Count on Shruti Haasan at any time to say or do something which borders on controversy. The stunning-looking daughter of Kamal Haasan lives life on her own terms and obviously, her statements on life, society, etc. are forthright and bold.
Shruti is now a leading actress in Telugu films and has a handful of films in Hindi which might help her make her mark in Bollywood too. In her latest utterance, Shruti has said that she loves children and would definitely love to have number of children on her own.
Leading actresses seldom talk about marriage as married actresses are relegated to doing only ‘sister’ roles irrespective of their youthful looks. In such a backdrop, a young and frontline actress such as Shruti expressing a desire to have a child of her own has stumped critics.
In a recent interview to a magazine, Shruti has said “I won’t be losing my personal freedom and liberty for anything and anybody. It’s very difficult to find a genuinely good male partner nowadays. so it’s doubtful whether I would be able to get a partner who accepts me as I am and allows me to continue function independently. I would not allow anybody to rob me of my liberty in the name of being in a relationship.
“There can’t be any second opinion on this. As such, I don’t believe in the institution of marriage or remaining with the tag of a ‘girlfriend’ of someone. However, I love children a lot and want to have a child of my own. I can’t explain why I feel so,” concluded Shruti.
