Mumbai: Actress Shruti Hassan, who has made a place for herself in the southern film industry, says she was not avoiding Bollywood, rather commitments down south kept her busy. Shruti made her debut in Hindi films with a cameo appearance in her father Kamal Hassan's 'Hey Ram' in 2000.

She was seen in a full-fledged role in 'Luck' (2009) and then in Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji' (2011). However, both the films did not fare well at the box office. The actress feels that she is yet to make a mark in any film industry. "I haven't made my mark anywhere. I am very young and still starting out in the industry," Shruti said.

The actress is now looking forward to the release of her next two Hindi films, Prabhu Deva's 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' and Nikhil Advani's 'D-Day'. Shruti said that through these films, she is not looking to make a foothold in the Hindi film industry.

 "I don't know if there is any strategy that works. I was not avoiding Bollywood. I had commitments down south. I have always looked at it as Indian cinema. It just happened coincidentally that both the films are releasing together. But they are polar opposite films and characters," Shruti said.

"But I will be doing more Hindi films. You will get to see me more here," she added.
