Akshara Haasan, younger sibling of actress Shruti Haasan and ‘Chevalier’ Kamal Haasan’s youngest daughter, has been signed by Vishal to play a prominent role in his upcoming film titled as Thupparivaalan.
Vishal, Vinay Rai, Prasanna and K. Bhagyaraj play prominent roles in the film which pits Vishal for the first time opposite Rakul Preet Singh, who makes a ‘comeback’ in Tamil films after almost an year. Directed by mercurial film-maker Mysskin who has always treated his scripts as the real ‘hero’, the film would now have Akshara Haasan in a significant role.
It may be noted that Akshara Haasan is already committed to make her acting debut in Tamil in a prominent role in Ajith Kumar’s upcoming film which is being directed by Shiva and which hasn’t yet been titled. Vishal, who has just wrapped up the shoot of his Kaththi Sandai opposite Tamannaah, would be doubling up as the producer as well for Thupparivaalan.
Tweeting on his Twitter account, Vishal said “We have a new entry in the film in the form of Akshara Haasan; I’m happy to be working with her!” It may be noted that Akshara, who was earlier working as assistant director in Bollywood films, debuted as heroine in Hindi films with last year’s Shamitabh opposite Dhanush.
