Suniel Shetty had earlier termed his father his real hero. While launching his showroom in a building in Mumbai's Worli, the actor had said his father used to clean plates in the same building. “This is where my father, Veerappa Shetty, used to work. He used to clean plates here since he worked as a waiting boy at a restaurant. My father is my real hero. He started working at the age of nine. He used to sleep on flattened mustard sacks and used a rolled-up gunny bag as a pillow,” he had said in the interview to a national daily.
