The stunning-looking Shruti Haasan swept many off their feet by her sheer magical presence at the recent audio-launch of her debut Tamil film as heroine opposite Suriya in 7aam Arivu. The film has been directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who has given a hat-trick of hit films in Tamil over the past few years in Dheena, Ramana and Ghajini. Produced by Udhayanidhi’s Red Giant Movies, the film has already become one of the most-awaited films in recent times.
Asked if she felt burdened for being Kamal Haasan’s daughter as expectations might weigh her down every time she goes out to perform on stage or on-screen, Shruti says she hasn’t entered the industry with the only qualification of being Kamal’s daughter. “I have my own unique qualities and talents and should be judged according to that. In the short time that I have spent in Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood, I have learnt that sustaining fame is tougher than attaining it.
“However hard I might try, I can’t explain to you the technical excellence that has gone into making the movie 7am Arivu. For a long time, we were yearning to make films that match Hollywood films in terms of content and quality; this film could just be the solution we have been looking for. Most of the times, Tamilians remain unaware of their own strength and this film seeks to find a solution to how to bring it to the forefront.
“Though it’s a significant film for me as I’m debuting as heroine with this, this film is also a very important one for both director Murugadoss and Suriya. Suriya oozes with energy during the shoots and never complains about anything and goes about his job in a cool manner; that could be his greatest strength. I’m sure this film would take his acting capabilities to a new level and am really proud to be debuting opposite him,” concludes Shruti on a positive note.
Besides her acting talents, Shruti also knows to sing and compose songs. She had already scored the music of Kamal’s Unnaipol Oruvan. She might croon another number for Kamal’s upcoming film Viswaroopam. She informs us that she has also sung a song for Simbu’s upcoming film Osthi and might croon a number for AR Rahman’s album.
