Akshara Haasan to make Tamil debut


Akshara-Haasan-Tamil-debutKamal Haasan’s younger daughter Akshara, who made her debut in Hindi  with R. Balki’s Shamitabh, is all set to finally make her Tamil debut this week in superstar Ajith’s Vivegam.

Akshara, as we all know, is the mighty Kamal Haasan’s daughter, and therefore half Tamil. However those hoping to hear her talk Tamil in Vivegam are in for a disappointment.

Akshara plays an NRI in the movie. Apparently, all her dialogues are in English. When asked about her role in this Ajith starrer, Akshara says, “I play a pivotal role in Vivegam. I play a girl who is born and brought up abroad. My character’s plot runs parallel to Ajith sir’s character. I’d say my character helps take the film forward.”

It would seem Akshara is now following in her elder sister Shruti’s footsteps. Shruti began her career in Hindi films and then gravitated towards the Southern industries. Also, both sisters refused to be launched by their illustrious father, Kamal.

“They are self made young ladies and I am very proud of them. I haven’t seen Akshara in Vivegam as yet. But whatever she has done I am looking forward to enjoying,” says Kamal.
