Shruti Haasan to turn script writer soon, after dabbling in singing and producing
Shruti Haasan seems to be multi-talented. Apart from acting in movies, she has produced a short ad film on dengue awareness campaign for the Tamil Nadu government. She is also a talented singer, having sung a recreated version of 'Ranjha Ranjha' from the movie Raavan along with Academy award winner A R Rahman, which left the audience mesmerised.
After all this, she went on to slay the fashion red carpet at the recently concluded Cannes International Film Festival. Now Haasan seems to be adding another feather to her cap by becoming a script writer and dabbling in the art of writing.
This will be her debut behind-the-scenes, so to speak. “I’ve 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,” said Shruti according to a report by Mumbai Mirror. She also has plans to release around four to five multilingual movies on a small budget under her own production banner.
Her father, Kamal Haasan — with whom she recently wrapped up shooting for Sabaash Naidu — reportedly gifted her a software for script writing along with a writing course (as the actress wanted to further hone her writing skills), on her 29th birthday two years ago.
The only thing that's left from the actor's skill set is direction.
“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 said according to the same Mumbai Mirror report.
Shruti recently walked out of Tamil historic film Sanghamitra, citing reason that she had not received a bound script or a proper schedule. Her latest Bollywood venture was Behen Hogi Teri opposite Rajkummar Rao.
