Shruti meets Neil Gaiman at Cannes 

The actress is said to be a huge fan of the famous English author

Published: 22nd May 2017

Shruti Haasan, who is currently at the Cannes Film Festival to promote her period film, Sangamithra, met Neil Gaiman, best known for writing American Gods, and dad Kamal Haasan shared the picture of the duo on his Twitter page.

A source says that the writer is one of Shruti's all-time favourites. "She follows his works extensively, and they had a chance to connect sometime ago over Twitter. When Neil realised Shruti was in Cannes, he invited her to attend the premiere of the film How to Talk to Girls at Parties as one of his special guests."

Neil has even said he'd pen a musical only if it stars Shruti. "I'd mentioned how much I want to visit India, and Shruti offered to help show me around the country. She's a huge fan of my writing, and has sent me lots of clips, both of her work in films and music, and of things and performers she thought I should see or would enjoy. And I, in turn, have sent her books and things to read ahead of the crowd. She's a delight - smart and grounded, and her music is remarkable."

Speaking about attending the premier on Neil's invitation, Shruti says, "I was super happy and loved the film."

The actress was seen at the festival with beau Michael Corsale.
