Their approach and outlook to life is refreshing. Our Lady J is one such woman who has inspired me."

Speaking of her love of music, did you Shruti Haasan is a trained singer? In an interview with mid-day, Shruti had said, "My songs are personal. In different situations, we [become] different individuals. With music, I am my true self. The genres that I perform fall under alternative [music].
