Shruti Haasan is raring to go as two of her films, D-DAY and RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA are up for release. What's more, both the films are releasing on the same day, i.e. 19th July.

Ask her if it's a deliberate move to make a mark in Bollywood and she says, ''I don't know if there's any strategy that works. I wasn't avoiding Bollywood. I had South commitments. I have always looked at it as Indian Cinema. It just so happened coincidentally that both films are releasing on the same day. I'm very happy because they are completely different films and the characters are also very different.''

Shruti has no worries about both the films eating each other's share. ''I am in both movies so you have to talk to the producers about that. Either way, it's not bad for me.''

Paired opposite Arjun Rampal in D DAY, Shruti is playing a prostitute in the film. It's believed that she has a lot of intimate scenes with Arjun in the film. Ask her if she's comfortable in doing them and she says, ''I just feel that if it's integral to the film, the actors will feel comfortable. If it's forced into the narrative for either shock value or titillation, then it is going to come across negatively. But the intimate scenes in D DAY are an essential part of the character. She's playing a prostitute who's in love with Arjun Rampal's character. Their whole relationship is based on physicality. The emotionality and the sensitivity comes at a later stage. I think it's dealt with a great amount of aesthetics and sensitivity and also a great deal of emotional depth from the director's point of view. So I think that's come across well. In fact, I was extremely comfortable with Arjun. That was an added bonus.''

In the same vein, she says, ''People don't make babies by holding hands. There's always a stigma and taboo attached (to sex). In my head, as a modern woman, it isn't. As an audience in the films I watch, I feel if it's naturally there as a part of the narrative, it makes sense. Frankly I think, cinema is a representation of life. That's what you are doing in an honest way. Not just me, I think a lot of people are comfortable with it because it's a natural progression. Having said that, it has to done well otherwise it can go wrong.''
