The film opened to mixed reviews, but became commercially successful.
A critic from The Hindu noted: "rarely is a heroine given near-equal footing in Tamil films", describing her as "ravishing but that she ought to work harder on spontaneity, and fine-tune her Tamil accent", but concluded "the point is the actor shows promise".
The film was released on 11 April 2014, and eventually emerged as a "blockbuster" success.
Along with the rest of the film, Haasan received positive reviews for her performance, with one critic noting that she "plays her part well and looks glamorous".
Her first release of 2014, the Telugu film Yevadu, opposite Ram Charan Teja, emerged as a major commercial success.
Her second Telugu release of the year, Race Gurram, had Haasan star opposite Allu Arjun for the first time in her career.
She began her career as a music director with her father's production Unnaipol Oruvan and had her own music band and album. Her cousins are actresses Anu Hasan and Suhasini Maniratnam.
