Shruti Haasan, actress
Singer, music composer, actor. Kicked about her role in ‘7 Aum Arivu’, Shruti Haasan is ready for the balancing act.
Like many star kids these days, Shruti Haasan wants to be known more for her achievements than as Kamal Haasan’s daughter. And going by her track record so far, she seems confident of this happening soon.
The 25-year-old is now known for her musical talent and her acting is decent, as seen in ‘Luck’ (2009), ‘Dil To Baccha Hai Ji’ (2010) and the Telugu film ‘Anaganaga O Dheerudu’ (2010). While the initial year was a bit rough, with Luck bombing at the box office, her soon to be launched ‘7 Aum Arivu’, said to be worth Rs 84 crores, comes with a truckload of expectations. And that’s not all. Other films lined up include ‘Oh My Friend’, opposite Siddharth Narayan and ‘3’, opposite Dhanush.
Here’s more from the actress who admits that she is a director’s artiste.
We know that you enjoy writing poetry and short stories. What style do you prefer?
I used to write every day, be it poetry or lyrics. Now it happens rarely. But most of what I pen down is emotionally driven.
Over the last year, your personal style has changed from rock-chic to feminine...
That was a phase. I adopted more of a rock-chic style as I was doing a lot of music and stage performances. Being part of movies gives you a different feeling. I’m now into Indian clothes, like saris.
What’s on your iPod?
‘Time to Pretend’ by the American psychedelic rock band, MGMT.
How would you compare performing on stage as singer to your work in front of the camera?
You are feeding different things on stage and in front of the camera. The intensity of the performance and the energy metre is different. It’s a different ball game.
Are you confident about balancing both?
I can do one or two songs or bring out an album in a year. But composing music for a movie will be difficult. It requires a lot of time and commitment. That said, I think I can definitely balance music and movies.
Your views on method-acting?
Frankly, I haven’t really understood method-acting. I give my all when my character needs it but I’m Shruti Haasan when the camera is switched off. I’m a director’s actor.
You are not new to fame, so what, according to you, are the perks of being a movie star?With my parent’s hard work, people knew me as their daughter. I joined this industry because I want to be an artist, a performer. Fame is a byproduct of this work. Today, I’m glad that people know me for what I do.(ENS)
