Marking yet another milestone in her international musical career, actress Shruti Haasan performed a low-key gig on January 25 at The Troubadour, a London music hotspot that has hosted Adele, Elton John, Bob Dylan, and Ed Sheeran among others.

Haasan had earlier performed at The Ned.

The Troubadour gig was organised by Benny D of PowerStudio, a producer who has worked with superstars like Stormzy, Adele, Kylie Minogue, The Killers, Lily Allen and Robbie Williams.

Calling Haasan an “exceptional talent” Benny D said her unique voice has the ability to bring down the house.

“There’s so much great music in India and it’s brilliant for the industry that it’s beginning to make its way over to London. Everyone who’s seen Shruti perform is really excited for the release of her music, she’s definitely got a great future ahead!” he said.

Haasan, meanwhile, said she enjoys working in London as it feels like a second home.

Shas been working with a number of well-known producers in the UK and the US to develop an EP that will be released later this year.

“While India will always be an important market when it comes to my music and films, it’s important for me as an artiste to secure a global perspective on the English music I’m currently working on,” the 33-year-old singer said.

Ian Williamson , Director of Happenings at The Troubadour, said : “We have a history of hosting some of the best artists from all around the world, and we’re delighted to continue that tradition by having Shruti perform on Friday night. It was an exceptional and totally unique performance which blended Western and Indian sounds seamlessly, appealing to everyone in the crowd.”
