Shruti Haasan

Shruti Rajalakshmi Haasan was born to actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika on 8 April 1985 in Chennai, India. She also has a younger sister named Akshara, who represents India nationally for Ballroom Latin dancing.

Haasan shifted her focus to cinema and music, and eventually travelled to the USA to continue to learn music at the Musicians Institute in California, before returning to Chennai.

She started her career as a singer and later turned to acting. She made her singing debut at an age of six when she sang for the veteran music composer Ilaiyaraaja. Her first song was featured in her father Kamal Hassan's film 'Thevar Mahan '. Her first Hindi song was featured in 'Chachi 420' directed by Kamal Hassan. She again sang for her father's critically acclaimed film 'Hey Ram' for which she sang the Hindi and Tamil versions of the song Rama Rama with her father, Kamal Hassan.

Shruti won accolades for her singing performance in Ilayaraaja's music album. Shruti Hassan considers herself fortunate enough to have got an opportunity to sing with legendary singer K J Yesudas for the movie 'En Mana Vaanil' in the song 'Roattorap paattuch chaththam'. Shruti has also sung under the composition of Harris Jayaraj for Gautham Menon's Tamil film 'Vaaranam Aayiram'.

Shruti made her acting debut at an age of fourteen in a cameo appearance in critically acclaimed ‘Hey Ram’. Directed by her father, Kamal Hassan, ‘Hey Ram’ was a biopic of Mahatma Gandhi, wherein Shruti was played the character of Vallabhbhai Patel’s daughter. Shruti refused a number of South Indian films including a lead role in Venkat Prabhu's ‘Saroja’.

Shruti signed Nishikanth Kamath's 'Endrendrum Punnagai' opposite R. Madhavan that later got shelved prior to production. Shruti was later seen in Soham Shah's 'Luck' alongside Imran Khan, Mithun Chakrobarty, Ravi Kishen, among others. Despite huge publicity, the film failed to do well at the box office and was ripped by the critics. The film also featured a song in the voice of Shruti Hassan that was later added to the soundtrack

Shruti Haasan, has most recently sung in a Tamil film, for Gautham Menon's Vaaranam Aayiram under the composition of Harris Jayaraj. As of November 2008, Haasan is also midway through her untitled debut album, which she has composed, written and sung, and is set for release in mid-2009.

After pursuing a career in singing, Shruti Haasan branched out a career into modelling. She started by starring appearing in the Frappe! magazine version of September 2007, since then she has gone on to appear in Verve.

In 2000, Haasan made her cinematic debut in the Tamil and Hindi bilingual film, Hey Ram, directed by her father. She made a cameo appearance as the daughter of Vallabhai Patel in the biopic of Mahatma Gandhi.

After rejecting prominent film offers, most notably the lead role in Venkat Prabhu's Saroja, reports suggested in late 2007 that Haasan was set to make her full debut as a heroine in 2008 with a movie opposite Madhavan directed by Nishikanth Kamath. Despite Madhavan admitting that the news "was premature", she signed up to the film, which was titled, Endrendrum Punnagai, only to be stalled prior to production. Eventually Haasan signed up to Soham Shah's Luck opposite Imran Khan, a Bollywood film.
