The 19 year old Akshara Haasan, younger sister of talented Shruti Haasan, has been approached by several filmmakers but the teenager wants to learn the art of the game first. She wants to form a strong foundation before she debuts as an actor in films.
Akshara is now assisting film-maker Rahul Dholakia in the film Society, which is produced by Smita Thackeray and stars her mother Sarika as well as other veteran actors Om Puri, Randhir Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and Seema Biswas. Dholakia took Akshara as his assistant on the request of her mother. It is heard that Akshara is also reading a number of scripts and will make her Bollywood debut as soon as a script clicks with her.
According to a source, “Even after having star parents and with acting in her genes, Akshara has opted to wait and get more trained before taking the plunge." The colleagues of this younger Haasan girl are in all praise for her professionalism. She has been able to charm everyone on the sets. Her father Kamal Haasan and sister Shruti are constantly guiding her. Expectation will be high from her as all her other family members have already proved themselves in the industry.
