Kamal Haasan now works to re-launch daughter Shruti

Mumbai: First it was mom Sarika whose good friends were used to launch daughter Shruti Haasan`s career in Hindi cinema. Now, apparently dad Kamal has taken over the responsibility to put his daughter`s career on the right track in Bollywood.

Her first first attempt at stardom in `Luck` was a big fiasco. So now `Ghajini` director A.R. Murugadoss has been asked to create an impressive re-launch film for the pretty actress.

Murugadoss admits that his multilingual film `Ezham Arivu` (`The Seventh Sense`) is planned as a re-launch for Shruti in Bollywood.

"It is a medical thriller with some of the most costly special effects ever done in southern cinema. We want to take the sci-fi to a new level in the South. Shruti has a very powerful role and yes, we`re hoping it would launch her career in Hindi cinema," said Murugadoss.

The story goes that Murugadoss had gone to Kamal Haasan to collaborate on a project. Instead Kamal suggested that he work with Shruti whose experience in Mumbai was far from satisfying.

That`s how Murugadoss ended up signing Shruti opposite Suriya in the Tamil `Ezham Arivu` (`The Seventh Sense`). Originally the film was meant to be in Tamil and Telugu. But now a Hindi version is also being made. It will be made in Tamil Nadu.

The actress` Hindi launch `Luck` starred Imran Khan, a close family friend of Sarika`s and Shruti`s. Sarika and her two daughters used to stay with Imran`s mom during her earlier visits to Mumbai.
