Crooning to glory

PASSIONATE PERFORMER: Shruti Hassan

Shruti Hassan, who will soon be making her debut in the upcoming action adventure Luck surely has talent written all over her. While the leggy beauty seems to be grabbing eye balls for her sleek and stylish look in the promos of Luck, she seems to have won the hearts of audiences down South with her singing skills too.

Shruti has been given the Best New Vocalist Award by the Tamil music industry for a song that she sang for renowned director Gautam Menon’s film Vaaranam Aayiram which also stars south superstar Surya. And here’s good news for all those eagerly waiting to watch her in Soham Shah’s Luck — the audience will also get to see Shruti crooning to the title track Aazma Luck in a special video featured on her.

Word has it, the director Soham Shah, who had attended Shruti’s concert in Mumbai was mighty impressed with her and wanted to incorporate the same energy into the film. And thanks to Soham’s vision, the music directors Salim Sulaiman came up with a unique and electrifying version of the title song which brought out Shruti’s rock-star image.

Going all the way to give it an authentic feel, they even had a band in the song and the lyrics is a blend of Hindi and English. Shot in Filmcity over a period of two days, Shruti epitomises the rock-star look with costumes styled by Binal Shah.

Says the sizzling debutant, “I had lots of fun. I could really be myself, the way I am on-stage. It’s a team effort and Soham’s vision that came through. I was glad to be a part of it.” And on asking her about her experience filming it, she enthuses, “The sets were buzzing with energy. I got to jump around and really enjoyed the entire experience.” Looks like Shruti seems to be hitting all the right notes.
