It is known that Shruti Haasan and Naga Chaitanya are starring in Majnu, which is the Telugu remake of Malayalam hit film Premam. In this upcoming film, Shruti has to look old enough to be Chai's professor.
According to the birth dates mentioned by both of them in their public profiles, Shruti is just over 10 months older than Naga Chaitanya. But for the sake of the role, the actress decided to give up the glam stakes, the reports indicate.
A source informs that, "Chai plays an engineering student who falls in love with his professor played by Shruti. When approached for the role, she saw the original film and fell in love with the character. In fact she has done a lot of homework on her own to get the look right. Director Chandoo Mondeti was pleasantly surprised with her drive."
