Actor Suniel Shetty told the Bombay Times that Athiya has gone to England with her brother Ahan for a holiday. “Yes, she is in England, but she is with Ahan. The brother-sister duo has gone there for a holiday. Rest you may check with them,” the actor told Bombay Times.
In his interview with TOI, while avoiding talking about their rumoured relationship, when asked about Athiya and KL Rahul being brand ambassadors for the same eye brand, Suniel said, “I think it is best you speak to them.”
“As far as the ad goes… I mean it is an international brand and they chose to take the two of them as the ambassadors. I think they look brilliant together. They are a good-looking couple, na? So, it totally works from a brand perspective. And I must say, they look good together, well, in the ad (laughs!),” he added.
