It might be bit hard to believe, but Suniel Shetty turns 58 on Sunday and doesn’t look anywhere close to it, thanks to his fitness levels. On the veteran actor’s birthday, there were wishes galore from fans and even celebrities, but the best wish was from his daughter Athiya Shetty. Sharing a super adorable picture, the actress had the sweetest birthday greeting for her father, calling him her ‘best friend’, wishing him joy and laughter while conveying gratitude for always having her back.
To wish her father on her birthday, Athiya shared a throwback snap where she's little and looking unrecognisable, as her eyes were fixed on something while she rested in Suniel Shetty’s arm. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that there isn’t much of a difference for the ’Hera Phera’ star except for the fact that he sports a beard nowadays.
Athiya wrote, “happy birthday to my best friend, i love you, papa! i wish you so much joy and laughter thank you for always having my back, and i hope you know we have yours, always!” (sic)
Suniel responded with three heart emojis to call her the ‘love’ of his life.
Anil Kapoor and ‘Kichcha’ Sudeep were some of the others who wished Suniel on his special day.
The former wrote, “Happy Birthday @SunielVShetty! It's been great watching you flourish in so many different fields and looking so effortlessly cool through it all! Hope it only gets better from here on out!”
Meanwhile, the Kannada star’s heartfelt message read, “I'm happy to have met u, known u, get closer to u n work wth u. U have been always been selfless n u continue to leave an impact everytime we meet. Mch luv to u for having given me a place in ur life. Wshn u loadsaa happiness n health. Happy returns @SunielVShettyAnna”
Suniel will be seen in two South films, ‘Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham’ and Sudeep’s ‘Pailwaan’ and in Sanjay Gupta’s gangster film ‘Mumbai Saga’.
