Leading Tamil actress Shruti Haasan has released a new independent song titled 'Monster Machine' and took part in a special interview with National Award-winning film critic Baradwaj Rangan, the Editor-in-Chief of Galatta Plus, to talk about the process of the conceptualization of the track to its realisation. She also opens up on how the team of her upcoming film, Salaar, starring Prabhas under Prashanth Neel's direction and featuring cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda, helped her with the production of her song, while also sharing her thoughts about her international film, The Eye

Speaking about being a part of Salaar, Shruti said, "It's a big project. It's a really weird thing, but I aim now to follow my instinct as a person and say, 'Okay, I'm going to enjoy working with these people. So, I'm going to approach this and give them my warmth and, give my generosity of... I'll give you my hand. Let's do this together.' And, that's something I've learned only later in my career, and I wish I'd have done that [earlier]." Shruti added, "Whether it's Salaar or The Eye, for example, which has a female writer, director, and producer... It got the Best Film and Best Director awards in Greece... [It's] so amazing for us that the woman leading our team got a recognition. I won't say an award. For me, whether it's The Eye, which is an independent English film, or Salaar, the energy towards it is the same. And, when I meet people halfway, who are loving and giving and generous of spirit, I really enjoy the process so much." 

Shruti Haasan continued, "So, I have to say Prashanth sir has been one of the most wonderful people I've worked with. He creates this large world, but he's like the simplest, chillest of people, genuinely. Prabhas is an absolute darling. I've had so much fun. Now, coming to Bhuvan [Gowda] sir, he shot this video [Monster Machine], and the Salaar unit allowed me to use parts of the sets they didn't use, to shoot my music video. Because they're not just saying, 'Be the heroine of our film.' They're saying, 'Be our friend and how can we support you creatively.' And, so, I found this little community of friends. So, Dwarakesh is the director of the music video, and we all sat down and conceptualized it together. We were like, 'Where do we shoot it?' And then, Bhuvan sir mentioned how a portion of the Salaar sets wasn't used, which is not in the film. Then, Prashanth sir was kind enough to say, 'Use our production manager. Is it your production? Are you doing it?' And, I said, 'Yes, I'm doing it. It's all my production.' So, he said, 'No, no, use ours.' That's the first time I felt, 'Oh, this is how people get together and make dreams come true.' So, it was really beautiful."
