Shruti Hassan’s stalker caught on CCTV

The stalker who attacked Shruti Hassan at her Mumbai flat when she was all alone in her abode was identified on CCTV, installed at the housing complex. Police carried out the investigation after the actress filed a complaint at Bandra police station on November 19. It was reported that the unknown man was following her for couple of days before he finally attacked her at her residence. Shruti was shaken with the incident but now she is fine.

"I'm doing fine and thankyou for the concern," she tweeted late that night.

Shruti was attacked around 9:30 am on 19th November morning. Her publicist broke the shocking news.

“A young man rang the doorbell of her house. As Shruti was alone at home and had just woken up, she opened the door thinking it might be the maid. But she saw this guy who tried to grab her throat; she banged the door close. The guy hurt his hand and ran away. Shruti is shaken by the incident and has been throwing up all day and been unwell,” her publicist said.

When HT contacted Shruti, she said: “I have nothing to say, please contact my publicist.” Her spokesperson said:  “Two days ago, the same guy was spotted on the sets of her movie shoot in Filmcity. He had tried to talk to her and even walk with her from her van to the set, saying, 'Madam, you don’t recognise me.'

Shruti’s staff then had pushed him away. Later they had seen him on the sets of her other films, Ramaiya Vastavaiya and D-day. They did not know that he had been stalking her for a while as she keeps shuttling between south and Mumbai for her film assignments.”

After the incident, Shruti has moved into her friend’s house and she will be leaving with her friend until everything settles down. Shruti is the elder daughter of veteran actors, Kamal Hassan and Sarika.
