She had two gigs lined up while in London and will be soon coming out with her original. And now, adding another feather to her cap, she is all set to enter Hollywood as she will star in an American television show called ‘Treadstone.’ Shruti is the first major South star to have bagged a Hollywood project. It is indeed a proud moment and we couldn’t be happier for the actress. Shruti will undergo hardcore training for her role of an assassin in the spin-off of Jason Bourne series.
Treadstone follows the original story and the present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Operation Treadstone.

As per the reports, the first season would explore the mysterious rise of sleeper agents across the globe for a deadly mission.

In an interview with an entertainment portal, the actress revealed how she bagged the part in the series. Shruti said, "When I started music in England, there was a lot of interest in me as an Indian actress, so I got an agent in the US and the UK. When I received an audition script from the show’s makers, I found it very interesting. I start shooting soon. My portions will be based in India and abroad. I have never done something like this before."
Since Shruti will undergo some rigorous training program, we might get to see her perform some high-octane action sequences in the series. She will soon fly off to Budapest for the prep and is expected to start shooting for the same soon. Talking about the series, the show will also star actors Michelle Forbes, Patrick Fugit, Michael Gaston and Tess Haubrich.
