Shruti Haasan recently revealed in an interview with Mumbai Mirror that the Haasan family is self-isolating in different places. This includes dad Kamal Haasan, mother Sarika and sister Akshara Haasan. "All of us had different travelling schedules and it didn't make sense for us to isolate together. That's the decision I feel people should make," Shruti had revealed to MM. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Pinkvilla, which was taken a while back, we had asked the Welcome Back star to reveal her favourite TV show, to which Haasan had a very popular answer to give.

"My favourite series is Peaky Blinders. I love that show because I like the lead actor Cillian Murphy. He's a favourite. I feel it's lovely how they created this world and usually... I've never been a fan of series like The Sopranos... these 'man-man' shows but Peaky Blinders is such an amazing series," the 34-year-old actress revealed. Peaky Blinders, as many know, is a popular British drama created by Steven Knight and stars Cillian as Tommy Shelby, who is the notorious leader of the gangster gang, Peaky Blinders.
