Shruti Haasan, who is a wild rocker at heart, started a rock band at the age of 16, called 'The Extramentals' and was the lead singer and keyboardist. The four member band, consisted of Brian Paiva on guitars, Kitha on bass, Jeremiah on drums and vocals/keyboard by Shruti, and they performed at various college festivals across the country, and also won a few contests.

The Extramentals, was quite popular in the local rock scene, but unfortunately they disbanded in the year 2009. A member of the band had to quit for personal reasons and this left Shruti hard to find a replacement and ended up disbanding.
"After The Extramentals disbanded because one of the founding members left, I didn't really get around forming another band for some reason or the other. Sure, I continued to perform, but it was always a collaborative effort; it was never with my own band," says Shruti Haasan.
However, the musician in Shruti Haasan is still alive and kicking despite her busy schedule in movies. Shruti, has collaborated with the British rock band named Dinosaur Pile-up, and the band will soon be releasing an album with Shruti Haasan on the vocals.
It is reported that Shruti Haasan, has also taken up the initiative of writing the songs for the album, and right after the album is released, the actress will tour all across UK and perform live concerts with the band. So will Shruti Haasan tour India along with the Dinosaur Pile-up? Well for that we will have to wait and watch!
