Actor Athiya Shetty posted a photo on Instagram today to wish her father Suniel Shetty on his birthday.
And one of the 757 comments on the picture was from the international celebrity rapper Drake.
Drake – whose kiki challenge spurned everyone into ‘accidental’ dancing – commented on the post and Athiya responded to the comment as well.
And the social media just could not digest this latest Hollywood-Bollywood crossover.
Confused netizens flooded the internet with questions, trying to figure out a mystery bigger than black holes – how did the two stars know each other?

Remember when Drake had a crush on Athiya Shetty?— gif gallery 🌷 (@bollywoodgifss) July 16, 2018
Apparently, the two actually met in London this summer when both were on a holiday. And clearly stayed in touch even when the holiday ended. In fact, the two frequently like each other’s pictures on Instagram.
It definitely looks like the start of a ‘legendary’ friendship!
