Shruti Haasan, during a recent interview with Zoom Digital, revealed how her parents’ divorce was a good thing as the two were not happy together. The Krack actress, who is closer to her dad Kamal Haasan, spoke about them being wonderful parents who didn’t get along and how it all panned out for the best. Kamal Haasan and Sarika tied the knot in 1988 and went their separate ways in 2004. They are parents to two daughters, Shruti and Akshara.

On Monday, Shruti Haasan spoke about her parents’ divorce during an interview. She said, “I was glad they separated, as I do not think two people who are not getting along should be forced to get along for some reason. They continue to be wonderful parents.”

The Luck actress also revealed that she is closer to her dad, Kamal Haasan, and her mum Sarika is an important part of her life. She said, “I am particularly close to my dad. My mum is doing well and is a part of our lives as well. It actually panned out for the best. They are both uniquely wonderful and beautiful people. They were not that beautiful together anymore. That does not take away their individual beauty as human beings. When they separated, I was very young, and it was very simple, they were happier apart than they were together.”

Shruti Haasan had revealed on Instagram recently how her boyfriend Santanu Hazarika and cat Clara are the best lockdown buddies. She also shared a collage of goofy pictures with Santanu where the two can be seen smiling for the camera. The couple have been staying together since the Janta Curfew was imposed in Mumbai due to the Covid-19 second wave. They even participated in a question and answer session with fans where they revealed their likes and dislikes and what they like to do at home during lockdown.

On the work front, Shruti is now waiting for the release of her upcoming Tamil film, Laabam, directed by late filmmaker SP Jananathan. She will also share screen space with Prabhas in Salaar. Directed by Prashanth Neel, it will be a pan-India film.
