In an interview to TOI, Shetty disclosed that he started his clothing line when he was only 18. “After 30 years, all of us have come together to take the brand forward. My dad left home (Mangalore) at the age of nine. He came to Mumbai and worked as a cleaner boy,” he added.

#The wooden comment

Suniel had revealed to the media not long ago that a critic had called him wooden after watching Balwaan. “I never dreamt that I would end up doing dangerous stunts in films. I did it because even after the success of my first film, a particular critic, who was very powerful at that time called me ‘wooden material’ and he said that I should go back to my family’s restaurant business. So, I took it up as a challenge. I told myself I needed to do something where I could be different”, he shared.

#Debut and a debut

Suniel and his daughter Athiya debuted on the same day, September 11. Balwaan released in 1992 and Hero hit the theatres in 2015.
