Shruti Haasan has been roped in for a role in the American TV series Treadstone.
An action drama, this one is based on the Bourne film series. It revolves around the origin and present-day functioning of a CIA Black ops program called ‘Treadstone’, which trains its recruits to become nearly superhuman assassins.
Penned by Heroes creator Tim Kring, the series stars Jeremy Irvine, Brian J. Smith, Omar Metwally and Tracy Ifeachor.
Shruti plays Nira Patel, a young girl whose job as a waitress in Delhi serves as a cover for her double life as a trained assassin. Shruti will start shooting for the show in July.
Meanwhile, Shruti Haasan is back to Tamil cinema after a break and will star opposite to Vijay Sethupathi in ‘Laabam’.
