Ac­tor Shruti Haasan made her Bol­ly­wood de­but in 2009 and has worked in var­i­ous films. How­ever she says be­ing in the rat race with other Bol­ly­wood ac­tors has never been on her mind. “I can’t work cre­atively if I think about my po­si­tion in the in­dus­try. It doesn’t change my per­spec­tive and I have never had that kind of pres­sure. The beauty of our pro­fes­sion is how things change overnight. The en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try is truly been en­ter­tain­ing,” she says.

In fact, she feels that there should not be any com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the var­i­ous re­gional film in­dus­tries and the Hindi film in­dus­try ei­ther. “I think it’s the In­dian film in­dus­try com­bined which makes us the big­gest en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try in the world, and not just Bol­ly­wood. If we were to di­vide the num­bers in iso­la­tion, it would never have the im­pact that we have as the com­bined in­dus­try,” she says.

The ac­tor will soon be seen shar­ing screen space with ac­tor Ra­jkum­mar Rao in her next film and has just fin­ished the first sched­ule of the film in Luc­know. Talk­ing about her char­ac­ter in the film, she says, “My char­ac­ter is a per­fect mix of be­ing a tomboy and also com­pletely fem­i­nine. I think I am like that in per­sonal life as well, a blend of dif­fer­ent qual­i­ties,” she shares.
