Suniel Shetty: All actors are not druggies; we are good people
Suniel Shetty also said that he is worried about his children being branded as 'druggies'
Actor Suniel Shetty is aware of the continuous discussion around star kids, their lifestyles, and involvement of drugs in the film industry. While he is confident that his children, daughter and actor Athiya Shetty and son Ahan, are safe, he does worry about the wrong perception people have around star kids.
"I don't worry for my kids," he told IANS, adding, "I am worried about kids in the industry in general. Every industry kid is called a 'druggie'. No, we are not, we are good people. We are socially placed and we do our CSR and I am very vocal about it. What I support is a clean, good, friendly environment."
The actor also said that he believes in the concept of live and let live. "Failure has never come my way. I am Suniel Shetty even after five flops. You cannot tell me how to walk and talk. You can say about me, 'He is a flop actor,' but where are you in life? Who are you to question? These are the questions I would ask if you get personal. Otherwise, you are living your life and I am living my life. So, no judgement."
While daughter Athiya is already three films old in the Hindi film industry, Ahan will soon make his Bollywood debut with the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster RX 100. "I think my image will be affected by him because he is so damn good. Even if he does action, people will say, 'How come the father was not so good? Father was average, but the son is superb.' He is far more sincere. He has a golden heart," said Suniel.
