I thought I'm too ugly to be an actress: Shruti Haasan

Mumbai, May 21, 2013, (IANS) :

Actress Shruti Haasan, daughter of legendary actor Kamal Haasan and actress Sarika, always wanted to be in showbiz, but was skeptical about facing the camera because she didn't find herself attractive enough to be a heroine.

"I always wanted to become actress, but I always thought I am too ugly to be an actress. I was always in the sport, in the sun and always running around. I always thought heroines are so beautiful how will I be that beautiful? But I always wanted to be in the entertainment business. I always wanted to act, sing and be a part of it," said Shruti who also sings.

The 27-year-old, who made her debut with Hindi movie "Luck", will have two releases on June 19 - "D-Day" and "Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya".


"It is good it just so happened," she said about the simultaneous release of her two films and added: "I am happy that both are polar opposite films. For me, both the characters are so different from each other. In a weird way, it is nice that both the films are coming out on the same day. It just shows the range," she said.

The actress, who has featured in more than half-a-dozen films so far, including Telugu movie "Anaganaga O Dheerudu", finds her journey unconventional.

"It's been a kind of different journey. It is not a conventional journey of a star. I have never been a conventional person. My journey has taught me a lot. There has been success and failure - they both taught me a lot. It's my journey and hopefully, will return more colours."
