Far from pursuing an acting career Shruti Haasan is at the moment completely consumed by the idea of becoming a singer.
“She has the loveliest singing voice and has been learning music and singing in India and abroad for years. She isn’t sure whether she wants to go into acting,” says a source very close to Kamal Haasan,
Madhavan is very embarrassed by stories that he will soon be paired with Kamal Haasan‘s elder daughter, the statuesque Shruti in a film to be directed by Nishikant Kamath.
“I don’t know where these stories came from. Right now there’s no such thing. We can’t even call the discussions to be in a preliminary stage. It’s just an idea that my director Nishikant and I have got. Beyond that everything else being written is fictional,” says Madhavan who’s all set to release the Tamil version of Nishikant Kamath’s Dombivali Fast on December 7.
“I’m neck-deep in organizing premieres in Chennai and Mumbai. Why would I be planning anything else right now? Shruti is the daughter of a very dear friend. Kamalji and I go back a long way. When I came into the Tamil industry from Jamshedpur there was a lot of resistance to my entry. Kamalji spoke for me, let the Tamil film industry know I was an asset. Much later we acted together in Ambe Sivam which he produced. And the script for my Hindi film Ramji Londonwale was written by Kamalji. He and I are family friends. We visit one another’s homes and see all of each other
