‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Hassan has revealed that his elder daughter and actress Shruti Hassan has shed tears many times after seeing his performances in films. “Yes, my daughter has cried many times after watching my films,” he has confessed.
The mightily-talented and multi-faceted Shruti Hassan debuted in films first by a Hindi flick Luck which didn’t prove lucky enough for her at the box-office. She also debuted later in Telugu but again, her debut film fizzed out. However, she had a bright debut in Tamil films as heroine through 7am Arivu opposite Surya.
The film, directed by A.R Murugadoss, has been running to packed houses all over the State and elsewhere as it nears the 50-day mark later this week. She is also happy that the song Why this kolaveri di… from her upcoming film 3 opposite Dhanush has hit the bull’s eye and has become such a rage among the youths. Shruti Hassan pairs up opposite Dhanush in this film, directed by Dhanush’s wife Aishwarya, who makes her directorial debut with this film.
Shruti Hassan has seen her father Kamal Hassan’s films like Mahanadhi and Gunaa at least 20 times. Whenever she used to watch those films, she would sob uncontrollably, apparently pained at the plight of her father (in the film, of course!). One thing is for sure: Shruti Hassan doesn’t need to go anywhere for tips on acting!
