Madhur Bhandarkar is all set to perform ‘Operation Salvage’ on Shruti Haasan’s career. In what is quite clearly a manoeuvre to give the mighty Kamal Haasan’s daughter a commercial boost that Soham Shah’s Luck could not. Madhur Bhandarkar has signed her to play a key role in his first comedy Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji.
The self-admitted fan of Kamal Haasan, Madhur says, “Shruti had met me some months ago expressing a desire to work with me. I thought she would suit the part opposite Emran Hashmi perfectly.”
Though not willing to admit that Kamal Haasan had any hand in it, Bhandarkar does admit that he’s a great fan of the actor. “Kamalji is a legend. And I can’t say the thought of working with his daughter did not pass through my mind. However I must add that Shruti is a very bright pretty and talented girl. She’s bound to go far.”
Shruti’s career had come to a standstill with a film ironically called Luck. Maybe it will change, now that the daughter’s ball of destiny is in papa Kamal Haasan’s court!
