It has been over a year since Shruti Haasan made her last appearance on the big screen and the actor says it was a conscious decision to stay away from the camera as she wanted to reassess her career.

Shruti, 32, who is the elder daughter of veteran actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika, says she took the decision to take a break to “reorganise” herself. “I took a conscious decision to take a break for one year. I thought it was important to take a break and reassess what I wanted to do. I believe when you get in to a rut you need to reassess,” Shruti told PTI.

The actor is now working on a Hindi as well as a Tamil movie and is venturing into production in a partnership with her mother. “I am producing films and getting back into music fulltime. So, I needed to step back and kind of reorganize things. I believe it is important for an artiste to take some time off to be with themselves. “I have been in films, but I always feel like an outsider. I think that’s my strength and my weakness. But I like to keep it to myself and do my job. I am not someone to look back and think about it,” she added.

Shruti Haasan says she would love to act with her mother, veteran actress Sarika, in a film. “I want to work with my mum. We run a production house and we just started working together...I worked with my father several times, I would love to act with my mum,” Shruti told.
