Shruti Hassan croons for AIDS awareness

MUMBAI: Singer and actress Shruti Haasan, daughter of actor-filmmaker Kamal Hassan, has given her voice for an online campaign for AIDS awareness.

The actress, who has crooned a number of tracks like 'Aazma - luck is the key', decided to support the campaign called Teach AIDS to spread the word especially among youth. The online campaign will be launched in collaboration with video-sharing site YouTube soon.

Shruti has given her voice in three languages to the animated video campaign, which spans information across all aspects of AIDS in a conversational manner. The video will be available in English, Tamil and Telugu.

"Shruti is someone who is considered to be a youth icon. Hence, when she was approached by the team to lend her voice to the campaign, it fit right in, simply because she had to build awareness for a cause she truly believes in and had to be herself while doing this," said a source.

The actress, who is tied up with her work commitments in Bollywood and southern film industry, managed to take some time out for a god cause.

Shruti has also sung for Arjun Kapoor-starrer-'Tevar' track 'Joganiyan', which has garnered positive reviews.
