According to a leading daily, noted South star Shruti Haasan—who has not signed any films of late—has finally bagged her next big film. If all goes as planned, the lovely lady will be seen opposite Vidyut Jammwal in a period film. To be shot in Hindi, it will be helmed by Mahesh Manjrekar and will also feature veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah in a key role. Confirming the good news, a source said that Shruti has agreed in principle and allocated dates to the film.
“Shruti was approached with the script some time ago. She had loved the basic concept of the film, which is about an NRI who comes back to his country and how things change for him. She had verbally given her nod to the project, but hadn’t signed on the dotted line. She has finally locked her dates for the film now,” added the source.
The source also said that Shruti’s character will be an integral part of the plot.
“Shruti might not be doing a lot of action herself, but she’s the catalyst in the story. Her character is the reason behind the whole transformation in Vidyut’s character,” revealed the source.
Interestingly, 2017 was a year of mixed fortunes for her. She was seen in Si 3 and delivered a sincere performance. An action-drama, it also had Anushka Shetty and Suriya in the lead. Her other release, Behen Hongi Teri turned out to be a huge failure and failed to impress critics. In the romantic comedy, she was seen opposite Rajkumar Rao.
At present, she has the delayed Sabash Naidu in her kitty. It is a spy-comedy and will see her share screen space with her dad/veteran actor Kamal Haasan.
