The newest celebrity in town to contract COVID-19 is Shruti Haasan. According to the Salaar actress' most recent Instagram post, she has recovered from the virus and is back to work. 'Back to work,' she captioned a selfie she took while wearing her mask. Fans have been sending good wishes for the actor's improved health for the past few days. All seemed to be well in the hood now, as Shruti Haasan has recovered.

Meanwhile, Shruti Haasan spoke to a news portal in an exclusive interview. When asked if she has experienced sexism, she said, 

“OMG, so much, especially at the beginning of my career. They said your face is not like a face girl next door, you will never fit into any part. I'm really happy that I have come across many who said 'she will never' to 'she belongs here'. In many situations, they were like she will never be a successful movie star. When I started into my independent space, people were like they will not pay to watch this and I took it all the way to London.”

She further added,

“I remember during my first Telugu film, they used to call me iron leg and said she is really unlucky. The common factor between my first two films was the same hero,” Shruti said as she recalled that the first two Telugu movies she did featured the same male lead. However, everyone was quick to label her unlucky instead of looking at other reasons as to why the movie failed.” 

Shruti also spoke about the “ridiculous” pay parity that exists in the industry till date, adding that the difference in the amount the most successful female actor and most successful male actor gets is “ridiculous” and “unbelievable”.

On the work front, Shruti Haasan was last seen in the Amazon Prime Video web series Bestseller. Shruti will next star alongside Prabhas in Prashanth Neel’s action thriller Salaar. The highly talked about project is also likely to be divided into two parts, much like Allu Arjun’s Pushpa.

basherz 3 months ago She still can't act - so what roles would she get ? Her face may have gone atleast a dozen cosmetic surgeries by now (she admitted to getting work done on her face), if she's not insecure - why did she have them ? I don't agree with the Iron leg stuff either. Even Genelia had this tag until her hit of "Bommarillu", she became an overnight superstar post that.
