I’d like to find my feet in Bol­ly­wood: Ak­shara

I’d love to do Tamil and Tel­ugu films, but now is not the time for me to go there

Ac­tor Ak­shara Haasan (left) wants to fol­low her el­der sis­ter, ac­tor Shruti Haasan’s foot­steps. The 23-year-old plans to es­tab­lish her­self in the Hindi film in­dus­try and then move to Tamil and Tel­ugu films.

“I’d love to do Tamil and Tel­ugu films, but now is not the time for me to go there. I’d like to find my feet in Bol­ly­wood first,” says Ak­shara, the daugh­ter of vet­eran ac­tors Ka­mal Haasan and Sarika.

The ac­tor even hopes to share screen space with her par­ents some­day, but ad­mits she has to work very hard to bet­ter her skills. “Both my par­ents are pow­er­ful and strong ac­tors so, I need to up my game be­fore I could dare to share the screen space with them,” says Ak­shara, who was last seen in film­maker R Balki’s Shamitabh.

Talk­ing about scripts, the ac­tor adds that she chooses her own scripts, and con­sults her par­ents only if she is not sure. “I take my own de­ci­sions. My par­ents have al­ways given me the op­por­tu­nity to grow and de­cide things for my­self,” says Ak­shara.

Ask her about her up­com­ing projects in Bol­ly­wood, and she says: “A few dis­cus­sions are hap­pen­ing, but noth­ing has been con­firmed as yet.”
