Papa doesn't preach to Shruti Hassan

Wise Words

“I have never given any tips or advice to Shruti, as I would not like to be advised at her age. She has taken her own course, she could have very well taken up music instead of acting. If she asks for advice, then probably I could give her some reference points,” says the Tamil superstar.

Shruti made her debut in Bollywood this year with Luck, which did not do well at the box office. And now the  actress is composing the music for her father’s next film Unnaipol Ooruvan, a Tamil adaptation of Niraj Pandey’s A Wednesday. She has also roped in her sister Akshara to choreograph a video for the same. “Shruti is trained in classical music, although she is more into Rock and Jazz. Akshara has just started off, and she has a long way to go,” says the doting father. Although Unnaipol Ooruvan is a remake of A Wednesday, Hassan insists that his version of the film is different. The 55-year-old actor who debuted with Kalathoor Kannammaa as a child artiste in 1960 has acted in about 150 films in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi and Bengali.
