Shruti Haasan has always shared a close camaraderie with director Nishikant Kamat. She was supposed to make her Bollywood debut with his film. However, that project didn’t work out. But Shruti will now be making a special appearance in Nishikant’s upcoming film, which has John Abraham in the lead. It was earlier reported that she would be playing the female lead in the movie. However, now we have come to know that the two had spoken about her role, and it has been finalised that Shruti’s character will be presented as a special appearance.

A source reveals, “Shruti has always appreciated Nishikant’s work, and loved this film’s story too. She agreed to be part of the film in a heartbeat. After having begun the year with a successful film opposite Akshay Kumar, Shruti is all set for her upcoming films in Bollywood and in the south.”

The source adds that “despite her busy schedule, she agreed to be part of the film.” The source says, “She and Nishikant always knew that even though it is a powerful character, it does deserve a different credit than that of the lead. Hence, after much conversation, they have mutually agreed on the special appearance credit for Shruti.”
