She is at the top of her game in Tollywood at the moment but Shruti Haasan, daughter of legendary actor Kamal Haasan and actress Sarika, was always skeptical about her options in the industry. The reason: she thought she was "too ugly" to be an actress.
The 'Luck' beauty says she never found herself attractive enough to be a heroine. "I always wanted to be an actress, but I thought I was too ugly to be in front of the camera. I was more into sports, outdoor activities and running around. But I always wanted to be in the entertainment business," said Shruti who is also an accomplished singer.
The 27-year-old, who has had a string of hits down south, will now have two releases on June 19, 'D-Day' and 'Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya'. "It is a good coincidence," 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 very 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, unconventional journey so far. My journey has taught me a lot. There have been successes and failures and I have learnt from both of them."
