Don't worry about Shruti's career anymore: Kamal Haasan
Panaji: Kamal Haasan feels the period of worry for daughter Shruti's film career is over for him and he wants her to now focus on consolidating on her achievements.
The 27-year-old actress, singer and musician made her Bollywood debut with 2009 film 'Luck'. She juggles between the South Indian film industry and Bollywood and her father is happy to see that 10-film-old Shruti is getting to work with different filmmakers in different industries.
"She is doing her work to the best of her knowledge and to the best of my knowledge she is doing fine. I will admit that there was a moment of worry for both Shruti and me but now the worrying part is over. Now, it is all about developing it to the correct pitch. That is our only concern now," Kamal told us in an interview.
The 'Vishwaroopam' star's other daughter Akshara is also set to make her film debut with 'Paa' director R Balki's next film opposite Tamil star Dhanush, who made his Bollywood debut with 'Raanjhanaa'. Amitabh Bachchan also stars in the film.
"I think it is confirmed that she will star in Balki's film. I am happy for her and wish her all the best," the 59-year-old actor said on the sidelines of IFFI.
Having an illustrious film career spanning over five decades does make Kamal the best adviser for his two daughters, but the veteran says he hardly shares any tip or trivia with them when it comes to their work.
"I give very little or no input at all. It is mostly the DNA. Rest is their talent. I have no contribution in training them as actors or guiding them how to shape their careers. They will have to figure that out by themselves," he said.
