Actress Shruti Haasan, who will be soon seen in the upcoming psychological thriller series ‘Bestseller,’ likes to keep some of her characters’ traits as a souvenir.
The actress is grateful for the opportunity to play a character which is as determined as she is. Shruti, who plays Meetu Mathur, an aspiring writer in the series, had this to say about it, â€œI always love to walk away with the mood or the fragrance or the memory of the character. And I think what I got in this series is to meet another character that is really determined. So, I love remembering those experiences (while shooting for ‘Bestseller’).”
Drawing parallels between her real life persona and the character, she said: “I found it really interesting to play a part like Meetu because her arc is so interesting. The common thing if I had to say is that Meetu is a fan and a determined woman.”
Talking about the fun she had behind-the-scenes, Shruti said, “I had to do a scene where I would sit under a running shower, and we were shooting at the peak of winter season (in Rajasthan) and you know how cold it gets out there. The shot was ready and to my horror I realised that there was no hot water available. “
â€œSo, there I was, sitting in the freezing cold shower, trying to get the emotions on my face right while I quite literally froze”, She said.
“We have a scene where Satyajeet and I had to ride atop a truck and while we shot for it, there were gaps in shooting as the truck had to turn around on the highway and get back to the start location. Guess what we decided to do while that was happening? Satyajeet and I kept dancing on top of the truck and it was so much fun.”Shruti added.
