Shruti Haasan to pen down a script!
Shruti Haasan, who was last seen in the Hindi film Behen Hogi Teri, has tried her hands on almost every aspect of filmmaking. From acting in Hindi and South Indian films to singing to film production, she has done it all. But, it seems, the elder daughter of seasoned actor Kamal Haasan is not satisfied with just that and hence is eager to add one more feather to her cap. Yes, Shruti is all set to turn scriptwriter. “I have always been interested in writing and often pen the lyrics of my own songs. I also write short poems and stories when I am travelling. So writing a film is something I will definitely explore this year,” Shruti told a daily.
According to reports, her father Kamal Haasan, who is currently busy with his next film Vishwaroopam 2, had also gifted her a script writing software on her birthday, so that her daughter could polish her writing skills and become a better writer. More often than not we have seen creative geniuses like her donning director’s hat after having a successful career as actors. So, is Shruti too thinking on the same lines? “Direction is a huge responsibility, and though given a chance I would love to direct too, I cannot be flippant about it. I have seen my father in action and I know a director can make or break careers as people depend solely on their vision when they wield the microphone. So I would like to go into writing for now,” she says.
We hope Shruti Haasan comes up with an interesting idea as Indian cinema is really running short of engaging stories.
