although her family would’ve had a deep understanding of her passion for film, her one true inspiration was Aishwarya Rai. 

When Athiya was younger, she used to watch Aishwarya get ready for her shots in Umrao Jaan. This fascinated her the most and then and there, Athiya wanted to become an actress. After that, she took acting classes to further develop her skills.

As a kid, she often sneaked into her mother’s wardrobe to get the sarong. She uses this to drape around her as a saree so she can mimic Bollywood actresses she got to watch in films. Even at an early age, she’s fascinated by the entertainment world and that passion got her to where she is today. 

Because of this passion for acting and film, she relocated to the US to pursue a degree in the field. She enrolled at New York Film Academy and it helped her reach her goals of becoming a better actress.

Before getting her lead role in Hero, she had to work to build her career and make ends meet. While she was staying in the US, she worked hard to help finance her stay there.
