While some directors in Bollywood are known for their infamous tempers, Prabhu Deva is apparently a sweetheart to his actors. Shruti Haasan, who features in his next film, feels that though the choreographer-turned-director is a taskmaster, he doesn’t make his actors nervous in his presence.
The actress says, “I was happy to know that Prabhu is directing the film. He is a taskmaster but has a clear vision. He is easy to work with.” On working with Prabhu for the first time in this remake of a Telugu film, Shruti states, “Whenever I go in front of the camera, I become shameless. Prabhu taught me some interesting steps on the set. I just do as my director tells me.”
A bit earlier, Shruti’s father veteran actor Kamal Haasan had found himself in the middle of controversy regarding his latest release Vishwaroop. Without wanting to comment on the nitty-gritty of the matter, all that Shruti says on the subject is, “He was not in India when the entire issue was unfolding. I was constantly in touch with him and I am happy that the issue has been sorted out and the film has released. I have seen the film and have loved it.”
