Filmfare ME: Presenting our August issue featuring Bollywood star Shruti Haasan on the cover

As we adapt to the new ‘normal’ so do our celebs. And our cover-girl, Shruti Haasan shows how to do it with style for our Eid Special Edition. Experiment has always been a key for Shruti Haasan and the stunner used it with aplomb as she shot for our cover in what’s a unique never-before experience! Check out the star rocking the masked look, as we call it ‘Life is a Masquerade’ indeed. The young star in a tell-all with Editor-in-Chief Manju Ramanan revealed her experience of shooting for the cover in a Hyderabad studio, adhering to strict distancing norms and sanitizing rules.

“In a one-of-its kind cover, that represents the ebullient human spirit that refuses to cower down when faced with terse situations, like the current pandemic, Shruti Haasan braved it all for the shoot,” shares Manju Ramanan, adding, “The studio was sanitized and cleaned up before the skeletal team that included the photographer, styling assistant, Shruti’s manager and Shruti shot for the cover.” But not just that, Shruti also reveals how she’s tried to make yellow work as she poses in a yellow outfit – a colour she’s rarely seen in. Our Sunshine girl – that’s Shruti Haasan for you as our cover-girl! Read the full interview where the sassy star shares her struggles and triumphs.

It’s also a Back to School issue as we celebrate the reopening of schools with stringent safety and health precautions in place. Check out the student must-haves as the academic sessions get underway. Also enjoy the Eid shopping as we present some great gifting ideas.

The issue is packed with loads of fashion, lifestyle and entertainment news and gets you your dose of cinema with the freshest in Bollywood, OTT and there’s a treat for movie-fans straight from Saudi Arabia too.
