How Shruti Hassan bagged her first TV campaign Industry sources reveal that Amrita Rao was replaced by Kamal Hassan and Sarika’s eldest daughter, Shruti Hassan in the Walls ice cream commercial. The TV commercial was shot few weeks back featuring Shruti in her first ever ad campaign along with young musician cum actor Raghav Sachar. The single for which was released two days back as Ho Jaane De.

Sources inform, “Originally this particular TV commercial cum extended music video was to feature Amrita Rao with Pakistani band Jal singer Farhan Saeed but with diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan seeing a sea change post the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and the subsequent ban called upon by local political parties on Pakistani artists, the makers thought it would be best to replace the whole concept and rope two totally fresh faces. Shruti was chosen without any audition and since her background is music, the makers thought a musical personality would suit her perfectly. Therefore Raghav who had actually given the music for this commercial was roped in at the last minute. The post production for the ad is presently on and it shall be on air in a few days time.”

Shruti is presently shooting for Soham Shah’s Luck opposite Imran Khan and also for Leena Yadav’s Teen Patti starring Amitabh Bachchan and R. Madhavan. Raghav who had given music to films like Yash Raj’s Kabul Express and One Two Three is also planning to make a career in acting and has been taking acting classes. He was supposed to star in the Manzar song in Sunday but was replaced by Tusshar Kapoor.
