Filmmaker Prabhu Deva, who has cast Shruti Haasan in "Ramaiya Vastavaiya", says he is no one to "relaunch" the daughter of veteran actress Kamal Haasan.

"It's not a relaunch! Shruti is Kamal Haasan's daughter. Who am I to relaunch her," Prabhu Deva told IANS.

Shruti has earlier featured in Bollywood films like "Luck" and "Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji", which didn't manage to elicit the expected response. But Prabhudheva had his reasons to cast the actress in his directorial.

"I was confused whether to take a new girl or an established actress, but Shruti looked perfect for the role. You will realise why I cast Shruti once you see the film. She is beautiful, (and as a) dancer she is superb," he said,

"Ramaya Vastavaiya", releasing July 19, also features Girish Kumar.

    Seriously that movie was very well received in both Telugu and Tamil version. I hope it does well in hindi as well.
    Wish all the best to Shruti Hassan!

    I have watched this movie in tamil, and it's really good entertainmant movie.. I love it.. Even the original version was made by PD, so I think it will be a hit in hindi as well. Finger crossed. Sruthi Hassan has acted alot of movies in south, so why are you calling it a re-launch?!
