Athiya Shetty’s ‘Hero’ release date coincides with dad Suniel Shetty’s debut film ‘Balwaan’

Call it destiny or sheer coincidence, Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya’s debut film Hero will release on the same day (September 11) this year as her father’s debut film Balwaan did 23 years ago. An ecstatic Suniel reveals, “I became a hero, thanks to Balwaan (1992) and now, Athiya’s Hero is set to release on the same day. This is crazy. I realised this just a couple of days ago. Athiya was blown away when she heard it. Even Nikhil (Advani) was surprised and said.
