Shruti Haasan is soon set to make a splash on the international music scene. We have got to know that the actor will collaborate with a British alternative rock band called Dinosaur Pile-Up. She will be singing and co-writing songs with them. The tracks will be part of the outfit’s upcoming album.
An insider says, “Shruti has gone to London, UK, a couple of times, and has been meeting and jamming with the band members — lead singer and guitarist Matt Bigland, drummer Mike Sheils and bassist Jim Cratchley. She spent time with them and enjoyed their music, and felt that it was in line with her own musical choices.” The source adds that Shruti, who has also written songs for her former band, The Extramentals, in the past, made sure that she brainstormed on the lyrics for the tracks with the members of the British band. “Shruti is a complete musician, as she is someone who writes, composes and sings her own songs,” says the insider.
While the Welcome Back (2015) star has also been working on several film projects, she wants to dedicate a sizable chunk of her time to making music this year. The insider adds, “Shruti has had a crazy schedule of late. She is shooting for two Tamil and Telugu films, and she is working on the pre-production of her trilingual movie with her father, Kamal Haasan. She is also taking care of her brand endorsements and magazine shoots.”
Shruti was not available for a comment, but her spokesperson confirmed her collaboration with the band.
