Shruti was last seen in 2012 Tamil films 3 and 7am Arivu. Both films didn't do well at the box office.
"I enjoyed working in Poojai. What's special about it is that I'm returning to Tamil industry. I need to thank Vishal for making me a heroine in the industry again," Shruti said at a promotional event in Chennai.
The daughter of Tamil star Kamal Haasan and actor Sarika doesn't have any qualms of being away from Tamil filmdom.
"I come from a multi-cultural family and I belong to Indian cinema. Therefore, I don't mind doing films in all languages. I don't want to restrict myself to one industry," she said.
Directed by Hari Gopalakrishnan, Poojai also features Sathyaraj, Renuka, Sithara and Jayaprakash in important roles.
