Shruti Haasan opts for Aamir Khan

Her breakup with her heartthrob Siddharth was the talk of the town recently. Shruti Haasan, the daughter of universal hero Kamal Haasan, is once again in the news for walking out of Jr NTR’S Tollywood flick Dammu.
If unit sources are to be believed, Shruti has opted out of Dammu after signing the movie and even shooting for it.
The reason? It seems that the Luck star is taken in by the comments of none other than Bollywood star Aamir Khan. Aamir Khan reportedly watched Suriya’s 7 Aum Arivu — thanks to director A.R. Murugadoss, and was so impressed by the script that he is keen on remaking it in Hindi.
The actor/filmmaker has already tasted success with the remake of Ghajini — which was also directed by Murugadoss.
The intriguing news is that Aamir was also smitten by Shruti’s performance and apparently commented that (just like he chose Asin for his Hindi Ghajini) he would want her on board for the Bollywood version of 7 Aum Arivu.

Shruti, who had just commenced shooting for Dammu with Jr NTR, was on cloud nine when she heard about Aamir’s remarks.
She suddenly decided to opt out of NTR’s project — probably, to keep her dates free — in the hope of suddenly getting a call from the Lagaan star.
The source also adds that Boyapati Srinu, the director of the film is miffed with her and is looking out for a quick replacement. Yet another source informs us that the film unit is trying to convince Shruti to stay on and complete the film.
In the meanwhile, it seems that Shruti has complained about the unit stating that the film was making very slow progress and payments due to her had been withheld!
And, that’s not the only reason for her opting out of Daamu. An unconfirmed source informs DC that Shruti has been approached by ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam for his film on the Rameswaram fishermen.
The movie is touted to have Rajeev Menon behind the camera and A.R. Rahman composing the music. After all, working in a Mani Ratnam film would any day be a better bet for international recognition.
The earlier rumours were that Shruti’s sister Akshara would be the female lead, with Gautham, actor Karthick’s son, debuting as the hero.
Despite all efforts to talk to Shruti, she was not available for comments. Let’s wait to hear what the young star has to say in her defence!
