13th Feb, 2023

Suniel Shetty is one of the most dynamic actors in Bollywood. He lately won hearts with his solid act in the series Dharavi Bank. Besides enjoying the admiration, the actor is presently in a happy space. His daughter Athiya Shetty recently tied the knot with her longtime love KL Rahul in a private close ceremony. The couple decided to get hitched at Shetty's property in Khandala. Suniel Shetty recently discussed welcoming a new family member in a media interview. He began by mentioning the term "father-in-law."

In a media chat, the Balwaan actor revealed that he was a fan of KL Rahul's skills. He also said that he knows Rahul as much as he knows himself. Suniel revealed, "I don’t know the role of father-in-law. I was his fan. Today, there is a relationship, but I loved Rahul like I do a lot of young talent. I am someone who has always gone to watch young talents perform, even in my prime as an actor. I would go to Wankhade to watch young people play. When I saw Rahul play, I thought this kid was good, and then he is from my own backyard, he is from Mangalore. I am someone who is very proud of anything that children from small towns achieve, so I was a fan and today I am his father. I know him as much as he knows himself, every move of his."

He further revealed that his son Ahan Shetty's partner will be like his daughter whenever she joins the family. Suniel Shetty continued, "Today, for me, it is Athiya, Ahaan and Rahul and then whoever comes into Ahaan’s life will be my daughter. Because if I look at it as in-laws, then this entire stigma that television has thrown on us, saas-bahu, sasur (father-in-law), that’s not a good space."
