BOL­LY­WOOD HOL­LY­WOOD TELE­VI­SION MU­SIC ‘IT WAS SCARY TO WORK WITH DAD’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

De­spite work­ing with the biggest film­mak­ers, ac­tor Shruti Haasan (left) felt scared when her fa­ther and ac­tor Ka­mal Haasan (right) helmed their up­com­ing film. Shruti will share screen space with Ka­mal for the first time. The fact that the spy com­e­dyad­ven­ture film has been di­rected and pro­duced by Ka­mal, made the 30-yearold ac­tor all the more ner­vous. “It’s been a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence. But it has been very scary. In the sense, he is di­rect­ing and pro­duc­ing it as well. There is that level of stress for me per­son­ally,” Shruti said. The film fea­tures Ka­mal repris­ing the role of a RAW of­fi­cer — a spin-off of one of the char­ac­ters which he played in Dasa­vathaaram (2008). She was, how­ever, re­lieved that her fa­ther was very happy with her work. “But he has been happy with my work and that to me has been the great­est com­pli­ment in my ca­reer. He is not the one to mince words, if he doesn’t get what he wants, he will say it. So that was a big fac­tor to en­cour­age me.”

Shruti fol­lows her fa­ther’s ad­vice while work­ing on her roles. “I have never been the one to de­pend, ever. Be­cause I come from the school of thought where my fa­ther told me, ‘Shruti I can ro­mance a chair.’ And he prob­a­bly can, the chair will love it,” the ac­tor quipped. “But it is al­ways a help to have a tal­ented co-star in front of you,” she added
