March 5, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Actress, musician Shruti Haasan is planning to form a new musical band in Mumbai where she has rented an apartment. She has been discussing prospective projects with leading music directors, sources say. Shruti received appreciation for her musical debut in Unnai Pol Oruvan.
Kamal Hassan’s daughter may not have made much of a mark in Bollywood with her debut in Luck, but she does not seem to have lost heart. This time, she is back in a new avatar– that of a music director.
“I am so elated with the appreciation I have received for my musical debut, in ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’,” she enthuses. “Now I have decided to work simultaneously on my music and my acting. I have been listening to various scripts, and none of them struck me as special,” she pouts.
Although she has denied any link-up with Siddharth, who was seen with her at the 55th Filmfare Awards, we wonder if her shifting to Mumbai has anything to do with him.
