Actress Athiya Shetty feels the constant spotlight on the professional and personal life of a celebrity is a part and parcel of showbiz but says sometimes it does bother her.

Asked if she loves all the public scrutiny, Athiya told IANS: “Well, some of it I don’t love. But I am getting used to it.

“It is a part and parcel of the job. So I don’t take negativity too seriously. I try and take it constructively,” she added.

The daughter of actor Suniel Shetty entered showbiz alongside actor Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj with “Hero” in 2015. Since then she has been in the news for many reasons including link-up rumours.

The actress will soon be seen in multi-starrer film “Mubarakan”.

“I never really had negative conceptions about Bollywood because I never experienced it. And touch ood I have still not experienced it because everybody has been very supportive and loving to me,” she said.

“Mubarakan” features veteran actor Anil Kapoor and his nephew actor Arjun Kapoor together for the first time.

Actresses Ileana D’cruz is also part of the project, produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Murad Khetani’s Cine 1 Studios and Ashwin Varde.

The romantic comedy will release on July 28.

Talking about her journey in Bollywood, Athiya said: “‘Hero’ will always be extremely special and hold a very special place in my heart. I got to learn so much, made friends. I cherish every moment spent on the sets.”
