Actress and singer-songwriter Shruti Haasan, who recently appeared in the short film “Devi” alongside Kajol and Neha Dhupia among other actresses, opened up about her first day of shoot on the sets of ‘Luck’. Kamal Haasan’s daughter revealed that shooting her first film alongside Sanjay Dutt was a terrible experience for her.
Shruti Haasan made her Bollywood debut with Soham Shah’s Luck, which featured Imran Khan in the lead, along with Sanjay Dutt and Mithun Chakraborty. The actress made a shocking revelation that she had a terrible experience while working in Luck as she had no idea what she was doing. She revealed that her co-actors had no idea that it was her first film. Even her dad Kamal Haasan’s reaction after watching her debut film was not so pleasing for the actress.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Shruti opened up about this experience, she said: ”My first shot was with Sanjay Dutt, and I started to shiver as soon as the camera was switched on. I was so nervous. My co-star had no idea it was my first shot, but my director (Soham Shah) guided me through the process. Acting Is A Different Ballgame, Every scene of that film was really difficult and I had no idea what was going on. I had been on a lot of sets while growing up, but acting in a film is a different ballgame”.
She further stated – “The only thing I liked about myself in the film was my look, of a badass babe, which really caught on. Also, singing and performing to the song ‘Luck Aazma’. It was right up my alley. Thankfully, people remember me for the song and not my performance in the film”.
Shruti Haasan also revealed that she was disappointed with her performance and her dad’s reaction added to it, she said – “My surname was getting me places that many couldn’t reach. All dad said was, “Keep working”, after watching the film. I’d rather have him criticise me; this was not even a feedback!”.
She concluded her statement by saying – “I did hear his advice and started putting in more effort. I was much happier doing my second film, which was my first Telugu film, Anaganaga O Dheerudu, and worked really hard on AR Murugadoss’s 7aum Arivu. However, it was only after my turn in 3, that I won my father’s approval”.
On the work front, Shruti Haasan will next be seen in the upcoming southern flick titled ‘Krack’ alongside Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja.
