“I Never Backed Down:” Suniel Shetty
Suniel Shetty, a famous Bollywood actor, recently revealed some of his daring past and how he bravely handled threats from the underworld. The seasoned actor illuminated the turbulent eras when Mumbai’s underworld had a dangerous hold on the motion picture industry.
In an open conversation with The BarberShop – Shantanu podcast, Shetty opened up about the incidents, saying, “We were in a time when the underworld’s influence was pervasive. They used to call me, intimidating me and making threats. I didn’t give up. I would counter with my barrage of insults instead.”
Suniel Shetty’s bold approach even attracted the attention of law enforcement personnel
Suniel Shetty’s brash and unyielding approach even attracted the attention of law enforcement personnel, who cautioned him about the potential risks he was inviting upon himself. They said, “You’re crazy, so listen. They’ll become upset if you don’t understand, and they could take any action.” Though Shetty refused to back down, he demanded protection and questioned his wrongdoing, asking, “What? I’m not mistaken; please defend me. Why did I do that?” His firm stance was evidence of his courage and refusal to give in to fear.
“I never allowed any of them to touch his kids:” Suniel Shetty
Suniel Shetty maintained his status as a loving father throughout this trying time by protecting his children, Athiya and Ahaan, from the perilous situations he found himself in. He had many brushes with the dark side, but he never allowed any of them to touch his kids. Shetty acknowledged, “I have never revealed what I have done to Athiya and Ahaan.” “I’ve carried out some bizarre deeds. Suffered injuries, retrieved, and recovered on my own. “Time is the best healer,” I frequently proclaim from the perspective of fitness.”
The Hera Pheri actor talked about the place from where he came
The Hera Pheri actor even mentioned how, due to Lamington Road’s dubious past, his father decided to move to Napeansea Road to better provide for his family. Suniel Shetty continued,” I won’t say it was a bad neighborhood, but there were gangs and other such things. And in Lamington Road, there was a history behind the first golden gang to emerge in Mumbai.”
He added, “Even though it was a great location for his business, the man didn’t want the kids to grow up nearby because, in his words, ‘if I let them get into a certain age in this area, that would probably impact them and the way they think.’ He borrowed money, stole, and begged. Although they relocated to a neighborhood with better people, schools, and culture, he did not steal.”
