We expected that Shruthi Haasan will be busy shuttling to Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad to act in films but she is flying to Tirupathi and Trivandrum to visit temples
What is that all of a sudden you have started visiting temples? Do you have great faith in God?
There is no Pooja room in my house. My father also never taught me to pray but I have great faith in God. Not alone Tirupathi and Trivandrum temples, I am visiting lots of temples without anyone’s knowledge. This is purely my relationship with God. I am not particular about any God. If I feel like worshipping a particular God, I will worship him. My dad never asked me about this. I also never told him about this.
Are you acting in a remake film since Gabbar Singh was a hit? Is there any sentiment attached to this?
No. I never thought that way. Prabhu Deva who directed the Telugu film Unakkum Enakkum is remaking this film in Hindi. I am the heroine of this film. The original film was remade four or five years back. Lots of things have changed during this period so there will be some changes in the screenplay according to the present trend of Bollywood. This will be a musical film. Gabbar Singh is the remake of the Hindi film Dabangg but no one told me that I had acted like Sonakshi Sinha. If the film is good, it is okay with me.
This is the time that you are going to be a hit heroine. Now you have started concentrating in musical albums and TV shows. Will it not affect your cinema career?
Cinema is a career. I am sparing my time and giving my work with dedication but music is my soul. I can never leave music. I liked the Rush Show music in MTV in which I compose tunes for my music. I don’t know what the heroine Shruthi will be doing after 10 years but definitely she will be performing as a musician.
There is still an image that you are the daughter of Kamal Haasan
I am proud about it. Even if I want I cannot avoid that. Every time the audience will see me as Kamal’s daughter only but I should prove my mettle in acting then only people will know that Shruthi Haasan has scored. This is the mileage in my career.
