Athiya Shetty is currently busy shooting for her next Motichoor Chaknachoor along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the actress is learning a lot from her co-actor. The quirky wedding comedy brings together the unusual pairing of Nawazuddin and Athiya for the first time.
“I am sharing the screen space with a versatile actor like him (Nawazuddin) for the first time and while shooting I am also learning a great amount of work from all the actors, including Nawaz Sir, who is unbelievable to even observe,” Athiya said
The actor, who has featured in films like Hero and Mubarakan, says she is equally happy to be working with female director Debamitra Hasan, for the first time. The team has started shooting in Bhopal and Athiya is enjoying the process. “Motichoor Chaknachoor is a genre that I’ve always wanted to be a part of. It’s the type of cinema I enjoy watching as an audience. Though comedy appears to be an easy genre, it’s quite a difficult task to make people laugh. I’m truly excited to be working on the project,” Athiya said.
Athiya, who recently turned 26 had a working birthday. The actress says she doesn’t get excited about birthdays. “I did get a chance to take a day off and come back home, but I chose to work. I don’t get excited about birthdays. I am not a party person. Just being with my loved ones and family is how I usually celebrate my birthday,” she said.
