Shruti Hassan Career
Shruti Hassan made her Bollywood debut with Soham Shah’s Hindi film Luck opposite Imran Khan in July 2008 and shot for the film for a close to a year. Imran Khan, her childhood friend, had advocated her name to the director and Shruti signed up after listening to the entire script and acknowledged to play a dual role in the action film. Shruti Hassan participated in action scenes during filming, while she also worked out to get a toned body for a sequence in which Shruti Hassan appears in a bikini in the film. The movie opened in July 2009 to unanimously poor reviews from critics and took a poor opening at the box office, with critics stating that Shruti “deserved a better launch vehicle”. Reviewers were sarcastic of her performance with Rajeev Masand of IBN stating that Shruti Hassan delivers “dialogues with deadpan expressions”, while another critic added that she is “synthetic and fails to impress”.
Shruti Hassan’s second Hindi feature film was Madhur Bhandarkar’s romantic comedy Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, in which Shruti Hassan appeared in an extended guest appearance alongside an ensemble cast of Emraan Hashmi, Ajay Devgn and Shazahn Padamsee. The film portrayed her as Nikki Narang, the step-daughter of an ex Miss India model, with Hashmi’s character falling for both mother and daughter. Shruti’s performance gained poor responses from critics with a reviewer citing that her character has been “reduced to post-interval surfacing, last-ditch glamour” whilst another labelled hers as “so fake that she offers only disappointment”; however the film went on to become a commercial success at the box office.
