Shruti Haasan to star opposite Emran Hashmi in ‘Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji’

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!
