Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty is in a happy place with the marriage of his daughter Athiya Shetty to the Indian cricketer KL Rahul. The couple’s wedding ceremony took place on January 23 at his farmhouse in Khandala.
Now even after almost two months, the doting father-in-law cannot help but praise his son-in-law. Shetty, who feels blessed to have a son-in-law like KL Rahul, recently mentioned that seeing the cricketer play makes him anxious, and he can now relate more to cricketers and their lives.
In an interview with ET Times, Shetty said, “I am anxious because that’s my child (KL Rahul) playing. I would wish well for him but through his eyes and seeing him, I have started empathising and sympathising, appreciating every cricketer there is here. When your child goes through a low, it shakes you more probably than it shakes the child because he is the master of that form but you don’t know. You are seeing him as a father.”
He further added, “But then when he rises like a phoenix you feel this is something to be inspired from and this is what the team’s tough boys are. I am a proud father. Blessed is Athiya and blessed is Ahaan because he gets to learn about him. He is calm, composed, and very respectful. I don’t think I could have asked for a better son.” Nonetheless, Shetty is elated that KL Rahul has cultural similarities with him.
The actor is currently seen in action-thriller web series ‘Hunter’, which is streaming on Amazon miniTV.
