Bollywood is exploring connections outside their realm these days. After Priyanka Chopra’s foray into Hollywood came PeeCee’s Royal connection with the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. And now from what we just discovered, actor Suniel Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty is friends with Canadian rapper Drake. The two even follow each other on Instagram.

This seemingly newfound friendship became the talk of the town when Drake left a comment on the actress’ Instagram post, where she was wishing her father a happy birthday.

“Happy birthday Papa Thank you for always being so patient with me, keeping the faith when I forget to and never letting go of my hand. I hope to make you proud every single day. I love you. With a heart like yours, you deserve all the happiness the world has to offer.” Athiya dedicated this post to her father in a throwback picture with him.


But what happened next was rather interesting as Drake called her dad a ‘legend’ from what we gather.



That happened and all hell broke loose on Instagram.

So what exactly are we missing here?

Turns out, that while Athiya and Drake were busy holidaying in London this summer, they happened to cross paths and next we know is that they became ‘friends’ and the comment above is proof enough that they are.

Rapper Drake is currently riding on the success of his fifth studio album Scorpion and also gave the world ‘Kiki’, which took the world by storm.

Athiya Shetty was last seen playing Arjun Kapoor’s lady love in comedy Mubarakan and will soon be seen sharing screen space with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Motichoor Chaknachoor.
