Finally, she has decided to enter the green room with her papa's approval. Yes... Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruthi is preparing herself to enter filmdom as a heroine next year. She disclosed this to the media yesterday.
Shruthi Hassan completed her studies in New York last year. She learnt music in California, and returned to her motherland this year with the idea of launching music albums. Her father, the legendary actor of Tamil cinema, Kamal Hassan, has decided to gift her a hi-tech composing studio to meet her musical requirements. At the same time, plenty of offers for acting started queueing up for the girl, and finally she has decided to accept those.
According to her, though she has lived in the US for a long time, she has not adopted the western ways. Her upbringing is very much Indian, and she believes she's an Indian and a Tamil girl at that. Even her friends in US tell her this.
She said: "The western culture has had no impact on me. In fact, it has helped me a lot to keep myself self-restrained. I have seen that many of the students in the west who hail from the eastern countries fall prey to drugs and other wrong habits. But my main concern has always been not to let my parents down."
She further said, "Many producers approached my father and me for acting in their films. But now I'm busy with a project to launch a music album this year. It might take a few months for me to start off on my acting career.
