While debutantes Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi are gearing up for their first release, the duo seem to have become quite good friends. ��Pancholi has recently been making headlines for his alleged involvement in the Jiah Khan suicide case. ��Shetty says that she has never judged Pancholi, despite this, and feels he is a humble person.
In her first-ever interview, the star daughter told��Filmfare, “I believe when people have the opportunity to interact with him (Pancholi), it will change their opinion of him… He’s one of the most genuine and humble persons I’ve met. ��I never saw him in that light. ��I never judged him. ��We never spoke about it (the Jiah Khan case) either.”
“I’m happy I’m debuting with him. ��We have a great comfort level… We are good friends,” she added.
The industry kids are being launched in Salman Khan’s production, ‘Hero’, which has been��directed by Nikhil Advani. ��The film is a remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1980s hit of the same name and is slated for release on July 3rd.
