Several rumors are doing rounds about Shruti’s disagreement with Gautami, who is working as the costume designer of ‘Sabash Naidu’, which also stars Kamal Haasan. It is heard that Shruti was not satisfied with the costumes selected for her by Gauthami so a cold war has started between the two. Soon after the news spread in media, Shruti released a statement through her spokesperson confessing her intervention in Gauthami’s work but claimed that it was an amicable intervention.
“Being someone who’s a fashion favourite and followed extensively for her style, it comes as no surprise to see Shruti’s clear-minded approach to even her looks in her film. While being very hands on, she also ensures she’s collaborating with the producer and director to freeze on her look so that everyone’s vision is taken into account. Her role in her father’s film is that of a young, feisty gal who’s grown up in Los Angeles, who uses fashion as an expression of her quirky and devil may care attitude. Keeping this brief in mind, Gautami brought in a set of clothes for Shruti when the look test was happening in the pre-production stage. Styling being a collaborative and subjective effort, needs inputs from the producer, director and the actor and giving the stylist feedback, redoing looks etc is standard procedure. The core team mutually felt the look needed more to be added and specific feedback was shared with Gautami. Being a thorough professional herself, Gautami understood and brought in a new lot of clothes which seemed to work better. Shruti in fact, added in elements from her own closet to help Gautami and to really make the looks pop given that she has lived in LA herself and is someone with a very distinctive sense of style,” stated Shruti Haasan’s statement.
