After travelling all over the place I've been back here for three to four years now and have my own home here."

When asked about her first impressions of Mumbai, Shruti quipped as,
"My first impression of Mumbai has changed with time... At first, I found the city very chaotic and messy, but over time, I've begun to love the energy of the city. I used to live in Bandra earlier and I loved the vibe there as it's very calm and vibrant. And though I love Chennai because it's where I was born, Mumbai is now my home. The food is different - there is a lot more place and space in Chennai, but it's way hotter than Mumbai."
