Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming film ‘Mubarakan' in which she has shared screen space with actors like Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz. The actress was launched by Salman Khan himself and she feels extremely grateful to him for that. The actress opened up in a recent interview and talked about her equation with Salman Khan and how it was working with Anil Kapoor. "Salman Khan is an extremely important person in my life. I want to make him proud with my work. Anil sir has been the most supportive co-star I've had so far. He is extremely kind and wants a certain kind of unity on set," she said. Athiya further said that Anil Kapoor is very energetic despite being in the industry for close to three decades.

The actress recalled that when director Anees Bazmee approached her for the film, she was laughing the entire time when he was narrating the script. Athiya feels that ‘Mubarakan' is a very entertaining film with some great situational comedy. She further said that she got to learn a lot while working with established stars like Anil Kapoor. The actress respects her father very much and considers him her backbone as well as her strength.  

‘Mubarakan' is releasing in theatres worldwide on this weekend and remains to be seen if it will be able to sustain at the box office or not. The film's promos as well as trailer have received mixed response.
