Actress Shruti Haasan, who will be seen in Nikhil Advani's D-Day, has already created whirlwind as her pictures from her upcoming film were released.

Shruti plays the character of Suraiya, a Karachi-based prostitute. As a part of the character's look, Shruti required to have a scar on her face.

"The story of the scar dates back to Suraiya's past, when she entered the world of sex trade at 16. She was given this scar when her face was cut open by a pimp," a source said.

Shruti's father, the legendary Kamal Haasan, who has over the years experimented with his looks in various films involving make-up and prosthetics, gave his inputs on the look of the scar.

Not a lot of people know the fact that Shruti, herself, has done a prosthetic make-up course. She, along with her father, were heavily involved in her look, giving inputs on the right colour, depth, how it would look as it ages etc.

The scar, in the recently launched trailer for the film, looks very real and does not look like make-up at all. The promo has been well received by audience and critics alike.

Along with Shruti, the film also stars Rishi Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Irrfan Khan, Aakash Dahiya, Huma Qureshi, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Sree Swara Dubey.

Produced by DAR Motion Pictures and EMMAY Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, the film is slated to hit the silver screen on July 19.
