Despite the fact that he is veteran actor Suniel Shetty’s son, Ahan Shetty hasn’t displayed any diva behaviour during the promotions of his upcoming movie, Tadap. In fact, he was extremely casual and mild and almost introverted. Perhaps, this is why he says that even while growing up, he never knew many star kids and only started making friends from the industry recently. However, Ahan does say that he has known Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan, since they were kids.
“Even though dad is in the industry, we never really grew up in this environment. Also, we lived in South Bombay, I was in the American School of Bombay. Dad also has a lot of friends and gets immense respect from them. But we were never like a Bollywood family,” he told Siddharth Kannan in an interview.
“I think only recently, I have made a few friends, you know, Ranbir Kapoor, Shoojit Sircar, Bunty Ahluwalia, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor, all of them. But I have also known Aryan Khan since I was a kid. I was in the American School of Bombay, he was in the Ambani School. We used to meet on the field outside,” he added, saying that Aryan was a good football player.
Ahan went on to add that he went to the same school as Tiger Shroff and that the Ganapath actor was his inspiration. “I was in the same school as Tiger and I used to see him perform and he was always an inspiration. Now, getting into the industry, he has set the bar quite high in the industry in both action and dance. I really look up to him,” he said.
Ahan Shetty’s movie Tadap also features actor Tara Sutaria in the lead role. Tadap is a remake of the 2018 Telugu film RX 100.
