Actor Shruti Haasan says her dad, actor Kamal Haasan, brings positivity when he is on the sets. The actor adds she is honoured to share screen space with father Kamal Haasan in upcoming trilingual action-comedy Sabash Naidu.
The Welcome Back actor, who began the shooting on Tuesday, took to Twitter to share her excitement. “Fantastic first day of shoot -- so honoured to be working with my father -- he brings so much positivity and passion to a set #sabashnaidu,” the 30-year-old actor wrote.

There are reports that a Tamil Dalit association has filed a complaint against Kamal’s movie at the collector’s office in Coimbatore, alleging that the movie only promotes one caste over the others.
The association has also asked the collector to stall the shooting of the movie.
Kamal, however, tweeted that shooting started smoothly. “First day’s shooting going smoothly for the two Naidus and one Kundu. Great dancers great crew,” he added. For the movie, Ilaiyaraaja and Haasan are joining hands after a gap of 10 years.
Sabash Naidu is a spin-off of Kamal’s 2008 film Dasavatharam. It will be shot simultaneously in three languages -- Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.
The film also features Shruti Haasan, Ramya Krishnan, Roger Narayanan and Brahmanandam (Saurabh Shukla in its Hindi version). While Shruti will play Haasan’s reel daughter, Ramya Krishnan will be seen as the wife. Popular star comedian Brahmanandam will play Haasan’s sidekick in the film, which will be directed by TK Rajeev Kumar.
