Actor Shruti Haasan, who features in both the Pongal releases, Veera Simha Reddy and Waltair Veerayya, recently spoke about how she celebrated the festival with her family and close friends. "Sankranthi was amazing with two big film releases and I also made Pongal and served them to my friends and family in Mumbai, except my pet and my boyfriend Shantanu Hazarika as they don't like it,” the actor was quoted as saying in an interview with ETimes.
The south star also opened up about working with Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna in the Telugu films and added, "It's not about being comfortable. When one works with senior actors, one gets to learn a lot from them. And working with both Chiranjeevi sir and Balayya sir has been the most cherishing and learning experience for me.”
