Ill-health caused by fatigue makes Shruti miss ‘Waltair Veerayya’ event

Hyderabad– Shruti Haasan is gearing up for two big-ticket releases this week with ‘Waltair Veerayya’ starring Chiranjeevi and ‘Veera Simha Reddy’ led by Balakrishna.

She could not, however, be a part of the ‘Waltair Veerayya’ pre-release launch. According to unit sources, Shruti could not make it to the event due to ill-health brought on by fatigue and exertion.

Shruti had a hectic 2022 and spent most of last year shooting for her various projects across industries.

According to sources close to her, Shruti hasn’t been 100 per cent fit since the Greece schedule of her International film ‘The Eye’, as it was a physically gruelling shoot and she was practically living out of a suitcase for more than four months because of back-to-back shoots.

Despite this, she ensured that she was back on sets to complete the shoot for her January releases so as to not hamper their release in any way.

Tollywood’s ‘Mega Star’ Chiranjeevi, who’s opposite Shruti in ‘Waltair Veerayya’, praised her for her professionalism as she completed the film’s shooting as per schedule despite being under the weather.

Fans of the actress were worried about her health after she put out a status on her social media accounts ruing the fact that she could not be part of the ‘Waltair Veeraaya’ event, but she assured them that with adequate rest and medication she will be back soon.

Apart from ‘Waltair Veerayya’ and ‘Veera Simha Reddy’, Shruti’s 2023 releases includes ‘The Eye’ and ‘Salaar’.

Yami would love to play her ‘favourite actress’ Madhubala in biopic

Mumbai– Actress Yami Gautam Dhar envisions doing a biopic of the iconic and her “favourite” actress Madhubala.

When asked whose biopic she would like to do, Yami said: “The most beautiful one would be Madhubala ji. I know that there are some films being announced, but it’s nothing to do with those announcements.”

She added: “I have always said this in my makeup room, because I used to watch her songs at night. So at night, I have this habit till date, of watching either some old songs or some old interviews.”

“It could be Madhubala ji’s to Smita ji’s interviews, and my God! How well-spoken they were. I wish again, one of those actors were still alive. There was so much more that was left to be seen and I wish she was here today, because she’s one of my most favourite actors.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Yami has more power-packed performances lined up with projects like ‘Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga’, ‘OMG2’ and ‘Dhoom Dham’ among other unannounced projects. (IANS)
