The 61-year-old actor also added that he was "petrified" on his first day on a film set, and decided to not show up. He wrote, "30 years later I still felt nervous on my first day of filming with the great Rajinikanth Sir.”

Shetty shared light on the perspective of having fear. He wrote, "The more you face those fears head-on, the more you’ll realise they take care of themselves. Next time you feel fear, just take a deep breath, stand tall and remind yourself that you’re on the brink of something goooooood. It means you’re pushing boundaries for bigger dreams. Fear is good."
