Height. 5′ 8″
This damsel has her mother’s eyes….she is immensely talented…she is blessed with delicate features and if I was to describe her looks in a single word….I would say she is truly ‘mesmerizing’! Welcome to the world of Shruti Hasan!
Sarika and Kamal Hassan were blessed with this angel on the 28th of January in the year 1986 when they were living in Chennai, (in Tamil Nadu, India). born to parents who are multi talented, it doesn’t surprise me at all that shruti is good at everything that she sets her mind to do….be that modeling, be it acting, be it as a singer or a music composer….this young lady has done it all! Another beautiful person in shruti’s life is Akshara, shruti’s sister who represents the country (India) nationally for what is known as Ballroom Latin dancing! In the year 2000, shruti’s parents took a call to separate and go their own way.
Shruti attended school in a place called Lady Andal, in Chennai and thereafter she decided to move to Mumbai with the intention of studying Psychology (which she planned to do from St Andrews College). it seems like shruti is as versatile as it can get….she had bigger dreams and aspirations and decided to move to California so that she could involve herself in studying music from the Musicians Institute. You can also catch a glimpse of this gorgeous face on the cover of magazines such as Verve and /frappe! Beat that!
Shruti’s was only six when she recorded a song for the first time for Thevar Magan (for her gather) and it was an Ilaiyaraaja composition. Next came her debut singing for a Hindi movie titled Chachi 420 and this happened to be a duet, where her father joined in. the film ‘Hey Ram’ saw Shruti sang various versions (title theme)- in Tamil and Hindi and the song was titled ‘Rama Rama’….once again it was sung along with Shruti’s father. It turns out that the Ilayaraaja album received critical praise and also won shruti accolades!
K. J. Yesudas (a veteran singer) joined Shruti for a film titled En Mana Vaanil (in the year 2002) which was for Ilaiyaraaja’s music. She’s also worked done work with Gautham Menon for his Vaaranam Aayiram where the composition was by Harris Jayaraj. Shruti (in the year 2008) was busy wrapping up her debut album (untitled) where she has not only sung the tracks, but has also composed and written them herself! This album was to be released somewhere in 2009. She has also sung a track for her own movie Luck.
September 2010 saw Shruti collaborating with Dave Kushner and the project was for the film titled Hisss. The lyrics for this track were written by Shruti and it was a Whilst Kushner composition…. Shruti also sang this track and featured in the promotional video.
Shruti is very versatile…she is not only interested in composing music, singing and acting, but she has also tried her hand at modeling. In September 2007, shruti featured in Frappe! Magazine as well as Verve.
Shruti’s debut in Bollywood came with a film titled Luck where she was paired opposite /Imran Khan and which was a Soham Shah film. This film gathered quite a lot of publicity before its release, but failed to be so promising at the box office. Shruti debuted in Telugu films in the year 2011 (January), where she was cast opposite Siddharth and the film was titled Anaganaga O Dheerudu, which is a Prakash Kovelamudi’s direction. This movie was a Walt Disney Pictures co-production, yet it turned out to be unsuccessful commercially.
Shruti Hassan has also done a voice over for a HIV/AIDS teaching animated software tutorial that has been created by TeachAIDS (a non-profit organization).

Shruti finalized a deal to be the music composer for a Tamil movie titled Unnaipol Oruvan that released sometime in the year 2009. Next came a bilingual, which was the remake of a successful Hindi movie, A Wednesday! However, the soundtracks for these two projects are totally separate. Not just this, this young lady also happens to be the vocalist in a alternative rock band called The Extramentals.
