Actress Shruti Haasan talks about South Indian movies as the debate on nepotism in Bollywood intensifies. His father was the reason he got a place in the cinema. Rumor has it that saying no would be a crime. “The family name has opened the door to the cinema for me. It would be a crime to deny it, but I realize that things are different in Tamil and Telugu films compared to Bollywood,” Shruti told Cinema Express. Shruthi made her Tamil debut with Surya’s ‘Ezham Arivu’.
Shruti says that it was because of her father Sivakumar that Surya came to the cinema. “I made my Tamil debut with Surya. Surya came to the cinema because of my father Sivakumar. However, he rose to stardom with his excellent acting.” “Tamil and Telugu films can only hold on if they have the talent after launch. It can be done with hard work, but I think it is different in Bollywood,” Shruti said.
Haasan was born to actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika Thakur in Madras (present-day Chennai). Her father is a Tamilian, while her mother Sarika was born to a Maharashtrian father and Rajput mother. Her younger sister Akshara Haasan is also an actress. Actor and lawyer Charuhasan is her uncle. Her cousins are actresses Anu Hasan and Suhasini Maniratnam. Haasan studied at Lady Andal school in Chennai and moved to Mumbai to study psychology at St. Andrew’s College.
