Actor and playback singer Shruti Haasan took to her Instagram handle to share a few pictures that didn't make 'the final cut' in an attempt to break the social media norms of posting 'perfect pictures'. From a swollen face to a bad hair day, Shruti's pictures received praise for many reasons.

"In a world of perfect selfies and posts - here are the ones that didn't make it to the Final Cut - bad hair day / fever and sinus swollen day / period cramp day and the rest hope you enjoy these too #stayweird," Haasan wrote.

I can't tell you how grateful, honoured and thankful I am every single day for your love and support. And what better way to celebrate that than to be on set today. Working, continuing to work and have the opportunity to express myself through this medium as well. Yeah, it's been amazing, I've been really...I don't have words, just thank you."

"Magical 13 years - I never actually thought I'd do more than a movie even I wasn't born to do this I learned to love it and cinema has become the greatest source of joy in my life - in fact it has given me the life I'm so grateful for .. through the years I've learned a lot how to weather success and failures , how to waltz with confidence and doubt and most of all to appreciate the honour of telling stories and giving souls to women I've never known before. I'm so eternally thankful for the love and appreciation I get and I never take it for granted , ever. (sic)," she concluded.
