Throwback Thursday: Did you know Athiya Shetty would say ‘mere do do baap’ after watching father Suniel Shetty’s ‘Gopi Kishan’?

Suniel Shetty played a double role in his film, ‘Gopi Kishan’ and his on-screen son’s dialogue, ‘Mere do do baap’ had become quite popular at the time. So much so, that the actor’s real-life daughter Athiya Shetty too had started saying it, much to his annoyance.

In a throwback interview with a news portal, Suniel had said that he never imagined that such simple dialogues and situations would become so iconic. He also wondered where the child actor is these days who shot to fame after that scene. The actor revealed that he had a very naughty look but he doesn’t remember his name.

Elaborating further, he added that whenever people would see him in public, they would say ‘Mere do do baap’. Even Athiya, after watching the film, started calling him, ‘Mere do do baap’ and he used to keep telling her that it is not funny. However, she loved it and kept repeating.

Athiya, in an old interview with a news portal, had said that what she admires about her father is that he’s not judgmental. He’s extremely motivating and always by her side. She added that he encourages her and her decisions and has never said, ‘I told you so’.
