Athiya Shetty is moving forward in the film industry, one step at a time. She is gearing up for her upcoming release 'Mubarakan' in which she has shared screen space with Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, and others. Athiya, who is the daughter of actor Suniel Shetty has opened up in an interview recently. The actress feels that being a star child, an artist has certain disadvantages as well. "I get a lot of love from the elders of the film industry because of the goodwill that my father has earned. People waited for my debut. But at the same time, the biggest disadvantage of a star child is facing criticism of nepotism," she said.

Athiya came into limelight when she debuted in Salman Khan's production 'Hero' in the year 2015. The actress feels that star kids may get the first opportunity easily but in an industry like Bollywood, surviving without talent and appreciation is not possible. Talking about her upcoming film's director Anees Bazmee, Athiya said that he is a focused director and treats each character of the film with equal importance. 'Mubarakan' is the actress' second film and she feels fortunate to have worked with such a big star cast. 

‘Mubarakan' is the first film in which Anil Kapoor will feature alongside his nephew Arjun Kapoor. Another highlight of the film is that Arjun will appear in a double role in the film. The actor will sport a turbaned look for one of his two characters in the film.
