Athiya Shetty recently made her debut in the tinsel town with Nikhil Advani's 'Hero' opposite Sooraj Pancholi. If sources are to be believed then the young girl has already bagged her second film too.
As per a report in Mid-day rumours suggest that Athiya has been signed by Karan Johar for one of his upcoming films. A source was quoted saying, "She had been going through scripts for a while now, and wanted to take her own time to decide what to take up next. However, when she was approached for Karan Johar’s film, she seems quite excited. So, if things go as per plan, she will definitely be on board and we will start looking for the male lead soon.”
The source further added, "Athiya, who has been launched by Salman Khan, is not bound by any contract and is free to work with any director and production house. Salman has also made it clear that he won’t have to guide Athiya at each and every step of her career as she is capable of making her own decisions.”
Buzz is that the film might roll next year and the crew members have been asked to keep their lips zipped. However when the leading daily contacted Karan’s spokesperson, they denied the report. On the other hand Athiya was unavailable for comment.
