Shruti Haasan started 2020 with a bang. Her first film of the year, Krack turned out to be a blockbuster, and she’ll soon be seen alongside Pawan Kalyan and Prabhas in Vakeel Saab and Salaar respectively. Then, there’s Laabham, where she’s paired opposite Vijay Sethupathi, slated for release soon in Tamil.
While Krack and Salaar are action dramas, both Vakeel Saab and Laabham deal with important social issues. Explaining why Vakeel Saab, which deals with women’s safety and rights, is an important film, in a recent interview, Shruti said, “I feel it’s important to make statements through cinema. Vakeel Saab is the remake of Pink and it’s an important film. And then, if you have someone like Pawan Kalyan who can influence the masses, it’s great. Anybody in a position of influence using it to provoke thought is powerful.” The actress also stated that Laabham, which deals with farmers issues, will resonate with people since it deals with a current topic.
In the past, Shruti had teamed up with Pawan Kalyan in Gabbar Singh and it went on to become a blockbuster. With Vakeel Saab releasing in April, there’s a lot to look forward to for the actress who says that she’s willing to take more risks. “I’ve become more courageous with my choices now,” she says.
