Anushka and Shruti Hasan are the only two options before South Indian filmmakers when one has to work a script on socio-fantasy or historical genres. While Anushka moves to grab the opportunities with both hands delivering milestone films like Arundhati, Rudhramadevi, Baahubali 1 and Baahubali 2, here is Shruti Hasan showing her inability and clearly lost the battle to Sweety.
It is heard that Shruti Hassan came out from Sanghamitra project in Sundar C direction associated with 350+ Crores budget just because she felt the previous training part so restless and not her cup of tea. Horse riding, sword fighting, and expertise in martial arts are mandatory skills for Shruti to get into the skin of Sanghamitra.
As days progressed with this harsh and physically pummeling pedagogic teaching part, Shruti understood a bit late that doing glamorous parts with simple songs going around the hero is easier than believing in excellent and time taking projects like Sanghamitra. All is well. Shruti informed the producers immediately on her weakness and gave a middle drop.
One requires tremendous guts and solid commitment, dedication to holding with a project for years together. Shruti opted out from Sanghamitra project.
