Suniel Shetty’s son to make his Bollywood debut next year


The year saw the debut of Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of superstar Sri Devi and producer Boney Kapoor, while other celebrity kids including Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan and Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya Panday, are also gearing up for their Bollywood debut soon. And now the latest in this line of celebrity kids is Suniel Shetty’s 22-year-old son Ahan Shetty.

In a recent interview with an Indian publication, renowned filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala confirmed that he is launching Ahan with the remake of Telugu hit RX 100. The producer earlier also launched actor Tiger Shroff with Heropanti in 2014.

“I have acquired the remake rights of RX 100 and it will be Ahan’s launch vehicle. The movie will release in May 2019. We chose the drama because it has gained a cult status among the youth. I know of youngsters who have watched the movie 10 times,” Sajid said, adding, “We are in talks with some directors, but have not decided on one yet.”

With similar hair styles and facial features, Ahan bears a striking resemblance to his father Suniel, who was one of the most popular action heroes of the 90s. Interestingly, Sajid also launched Suniel with the action-romance drama, Waqt Hamara Hai, in 1993.

Ahan’s sister Athiya Shetty, 25, made her acting debut in 2015 with Hero, produced by actor Salman Khan. She has also been part of the Varun Dhawan-starrer Nawabzaade and Mubarakan, alongside Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz.
