A Chelsea supporter, Athiya enjoyed watching English Premier League,  

“I became a Chelsea fan because of my dad and brother, I try and watch all the important games. I’m  thrilled they’ve won the league this season– once again Mourhino proves to be an unbeatable couch, winning three leagues in different countries! My favorite player is Lampard, I was heartbroken when he left last year. said the debutant excitedly.”


Athiya is certainly one of the most promising newcomers this year and is presently prepping herself to start with the promotions of her first film with co-star Sooraj Pancholi.

‘Hero’ is produced by Salman Khan and Subhash Ghai and directed by Nikhil Advani. The film will be released worldwide by Eros International on 3rd July 2015.

Will she able to make the box office records ring in some hits like Jacqueline Fernandez did?
