Akshara, Kamal Haasan’s second daughter was learning the ropes of direction under Rahul Dholakia, a well known filmmaker in Bollywood. But the lure to be on the other side of the camera has proved too strong for Akshara.
Ace director Mani Ratnam had been looking for a new face for his film with Karthik’s son Gautham and he felt that Akshara with her natural good looks fit the bill perfectly. The veteran director convinced Akshara to don the greasepaint and enter the profession as an actress.
Akshara could not refuse as it has come from Mani Ratnam. Looks like after her father, mother and sister, it is finally her time to shine.
Kamal Haasan, Sarika, and Shruti are delighted that Akshara will be getting a dream launch.
