While she had worked as a child artiste in father Kamal Haasan’s film Hey Ram, Shruti Haasan made her debut as a leading lady in Luck in 2009, which also starred Imran Khan and Sanjay Dutt. The film was a box office disaster and was panned by critics. Shruti has now admitted it was a wrong decision. Speaking on the chat show Famously Filmfare Tamil, she also revealed she would like to date Tamannah Bhatia if she were a man.
Asked to name someone she would like to ask for a date if she were a man, Shruti said, “If I were a guy, who would I take out on a date, Tamannaah! Actually, if I were a man, I would marry Tammy. She is such a good girl, I won’t let her go easily.”
Shruti said, “My first movie, I don’t know whether it was a right decision or a wrong decision. Actually why I see that as a wrong decision is because I was not ready at that time.”
An adaptation of 2001 Spanish thriller film, Intacto, Luck opened to a decent collection of Rs 3.17 crore and managed a meagre Rs 28.83 crore of lifetime collection.
“I was not aware of the depth and emotion and pressure of cinema. I was in a band and then suddenly I landed up here from the music world. Only after the movie was over, I realised its value. It was a learning process but ultimately it has been my own decision. So whether it is a failure or success, I am able to understand it for myself. Having said that, they have been always supportive from the beginning. I had my parent’s support,” she added.
She also credited her parents for her good looks. “Both (Sarika and Kamal) have looks that can kill and both of them have the same combination. I respect my father a lot; the way he does things, both personally and professionally. Seriously, I have a lot of respect for his achievements — not because he is my father, but because his style of doing everything is very different. Other than that, I can talk to him casually, I can openly share what I have in my mind. I would say that he is a kind of a very liberal father.”
