Shruti Haasan heads to Hollywood
She will portray Nira Patel, a young woman in Delhi, whose waitress job serves as a cover for a dangerous double life as a trained assassin in the upcoming series, Treadstone
After Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, and Dhanush, Shruti Haasan is the latest to crossover to Hollywood. The 3 actor has been roped in to be a part of USA Network’s upcoming series, Treadstone, which will be based on the Jason Bourne universe. The studio had reportedly ordered a pilot for the series in April this year. The series is now scheduled to go on floors in August.
Shruti will portray Nira Patel, a young woman in Delhi, whose waitress job serves as a cover for a dangerous double life as a trained assassin. The actor-musician will share screen space with Jeremy Irvine and Brian J Smith in the show, which recently started production in Budapest. Actors Michelle Forbes, Patrick Fugit, Michael Gaston, and Tess Haubrich are also part of the cast.
Ben Smith, a producer of the Bourne franchise, has co-created the series with Tim Kring. The show will follow the fictional CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone — the program that created superspy Jason Bourne, played by actor Matt Damon in the four films.
Shruti, who was last seen in the 2017 film, Behen Hohi Teri, is currently working on Laabam, which also features Vijay Sethupathi in the lead.
