Sharing the frame with a stalwart like Amitabh Bachchan and a star actor like Dhanush in her debut movie ‘Shamitabh’ has helped Akshara Haasan imbibe a valuable learning for her film journey – that she must treat every new project as her first.
The 23-year-old, younger daughter of acclaimed actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika, was offered films galore before “Shamitabh” landed on her lap. And even though her role is one among those essayed by the Big B and Dhanush, Akshara completely surrendered herself for her role to the director of the film, R. Balakrishnan.
“I trusted Balki sir for ‘Shamitabh’. When I read the script, I loved it and I wanted to do it instantly. And knowing the fact that it has two amazingly talented actors, I didn’t let my trust go from Balki sir as I knew he’ll let me shine,” Akshara told.
Of course, the young and talented girl has been feeling the pressure of being the daughter of versatile actors, but she says “there was no pressure on me to star opposite such big names”.
“They all stood by my side and helped me grow as an actor. They actually made me feel comfortable on the sets. I have learnt a lot from them and there’s a lot more that I can still learn.
