Mumbai: Filmmaker Prabhudheva, who has cast Shruti Haasan in "Ramaiya Vastavaiya", says he is no one to "relaunch" the daughter of veteran actress Kamal Haasan.
"It`s not a relaunch! Shruti is Kamal Haasan`s daughter. Who am I to relaunch her," Prabhudheva told IANS.
Shruti has earlier featured in Bollywood films like "Luck" and "Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji", which didn`t manage to elicit the expected response. But Prabhudheva had his reasons to cast the actress in his directorial.
"I was confused whether to take a new girl or an established actress, but Shruti looked perfect for the role. You will realise why I cast Shruti once you see the film. She is beautiful, (and as a) dancer she is superb," he said,
"Ramaya Vastavaiya", releasing July 19, also features Girish Kumar.
