Shruti Haasan said that she feels the term Nepotism is quite invalid as the coin flips both ways- for star kids and the non-star ones.
Looks like Shruti Haasan has the apt and practical answer to one of the recent buzzwords of Bollywood- Nepotism.
Daughter of ace actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika, the 31-year-old star, during a candid interview with ANI, said that she feels the term Nepotism is quite invalid as the coin flips both ways- for star kids and the non-star ones.
“I am very proud of being a Haasan, I am very proud of my parents and what they have given me and of course my doors have opened because of them. But I had to walk through some very difficult time of not being accepted for nine years and I did it all by my own and my parents will vouch for that. I don’t agree with the term nepotism because I believe there are people who don’t have famous parents but get a lot of support from certain people, which I never got. You know, the coin flips both ways,” she said.
“I look forward to the audience, filling the theatre and enjoying it. It is a simple film, it’s about life. It’s about people and made with a lot of integrity. It is no fancy film, it is a simple story, so I want people to go to the theatres and leave with a smile on face,” she said.
Shruti, who will next be seen in her father’s directorial venture Sabaash Naidu, when asked who will she see Kamal Haasan as on sets- a father or a director, she promptly replied, “A director of course.”
“On set I look upto him (father Kamal Haasan) as a director because we are in a professional environment. I never bring the personal thing into that and he doesn’t either. It is all business.”
