Shruti Hassan wanted to make sure she gives the best tribute to her dad Kamal Hassan. In her enthusiasm, the slim actress injured her knee while performing for a medley of Kamal's songs at the SIIMA awards 2013, held in Dubai recently.
Dancing and acting is in her genes, she said a few days ago. True to her words, Shruti wanted to show what a daredevil she can be at the awards function. The dance performance included certain acrobatic moves that required her to somersault.
In the process, she hurt her knee, but continued to perform. It was not until later that the viewers realized she injured herself, as her performance was not affected. A true professional, Shruti ensured the audience had a spectacular show. She is presently recovering from the injury.
