Shruthi Haasan's foray with Kamal Haasan

With his esteemed Dasavatharam fetching him laurels across far-flung corners of the globe, Universal Hero Kamal Haasan has commenced his remake version of A Wednesday. Titled Thalaivan Irukiran in Tamil, the Telugu version has been named as Ee Nadu. The shooting had hit the floors before couple of days in Hyderabad and would be simultaneously filmed in Telugu and Tamil.

When fathers are treading elatedly launching their heirs into tinsel town on respective panoramas,Kamal Haasan is introducing his daughter Shruthi Haasan with this magnum opus. Dont expect the young lass making her onscreen appearance in lead role. Uh-huh! Shruthi who has been churning out many musical albums makes her debut as music director with Thalaivan Irukiran. Though her part goes inclusive of scoring signature song, she's involved in deep discussions with her crew in spelling the best.

Once Shruthi had represented her dad for collecting Filmfare Awards where she uttered, Hope, One day I would erase my fathers records and bag them on my own records.

Of course, the girl is on for the hotfooted task.

I always wanted to bring a change to Bhojpuri cinema and reform the industry by bringing in more sensibility as well as sensitivity. I am planning to take Deswa to all prominent film festivals across the world,she says.

Happy about acting in Aadhi Bhagawan, the Jayam Ravi starrer directed by Ameer, she says, Ameer is a talented a director and I loved working with him. The beauty from Bihar has mastered Tamil and converses only in Tamil with the unit members, we learn.
