Superstar Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruti Haasan seems to have a promising year ahead as she has a lot of Bollywood projects in her kitty.

The actress has three upcoming films and is paired opposite Bollywood hunks and action stars.

Shruti has bagged the lead actress role opposite Akshay Kumar in "Gabbar" directed by Telugu filmmaker Krish, which is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. The action drama is scheduled to release worldwide on 3 April 2015.

The actress will also be seen romancing Bollywood hunk John Abraham in "Welcome Back", which is a sequel to hit comedy flick "Welcome" (2007). Apart from the lead actors, the film also features Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, who will be reprising their respective roles from the prequel. The film is expected to hit the theatres early next year.

The "Ramaiya Vastavaiya" actress has also bagged another film named "Yaara" opposite Vidyut Jamwal. Helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film has a lot of action sequences and features Irrfan Khan in a pivotal role.

"All three films have a unique space from a storyline point of view and fall within different genres, the one common thread they all have is Shruti. She has chosen quite an eclectic bunch of films so that her versatility is showcased true to form." a source told Bollywood Life.

Interestingly, all the films are different from each other but are connected in terms of action and stunts.

"Another common thread in all these films is the link that connects all three of Shruti's co-stars – action and stunts, even though each are known for their individual styles and their positioning in the industry – Akshay being the superstar fighter and daredevil, John being the beefy macho man and Vidyut being the young generation's crusader of combat based action without cables or doubles based on his extensive martial arts background," the source added.
