It's all quiet on Shruti Haasan front for the Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji promotions
Shruti Haasan has been conspicuous by her absence from the promotions of Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji. The singer-actress features in the movie opposite Emraan Hashmi.
While the rest of the cast Ajay Devgn, Omi Vaidya, Shazahn Padamsee, Shraddha Das and Hashmi have done their bit, Kamal Haasan's daughter has been silent about her project.
Says a source, "Considering her debut Hindi film Luck with Imran Khan did not fare well, she should have been looking forward to her second coming.
But strangely, she has chosen to be quiet about Madhur Bhandarkar's comic caper."
The actress appears in the film halfway through just before the interval. She essays the role of Niki, an industrialist's daughter, who is keen on bettering society through social work.
Buzz was that Shruti stayed away from the promotions as she felt that her role did not turn out be that great.
In the movie, Tisca Chopra, who essays the role of her stepmother, is there throughout the film. Almost till the interval, the audience wonders if Shruti is part of the cast or not!
Her spokesperson maintains, "Shruti's Tamil film opposite Suriya demanded all of her dates from December-end to February first week. She has been shooting in Chennai and overseas.
As a result, she couldn't promote DTBHJ as much as he would've wanted to. She was looking forward to promoting the film but was really upset that the promotional dates clashed with her Tamil movie schedule."
The spokesperson adds, "For her, working in a Madhur Bhandarkar's film was an honour, so she was really upset that she couldn't align herself to their publicity schedule."
"But," the source states, "it is indeed strange that Shruti did not fly down even for its music launch or any other function related to the flick even earlier."
Maybe for Shruti, it was a case of Dil Na Kehta Hai Ji!
Shruti Haasan celebrates her birthday today. The actress turns 25 and is having a working birthday as she is shooting for her Tamil film.
